Sunday lunch

What springs to mind when I say “Sunday lunch”? Is it the family sat round the dining table, tucking into roast beef and yorkshire puddings, or you relaxing at your favourite pub possibly enjoying a carvery? Whatever your thinking I can’t imagine it’s the same as our Sunday lunch today. In my previous post I told you that we’d just taken delivery of a frontier stove and how I couldn’t wait to use it. Well, I really couldn’t wait. I found myself a tasty little recipe for lamb tagine, packed a box with all the cooking equipment and ingredients and took it all up to the stables in Ilkley to give it a run out.

Once it got there I unpacked the stove, assembled it in a matter of minutes, found myself some timber and lit her up. While the stove was warming up I fashioned a table out of random bits and bobs that were lying around and got my food prep area ready.

To be honest, I haven’t cooked in many better kitchens. I know it’s winter and the in car thermometer was reading in the minuses, but having Addingham Moorside as back drop isn’t too bad.

Once everything was chopped I threw it all in the pan, placed it on the stove and sat back and read my Sunday paper.

A couple of hours later and we were ready to dish up. Funny how a fragrant big pan of food get’s a crowd gathered. A few of the stables regulars grabbed themselves anything that resembled a plate and formed themselves an orderly queue. We threw some cushions on the floor, plated up and got stuck in.

As you can see from the picture, I think they enjoyed it. Impromptu lunch, on a crisp Yorkshire winter’s day with a group of friends. Not a bad way to spend your weekend I’m sure you’ll agree.

I wonder what’s on the menu for next week?

Our new Frontier Stove

This week, we took delivery of our very first Frontier stove. Take a look at the pictures, aren’t they beautiful? We can’t wait to start using it.

I assembled it in our kitchen the other night and found it very easy to put together. It packs down neatly, is nice and lightweight and is ideal for a family camping trip. It was designed in partnership with the humanitarian community and has been deployed to a number of disaster situations worldwide.

All in all though, the Frontier Stove is a fully functioning heater/cooker that’s going to take pride of place as the centrepiece in the Ultimate Glampit package.

Planning your next trip?

Well Christmas is out of the way and most people have returned to work. So hands up, who has been looking at holidays?
Over the last couple of days whilst flicking through the channels, I’ve noticed the increase in TV ads for brightly coloured airlines and their summer deals. It got me thinking of when I’ll be able to steal a couple of days for my first little holiday of the year. I’m pretty keen to get out and go camping whenever, but my girlfriend still insists on a little more sunshine than we get in January.
How early is too early for camping in Yorkshire? I don’t want to wait for the summer sun to arrive for a chance to relax and unwind.
Our bell tent has a roomy enough interior to fit in a stove to keep it nice and cosy, even with frost on the ground.
Right that’s decided, I’m on the look out for the perfect Yorkshire winter spot. Anybody got any ideas?
