These Steak Foil Packets (sometimes called Hobo Dinners) are so easy you will not believe it! Fold rice, steak, and onion soup mix into some foil, bake, and voila! Deliciously tender steak and rice, ready to pair with whatever vegetables you want!

Eric and I were packing up last weekend to go camping, and he came in from the other room suddenly and said, “I was just looking for my jacket that I always bring camping, and then I remembered a squirrel ate it.”

It’s true. As sympathetic as I am that the jacket is gone, I couldn’t help busting up laughing.

Last time we went camping a couple months ago, we went to Yosemite with my whole family. It was so fun, but I was in the throes of morning sickness, so wasn’t quite as present or on top of things as I normally am.

One morning I opened up the back of the van to get out breakfast supplies, when I came face to face with a squirrel that had been in our van ALL NIGHT. His beady little eyes met mine for half a moment before I started screaming my head off. And I do mean screaming, I do not do well with small woodland creatures invading my space. I probably woke up the entire campsite.

The squirrel made his escape of course, but not without leaving us with a few treasures and a completely destroyed jacket, which he had clearly nested in for the night.
