Caravanning Food – Challenge Accepted

It started as friendly banter between campsites in the caravan park but we took one-upmanship to a new level with an over the top wine and food matching evening with a little help from some friends. What started out as a decision to have a crab and squid linguine meal one evening with our freshly caught seafood soon turned into an all-out degustation for four, where we finished up matching drinks with each course and produced a menu of dishes that we would be happy to order out anytime.

See how you think we went with our menu.

Recipes from the Caravan

We live well on holidays! Going away with a big group of family and friends lends itself to trying new recipes or perfecting those old favourites.

In the caravan I always keep a soft folder full of plastic sleeves that I insert quick and easy typed up recipes for use on holidays.

Family, Farm, Fathers Day

We have just marked Fathers Day again in Australia on the first Sunday in September and for us that means it’s celebrated the way many dads would want. The time is spent very simply, surrounded by family and pets, outdoors around a campfire, burning some BBQ meat over flames, with a nice bottle of red to share with gathered family and friends.
