Perhaps I should change chinese supermarket to Devon. Ever thought of setting youself up as the next CTC tea stop? There's another thread somewhere of a LEJOG via cafes..... There's a thought: I live within 4 or 5 miles to the 'Somerset' border sign, which features in Toontra's LEJoG blog - blimey,...

Aah, OK.

My last camping trip was Pasta with Tuna and Sweeetcorn, only using a MSR Titanium Kettle. It works :wink:


Very inventive. (And impressive.) I love this sort of cooking!

Getting ready to go do the 'proud mamma thing' and watch my eldest child sing and dance her way through the part of Rizzo in the end of year school production of 'Grease'!

Can't wait!

There are some great sandwich ideas on this thread .... and some slightly worrying ones, too!

:D

I've just had lunch: granary roll with freshly-picked various leaves, cold roast chicken, basil leaves, tomato and balsamic vinegar and roasted garlic dressing.

YUM!

I have yet to 'tour' - I have the feeling that hanging out here might change all that - but, I have been amazed at the sense of liberation that I experience while cycling. I say amazed, it truly didn't occur to me! I thought I would be so busy working hard at cycling that I wouldn't have time to adm...

I cannot/will not eat sandwiches with butter/spread if they have anything other than Marmite on them. And like Manx Cat - also love oatcakes - I try to avoid bread, and try not to eat ...

This is similar to Manx Cat's bulgar wheat recipe - and you could do it with couscous, too. And answers a question I saw which was posed by Tommo, I think .... how do you make ...
