PAH pot kettle calling us "special needs" CW
Its in the greater name of mankind and the rest of you that I will not be eating chilli
nor a bacon butty, I could have the bread but hardly going to keep me going so I shall be mostly having PODDIDGE mmmm for which I'll just need heated water (assume tea urn will suffice that)
and a cuppa. Dinner hmmm
as said if theres Jacket spuds I can have the tattie so if on offer I will make use of that, just won't be risking the chilli, no offense to whoever makes it, I really like chilli, unfortunately the feelings aren't reciprocated and it doesn't like me
so rather than let it make me ill it will be a pass on that for me as well.

ok, so that's breakfast and lunch sorted, is there a plan for food on the sat. night?

Thought I'd better say that I won't be having the chilli, yup I'm another one with a dodgy tum
Can someone confirm whether there's a microwave and will we be able to use it? as that will help me plan what I can bring with me to eat, otherwise it's going to be whatever I can heat up over a camping stove.

Never heard of acorn tea, sounds intruiging and vile at the same time

Anyways heres some how to make your own Acorn coffee recipes for porta
Boy sprout method
You will need:
ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â¢ About 40 acorns ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â¢ Salt
ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â¢ Milk and sugar as required ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â¢ Water
1. Wash the acorns well and chop them roughly, using a sharp knife.
2. Place on three sheets of foil, on which you have pierced holes, and place over the hot embers for about five minutes, shaking regularly.
3. Remove from the fire and allow to cool before chopping the acorns up into smaller pieces and adding eight cupfuls of boiling water in a foil pan, adding a small pinch of salt to the water.
4. Simmer for three or four minutes and immediately prior to serving, add a small quantity of cold water to make the acorn grounds settle.
5. Serve with milk and sugar as required, and enjoy
Ray Mears method
