Cheese and salami is our fav. Milo sounds interesting! Does that make it a cake?

hi eric, my favourite got to be the kids twisting it up on the end of a stick and toasting it over the fire, gives me time to sit down and have a beer (or maybe a scotch in your case). at yerranderie last weekend it only took 5 mins before the caretaker was after them for chasing kangaroos. cheers

Eric as you must have found over time you get bored sometimes with food, I must say that as a young lad in an age when boys Didn't cook my Mother, grand mothers & Aunties all Taught me to cook, being a boy from the bush fresh produce was always available, with what seemed like an endless supply of eggs & flour cooking was something that happend ever day.

as for the damper though my grand father used to spend weeks at a time camped out in the bush doing jobs, guess who got to go along as well :-) old fashion billy tea and fresh bamper! oh those where the days!

another few simple addition to the basic damper recipe:-
a teaspoon of tea leaves, and a spoon full of sugar! he used to use the end of the billy to make up the damper!

adult damper:- mixed dry fruit(easy to carry) port(require drinking in cold weather) soak fruit over night in port then add to damper in the morning!

Now every one drinks Coffee! hmmmm.... no wonder the world has gone a little crazy

Eric,
There is a good Aussie pocket sized cookbook by Lummo...Rabbit on a Shovel....Published by Primavera. It is all about Aussies cooking around the campfire. Lots of different recipes. Not too much on damper. We like to put a beer in the mix..make beer bread or beer damper. Tastes pretty good.
Cheers
