I teamed up with Idaho Potatoes to create this southern classic in a foil grill packet.
6 whole months I’ve been living in Oakland as of today. The other night, we were having dinner at a friends house (Yes! A friend!) and I was talking about how I’m finally starting to feel “normal” again. There is still so much that is unfamiliar, and every day brings a new experience, but we’re no longer “unpacking” or “setting things up”, now we’re just living. It’s nice to be in a routine.
With the daily chaos and emotional turmoil subsiding, I’m starting to find time to reach out to all the people who I’ve been virtually introduced to, all the people I know who live in this part of the state, and to start checking items off my 52 weekends list. We’ve been unintentionally checking off items here and there, but I’m ready to start putting in a concerted effort.
One of the things I was most looking forward to when we moved to Northern California, was spending more time hiking. I’ve spent a good deal of my life in the woods, and it’s something I never realized I was missing until I got to do it more often. We’ve been out with the dogs most weekends, checking out different trails and soaking in the gorgeous scenery.
Recently I learned that the national park system here in America is celebrating it’s 100th birthday this month. My friends at the Idaho Potato Commission contacted me to create some outdoorsy recipes that feature Idaho potatoes. I was already inspired due to all my woodsy walks lately, so I had plenty of ideas. I’m kicking things off with one of my all time favorite outdoor recipes that I learned from my favorite family of South Carolinians, the Phillips family.
These Low Country boil grill packets are a new twist on this classic southern recipe. Low country boil ingredients are traditionally boiled all together in a large pot (throw a dutch oven on the campfire!) but I made mine in foil grill packets. It’s a super fun recipe that each camper can assemble on their own.
