Campstove cooking

You may have noticed a lack of chatter, well we've been on holiday and I thought since summer keeps appearing, disappearing and popping back for a visit every now and then, it could be possible to have the odd dinner at the allotment.  We've been camping for a couple of weeks and managed some pretty exotic stuff on a little campstove, so I'll share them with you ;-)

As usual, what was supposed to be used will be in italics.  We had limited space, so just bought a tube of generic herbs & spices, and reused left over herbs, pasta or veges and adapted the recipes.  I know you're not surprised by now!

Fajitas - we used a collapsable camping frying pan, mince (chicken pieces), spices, onions, baguettes, cheese and lettuce

Lemon pasta - we used a wok, pasta shells (linguine), olive oil butter (oil) & a real lemon for the juice

  1. "Lyme Something-or-Other" Rosehip wine is utterly gorgeous... do you still have the photo of the label?

  2. WOW!!!! Tinned hotdogs being our favourite camping food doesn't even come near to all this posh nosh. Looks brilliant! Yummy. x

    How's the plot looking? I can't move today after putting in the last 2 rows of Late potatoes (Pink fir apple) and earthing up the other 7 rows :o/
