#47 Cook On A (Camp) Fire

The sun blazed down, faces were painted at the Summer Fayre, a cooling breeze blew across our skins as we scooted across the barrage, and wispy clouds floated across the azure sky.

That was our Saturday afternoon, and the reason that we decided to attempt a barbecue last night. Off we trotted and stocked up on firelighters, strawberries (for the Pimm's), finger rolls, potato salad and peppers (for the kebabs). How was I to know that this would be the signal for the clouds to gather and threaten our idyllic day?

Nonetheless, we huddled on the patio and enjoyed our bizarre mismatch of cuisine, before having a go at toasting marshmallows on the smouldering (camp)fire.

The Boy's face at the excess charcoal says it all, still tasted great though!

    Going ahead was definitely the right choice, seeing The Boy's happiness with toasting the marshmallows was worth it. Sometimes forging ahead regardless of the weather turns out just fine, thanks for coming over and sharing with Country kids.

    My guys would love to do this. My son is very almost 11 3/4 so I'm thinking we probably won't get the whole 50 things done. But I'm definitely going to get him doing this. Anything which includes food when you're an 11 year old boy is a hit, right?
