as i have have the burner lit i thought i'd try out a little cooking :)

normal ultra light weight food is basic to say the least (in my experience!) so i thought i'd cook a pasta and dried peas stew with a little seasoning and a nice chicken breast (cut up)
ok not ultra light but during three or so months of walking pot noodle is gonna get really dull!.
Having already primed the stove (see previous post) I set the breast and rice and seasoning into half a pot of water and left it too boil.
After reaching a rolling boil i took the pan from the heat (used about 25ml of meths outside with no wind shield) and put my home made pot cosy on and left it to simmer off the stove.
30 mins later i checked the food and all was cooked still steaming hot!

OK heston blumenthal may not have been impressed (Bunny!!!) but this is wholesome and different camping food which Alfie thoroughly enjoyed! lol! Ruth had made mousaka for tea!
