Little Sag Steak & Potatoes   
A classic, hearty meal

2 6-ounce sirloin steaks (prepacked frozen in zip-top bags)
1 package instant potatoes
1½ teaspoons salt
1 tablespoon pepper
1 tablespoon oregano
1 tablespoon thyme

Mix salt, pepper, oregano, and thyme in a zip-top bag, then rub seasonings onto both sides of the steaks. Cook to preference on fire grate. Bad weather backup: Pan fry. Prepare potatoes according to box. Serves two.

Rocky Point Pizza

Italian made easy

6 small flour tortillas
1 bag pepperoni
1 squeeze bottle pizza sauce
1 package shredded Cheddar

Build a rock oven: Stack flat rocks in the shape of a 10-inch-high bridge on top of the fire grate. Slather pizza sauce on tortillas. Add cheese and pepperoni. Place pizza in a pan; slide it under rock oven once rocks are hot (10 minutes). Cook until cheese is melted. Serves two.
