Schools may be gearing up to welcome students back whether physically or virtually, but summer still isn’t over quite yet! The weather calls for a few more weekends of summer activities, such as camping, pool-side parties, spending time at the lake or the beach, hiking, and just enjoying the outdoors in general. This recipe is perfect for a night of camping or grill at home outside with a tent pitched in the backyard for a little social distancing fun!
