2015 February 06-09 

Myall Lakes Primitive Camp is a lovely spot to camp with drop toilets, some water and no electricity.  The majority of the Campertrailer group are set up with battery and/or solar power and its not considered a problem.  Unfortunately it is a no dog area and some of the regulars couldnt come.
My plans were to have an easy weekend and I made this date and nut roll at home and used it for the first happy hour on the friday night. If I dont have Ghee I use butter.
The Date and Nut Roll I adapted from Shobhas blog at and for the original recipe visit her site. The ingredients drop down on this Youtube.

I made up Seeded Bread Dough at home and took half, keeping it in the refrigerator.  I divided it into nine rolls and left to rise for an hour and half.  Then Foil, Trivet, Stone (preheated) and cooked them for about 20 minutes on 200C.  The Youtube is from when I made it the first time into a loaf.

Adapted from Betsy's Oat and Seeded Bread in HBin5

2 Cups Wholemeal Flour
3 Cups Plain White Flour
1 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats
2 Tablespoons Flaxseed
3/4 Cup Pumpkin Seeds plus extra for sprinkling on top
3/4 Cup Sunflour Seeds plus extra for sprinkling on top
1/4 Cup Sesame seeds plus extra for sprinkling on top
1 1/2 Tablespoons granulated yeast
Tablespoon salt
1/4 cup vital wheat gluten
3 cups warm water
1/2 cup honey or agave syrup
1/4 cup neutral flavoured oil

A Cheesy Pullapart loaf is easy to make and worked well in the BabyQ.  I mixed a glass jar of cream cheese with a 250g stick of softened butter and a packet of dried french onion soup mix. You can use any shape of dense bread, I felt the long loaf would fit well in the BabyQ.  You cut the bread both horizontal and diagonal as you can see in the picture about 3cm apart and spread it with the mix in every direction.  I sprinkled some extra tasty cheese in as well and wiped the butter paper over the outside.  I then wrapped it tightly in alfoil and cooked it in a foil dish around 200C. On the stone with foil and trivet underneath for about 20 minutes, then undid the foil so the crust would crisp which took about 10 minutes.

This trip I took uncooked premade and frozen Spring Rolls/Lumpia and although I have baked them freshly made in the BabyQ as in the Youtube below(receipe drops down) this time I simply fried frozen 10 at a time in a frypan on a gas burner.  I found they are so hot that I could do a second batch and the first kept hot.  I maybe should consider making the smaller ones or cutting them in half for happy hour.

An escapee was captured and boiled for 20 minutes.

Unfortunately we needed more than one.

I decided to try pizza rollups as an easier way to serve pizza for Happy Hour.  You would be able to google a more exact recipe I made this up as I went.  I was to use the SR flour and Yoghurt dough recipe which is very popular at the moment but decided instead to use a carton of UHT cream which I mostly carry in the van.  I mixed one carton with 2 cups of SR Flour earlier in the day and put it in the refrigerator.
Then I fried a chopped up pepperoni and half an onion and put that aside to cool.

I rolled out the dough.

I like the Stir Through sauces and this was a spicy one.  I use about half a jar on a pizza.  For this I left about 3cm uncovered on the far side.

Sprinkle on the meat and onion mix

Sprinkle over some grated cheese, I happened to have some Pizza mix and I used about a cup full.
Roll it up as tight as you can.
Cut it into 12 equal pieces.  (I miscounted)
I placed them into a greased foil tray as I hoped it would help them hold their shape.

Sprinkled some more cheese on top
Baked about 200C on stone on top of trivit with foil underneath checking at 15 minutes and continuing till the tops were browned about another 5 minutes. The pulled out individually with a little knife help.  I cut them in halves for morning tea.
