    Camp Cook challenge!



    Those of you in Scouts may be familiar with the Camp Cook Challenge (otherwise known as the £2.50 challenge). Those of you that aren't, it basically involves preparing a 4-course meal (entrée (small finger food), starter, main course, pud) for 6 people on a budget of £2.50 per head. Any recipe ideas that could win us the 'cook Challenge' spoon 2012???

    I don't know how expensive this would be but it's just an idea (Depending on how much money the other ingreatiants are you could add prawns to make it an un-spicy thai style dish) :

     thought of a cheap pud!

    1 small tub of icecream, and 1 choco bar. just put scoops of icecream in bowls, then melt choco over firethen make swirls/ shapes on paper to put on top of the icecream. pick some (edible) berries to sprinkle on top if possible

    Hoi(hope ihelped)

    I did this when I was a scout! Well, something similar.

    We had, prawn cocktail (prawns in mayonaise), beefburgers (beef clumped together with flour in a bun, and some cucumber), and for pudding we had apple pie, (loads and loads of sugar, apples, and ready made pastry). It was amazing until we burnt our cardboard oven. (We were on camp- something called emlyn a competitition thing and had to cook on fire).

    A little tip, always remember to bring everything, I know it sounds pretty obvious, but we ended up eating chocolate spread on lettece, with potatoes that were way undercooked because forgot loads (on our practice one).

    Stir-fry is always easy. Just check the best before dates.

    Chin up and keep strong! Love Emma xxx

    You guys are brilliant! Thanks for the Pad Thai-esque idea courtesy of cheekylittlemonkey (it went down a storm), especially. Because of your help we won the Camp Cook Challenge 2012!!
