Stir Fry Chicken recipe

Chicken tonight? Try Stir-Fried Chicken with Chillies and Peanuts

Delicious! The teen particularly loved it – I think because it was so saucy. He said for me to add more chilli next time! (This was probably because instead of four small chillies I had one larger red chilli.) I did also add bok choy, and shallots (or spring onions), too. We served Stir-Fried Chicken with Chillies and Peanuts with brown rice, for added fibre and lower GI. It was all part of COVID cooking – whipping up recipes from the Camps Australia Wide Community Cookbook during lockdown.  Highly recommend – thanks to Doug Minnnis who contributed this recipe to the new

Fire Pit

I hope the Easter Bunny hopped to your home last weekend?

Heatley and I have been on a ‘reboot’, and Easter Sunday marked the end of two months of eating changes and fitness fun. Who’d have thought we could get through the COVID crisis so far without alcohol or the caravan? So with the world turning topsy turvy, and even our ANZAC ceremonies are affected – like many camping families, we have installed a fire-pit at home.  We are extra grateful to return to ‘normal’ Easter traditions: the chocolate bunny and candy egg, a beverage or two by the fire – and we’re telling the kids, it’s almost as good as camping! We have received

Kingscliffe North Holiday Park
Beaches & Coasts

Is this Australia’s best camp kitchen?

Yes, the view is impressive, but so is what is inside! After Kingscliff Beach Holiday Park had their makeover, I do believe this camp kitchen may be THE best I have seen yet! What do you think? Where have you found amazing camp kitchens? When we lapped with our tribe, we were grateful to find a stove! Once we found an oven. Salivating we purchased oven fries, crumbed chicken, and an apple pie. When we got back to the caravan park, we found out the gas oven was not even hooked up! Apple pies don’t go so well on a
