I prepared some stuffed peppers and tomatoes, I wedged those into the pan and popped a few baby potatoes in too and just placed it into the glowing white embers. Time then to sit back and have a glass of something nice and chat to our neighbours Berny and Sue, again part of the holiday experience, making new friends. Half an hour later the vegetables were cooked, soft and succulent and a great side to our sausages and burgers that we cooked alongside.
We had chosen the campsite near Blenheim Palace as it is only twenty minutes away from where our youngest daughter lives. It was her birthday during our trip, so I invited her and her chap, our other daughter and her chap and our little two-year-old granddaughter to join us for a meal in the caravan.
As they are all vegetarians, I carefully chose a dish to cook in the caravan. I picked everyone’s favourite, a vegetable lasagne. I prepared a selection of side salads and dips. We sat outside for the first hour or so, catching up on news and enjoying a few glasses of birthday bubbles. It was quite blustery so when it was time to eat, we moved inside, and all six adults and one small wriggle bottom sat comfortably around the main dining table and I utilised the side dinette for a self-service buffet and displaying the star of the show, the birthday cake!
After we had demolished the meal and sang our birthday wishes, we set about playing a board game. It was such a smashing afternoon, all my family together, relaxing in such a superb space, our lovely Pegasus Grande caravan.
