The week started with sunshine and gradually it has moved toward a thick blanket of cloud and drizzle. This is the portent for a few days camping in the wilds of Scotland. Camping would never be the same without the rain.
The day commenced with preparations – two loaves of bread put in the oven, spelt and gluten free. Meanwhile coleslaw, hummus and pesto were prepared and refrigerated. Following this, oatcakes and a very lovely flapjack batch (if I do say so myself) were prepared and entered the oven after the bread came out. Washing up, clothes washing and a clean bathroom were part of this multi-tasking feat.
Take a break to learn how to use the new equipment we’d bought recently, including how to pitch the tent. Good cup of tea accompanied with a flavoursome flapjack (if I do say so myself). Stew simmers on the stove – thought it wise to have a hearty arrival meal prepared, it’s a 9 hour journey.
Taking the second of my breaks to let you know I’ll catch up with the haiku when back and hope to provide a feast of gorgeous photos of Scotland.
PS – flapjacks made with one GF oats, 2 bananas, 180g dates, 125g butter, 3 tbls homegrown honey, chopped hazelnuts, vanilla essence, mixed together, pressed into a greased tin, 25 mins at 175C.
