Oops sorry... a tad late!
Where do I start?
First off, that beautifully laid table of Geoff & Wendy's oozes class, but I'm reluctant to go for that for two reasons... one, they left the milk out to fester in the sun, and two, I've become rather fond of that pair over the years, and didn't want to be accused of favouritism.
I'm also reluctant to vote for Tracey's sunday roast, as tempting as it looks, as I believe I may well know the site, and guess it was delivered from the on-site cafe... and I've become rather fond of Tracey over the years, and didn't want to be accused of favouritism!
Further reluctance goes to Bailey and his bowl of delights... because I've become rather fond of him over the years, and didn't want to be accused of favouritism!
Honorary mentions goes to:
Ewen's Big French sausage, not only for the giggle it caused to my left, but also the twinkle in a certain lady's eye! It's been a while!
Kenny's linguine looks the biz, and whilst I'm not usually one for "Hey come and join us, it'll be fun", I must say all those big-table get-togethers do look like everyone is enjoying themselves, and a particularly impressive long table for Tracey's Jubilee celebrations.
It's also good to see kids enjoying their food, so a big up to all the kids and their thumbs ups, especially Bea, about to tuck into her veg, whilst keeping a smile on her face!
Anyway... The voting has been cast...
Third place goes to the bright, the delicious, and the tasty... that's the macaroons, not Sean!!
To someone who appears to do it the hard way. The poor people who can't afford a table, or even a proper chair. No sign of a tent above knee height, and certainly no two ring stoves and kitchen units in sight.
I'll hold my hands up and openly admit, I just couldn't camp like that, but hold nothing but high admiration for those that can, and do.
Runner up goes to Sean's Porridge and coffee morning. Maybe not camping that I would enjoy, but arguably camping as it should be!
Now... going against everything I've just written for the runner-up...
It may have taken a mini oven... yes, an oven, no less... in a tent... and no doubt a tent you can indeed stand upright in (Even if the tubes are all bandaged up!)... but I have to say, that chicken in white wine sauce, and certainly the roasties, all looks bloody fantastic, and oven or no oven, Tim's foil-lined mouthwatering offering is this months winner...
Well done to all, and a big thank you to all who took the time and effort.
Over to you Tim, for October's topic.
