Seeking solitude...

Wet weekend mooching around Mt Barney NP....but it was good to give the hairy legs a workout. :wink:

Steamed Prawn dumplings were on the menu...

Rained all night long....dried fruit soaked overnight for breaky, soft claggy heavy clay walkout(note to self...don't take the low track after rain) & a chilly Mt Barney Creek washdown before jumping in the car.
Heaven.... 8)

Is that a coffee filter paper you've used there, or just baking paper?

Just some baking paper to stop the dumpling sticking to the titanium pan. Holes cut in for steam.

Whenever I see a post from ofuros, I realise my camp cooking is woeful. You should write a book, not just recipes but the techniques you use as well. Very creative and better than most things I eat at home!

Except for that pic of muddy boots and gaiters lol, looks like heaven. Also what kind of hat is that (if you don't mind me asking)?

A wide brimmed akubra Territory for sun protection with few extra grommets added for better ventilation. Cheers Snooze.
