1. Meal in Foil

This meal is super easy to adjust each person gets to make and cook her own meal! "I brought this treat to my family after working as a Girl Scout leader," says WALLEN. "It's a great way to let kids make their own meal. You may make these packages as large as you want for hearty appetites, allowing a little more time for cooking. This is great for pool parties, camping, etc."
