Boil whole beets in a pot with water and about 3 tablespoons pickling spice (I used McCormick's pickling spice mixture but I would imagine you could whip up your own if you were so inclined).
This will take about an hour but it's low maintenance. You want the beets to be tender.
Allow the beets to cool.
Peel and slice the beets into about 1/2 inch rounds.
Warm up the grill and apply a thin coat of olive oil.
Place the beet rounds on the grill. All you're trying to do here is make the outside of the beet slices kind of crispy.

toss in olive oil and garlic
wrap in tin foil. (serious wrapping so it doesn't rip open...which sucks)
place over fire until all veggies are done - about 40 minutes.
baked beans are beside them. open can. place in dish. heat till warm. easy peasy.
tofu dogs: heat as you choose. on a stick, in specially made grilling utensils, on the grates.
we prepare this prior to leaving so that all you need to do is wake up and throw it in a pan
1 green pepper
1 red pepper
1 package of extra firm tofu
1 tbsp nutritional yeast
chop peppers and onion
press all the water out of the tofu
crumble tofu with a fork
mix veggies and tofu together
add tofu mixture to pan with olive oil and garlic
add salt, pepper and nutritional yeast to taste
heat until sufficiently scrambled
we love asparagus in case you haven't noticed
