Recipes of the month: Brian's Baked Onions Large onions of your favorite variety - one per person Butter or margarine Beef bouillon cubes - one per onion
Remove dry outer layer. Slice off the ends. Core out small amount from top of onion. Put one bouillon cube and pat of butter in core. Wrap in foil. Set on grill, offset of fire, or bake in oven at 350 for 1 – 1 ½ hours. I never thought I'd eat a whole onion, as a side dish, but I couldn't stop myself!

Engage the kids: When the children are at ease, the parents have a good time. Print up a few mailing labels with, "Assistant Campground Host" and space for the child's name. While the parent writes names on the labels, have the children take the 'oath', saying 'Yes' to each question. Customize and add your own personality. Do you promise to: - maintain a clean campsite? - protect the forest? - do not feed the wildlife? - listen to Mom and Dad? - and above all, HAVE FUN? Have the parent put the tag on the child's shirt to make it official. Thanks, Brian and Carol, for the fun idea!!! - more Hosting tips -
