In Basils case ....


No 1...pulling over on the hard shoulder and getting your flask and two deckchairs out of the boot.

..

PS... you cant walk very far if you can.....

Those top of the range beef Vol-o-vent sound magnificent.

I warrant even LL would break into a smile if you passed him one whilst he was pulling the nails from his lunch crate.

Of course, only so long as they'd been heated to the regulation temp.....

A good crusty loaf of bread and a large Thermos flask of thick soup can make a good mid morning snack.
I've not tried it myself yet, but I've heard that a sheep, caught, strangled and roasted over a log fire can be good if you've forgotten or lost your packed lunch. Better still would be venison, wild of course as the farmed version is nothing like as tasty.

Lounge Lizzard, Now you're talking! Remember the dough can be proving throughout the night and whacked into a hot oven for 25 minutes or so, or rolls, 10-12 minutes, as you're getting your breakfast and putting your boots on. The soup of course can be the homemade soup from the night before and tipped into a flask.

N.B.: FOR THOSE SELF CATERING ONLY!

Look for a dry rock, or not if you've waterproofs and you're off!

Basil (torn and never chopped)

OK. Here's a question.

What is the most exotic dish our current tenting readers have cooked in or over a camp fire?

Blue tongue lizard also tastes like chicken.

Normally tho' I cook up Chili Non Carne, Spag Bol, Curry or Tuna and Couscous.

Isle of Lewis wild salmon fillet wrapped in foil and baked on the fire with infusion of ginger, soy, garlic, corriander and sprinkling of sesame oil and shoyu) served with braised hijiki and sesame seeds (prepared at the cottage and wrapped in foil for easy reheating on the fire).
Ate out of the foil with grubby mits, back of sleeves as napkins.

All above infusion ingredients fitted into a waterproof matchbox. Though it was a shame that Stornaway corner shop were out of pak choi that day!
