Hi all, just got my username and thought I'd chip in,
It confuses me that people go to some of the most spectacular locations and then eat baked beans for lunch and snags every night, not that there's anything wrong with that, each to there own, but my theory is, if you can cook something at home, with a bit of creativity, you can cook it in the bush. Lets face it what do you have plenty of when camping? Time
We cook roasts and now that I've just finished building my campfire rotisserie we will be spit roasting too. We also bake cakes, usually after a roast because the oven is still hot and it bakes as we eat dinner. We tried those packet cakes but nothings better than cake made from scratch. You dont have to bake damper, unless thats your thing, why not a bake a loaf of bread instead. If you fish and lucky enough to catch one, the ways to cook them are endless, and crayfish or even yabbies are a great side dish, the kids love catching yabbies and cooking them. And if this is all to much for you, a nice piece of T bone with vegies and roast potatos. You can cook the can vegies and roast some potatos in foil in the coals. Be ambitious, you wont know if it works unless you try.
Always remember that your not the last person to visit, be a responsible camper to insure future generations get to see.
