Our girls have all been enjoying summer cookouts in the woods with their Guide Units in the run up to the summer holidays. This has inspired Michelle and I to have a cookout of our own, as keen campers we both love being outdoors and cooking plays a large part in that. However, rather than cook the basics today, we decided to do something a bit different and opted instead for tandoori prawns with flatbreads and a yoghurt dip. Prawns are great to cook with, easy to prepare and marinade and super quick to cook. Lunch for two in no time!
We cook outdoors often, our barbecues getting put to good use throughout the year. On this occasion we had plenty of time to cook and decided we wanted to use Michelle’s new wood fired pizza oven, cooking both the prawns and the flatbreads on the pizza stone. Michelle picked up the pizza oven for £99 at Aldi earlier in the summer, it’s been a great buy so far with pizza’s being made regularly. Today we wanted to try cooking some seafood and flatbreads and amidst lots of smoke and sore eyes, we had a great morning.
It’s almost July and school holidays are upon us, therefore we will be taking a break over the summer holiday period while I pack up my tent and head off the the Cornish coast camping with my family and Michelle gets started on her house renovations. This will be our last recipe post for a couple of weeks, however we will post from Instagram over the summer. Happy holidays to all our readers and we look forward to seeing you all in August.
