Remember back in day when you’d go camping and cook entire meals wrapped in foil? That was always my favorite part of Girl Scouts! Now that I’m a grown up, I had the opportunity to recreate those fun meals for a lovely sunset dinner on the beach with John and our friends. Armed with a blanket, a small grill, some wine, and our grilled pineapple chicken and veggie foil packets, we headed out to the North Shore!
