Setting the stage for a cool evening outdoors with a bonfire, provides a fun and relaxing night. The evening can be a gathering to explore foods cooked over an open fire. With cast iron pots and grills, preparing food in a rustic and primitive approach gives food different flavors. It can also be very adventuresome to cook this way. From chili to roast pig, outdoor cookouts provide a variety of food options to get creative with.
Being in October, outdoor activities and treats can be coordinated for the fall gathering. Celebrate festivities with the following ideas:
- Pumpkin Carving
- Bobbing for Apples
- Donut on a String
- Apple Cider
- Kettle or Caramel Popcorn (over fire)
- Roast Chestnuts
- Candy Apples
Josh and Amber have this as an annual cookout/bonfire tradition as a family gathering. They carve pumpkins for the evening and enjoy dipping crisp, sweet apples into caramel sauce. It is a fun event they enjoy and continue it each year.
