In our house we like a pretty simple Hobo packet. We typically stick with baby red potatoes, canned corn and hamburger meat. But you can put any vegetable you like in them. When we were camping a few weeks back I did zucchini, squash, baby reds and hamburger. They tasted great! Here is what you will need for a successful Hobo meal:
The Ultimate Monthly Meal Plan On A Budget
Variety of Veggies (I’m using baby red potatoes and canned corn)
The first step is to make the hamburger meat. I like to use an 85/15 ground beef for this. The fat runs off and adds flavor to the vegetables. This part can be as simple or as complex as you would like. I just add some hamburger season, salt and pepper. Then I mix it all together and set aside.
Next – tear off large pieces of tinfoil. One for each meal you are going to make. Lay them flat on a counter or table and spray one side with Pam. Slice up your potatoes and lay them on the bottom. These take the longest to cook so make sure you are cutting them thin. Thick ones will take forever and your meat can dry out from overcooking. If you are using carrots I’d slice them thin too so that they can cook faster. Once my taters are sliced up in each packet (usually 3-4 baby reds depending on the size of them) I like to add a dollop of butter and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Galette sounds fancy, but it's easier to make than pie. Try this simple recipe
Sugary, buttery, fruity and crisp, a good galette is a beautiful thing. It's also quick, easy and customizable. Here's a recipe to get you started.That's right, you can make this spectacular, shows-stopping dessert with very few ingredients and even fewer steps.
Next is where you can add any vegetable you would like. I did canned corn because that’s what I had on hand. I wold not use any other canned vegetable. All other vegetables should be fresh. I scoop some corn out and place it on top of the potatoes.
Then I go back to the hamburger meat and start making thin hamburger patties. The thinner the burger the quicker it will cook. Try to make the thickness consistent or you could end up with a raw center. Once my patties are made I place them on top of the mound of food and then close up the packet. If you are cooking your meal in the oven, preheat the oven to 375F, place on a cookie sheet (in case you have butter or hamburger juice drip out of the packet this will contain it) and bake for about 45 minutes or until potatoes and meat are done. On the grill, cook over medium for about a half hour or so until potatoes and meat are done.
Are school lunches free this year? What to know now that pandemic-era meal program is ending
The National School Lunch Program is returning to regular income-based payment rules. Amid inflation, some worry about an increase in child hunger.Advocates worry about the implications of the change, which some estimate could affect 10 million children. Research suggests the universal free meal program made a sizable dent in child hunger rates, and may have even promoted academic achievement. Hunger and poor nutrition can significantly undermine learning.
While these do take some time to cook they are delicious. And you can even make it all the night before and then just take the packets out of the fridge and cook when you get home. It’s an easy dinner that requires very little supervision while it cooks.

My family of 4 spent $130 on dinner at Sci-Fi Dine-In in Disney World, and the affordable meal was definitely worth it .
I'm a travel planner, and I tried the Hollywood Studios' restaurant with my husband and two children. The theme was so fun, and the food was tasty.Since all Disney resort hotels have a small fridge, an easy trick is to stock it with your own groceries. We typically have milk, yogurt, water bottles, cheese sticks, and soda.
