Oat Cakes

Last night we ate out under the stars and pines. We had hotdogs on sticks over the fire, and beans, peaches and brown bread from tine cans. Not my choice of a good meal, but we needed the cans.

Coral washed the cans while Jade and 'quoise made oatmeal mush. This hard to do on an open fire but great of you want it thick and yukky for oat cakes. At the last minute they stirred in some raisins and sunflower seeds. These were poured into the tin cans to sit out in the cold over night.

Just before the tea party I will cut open the bottom of the cans. Then they can push the glop through and slice it off in thick portions with a plastic cake knife. These will be fried in some margarine. Years ago we always used left over bacon grease.

Get ready!

This sounds wonderful - we'll get good and mucky and covered in oatmeal, then feast! I always have some potatoes with me, hope you don't mind if I chuck a few around the edges of your campfire.

Picnics are special: We oldies have a roll up table and chairs! Corn on the cob is my favourite. We are still looking forward to your Hallowe'en visit.
