A mouth watering thread.... :D

Also done the gas braai renting at the picnic spots with eggs, bacon, tomato onions and toast. The one challenge is that the braais get sticky and one must then know how to cope without eggs breaking etc. Nevertheless, alsways lekker to soak up the atmosphere with smells around, scenery etc.

Lunch time, especially in summer, we enjoyed some cucumber, lettace, tomato, cheese and ham sandwiches. It is always refreshing after the morning drive. Then we hit the bed for a power nap or swim and then energised for the afternoon drive shift.

Sometimes when we braaied the evening, we braai enough for the next morning when we do a stop at some points and enjoy a boere sausage on roll or cheese griller etc.

The biltong bites, nuts and dried fruit always great in the car between meals. :thumbs_up:

Torticat is always in a hurry leaving camp in the morning so breakfast is yoghurt with muesli and a few cups of Tea. Lunch is Avocado and Tomato Sammies with cheese. The braai is reserved for the evening, when I am usually so tired that I don't care what I eat.

What do you take with you to Kruger to have for lunches when you are relaxing in camp?
Breakfasts and dinners are never a problem, but lunch is another story!

We never have a "meal" for lunch, we have things like, a handful of nuts or biltong, maybe an apple, some dried fruit roll or dried mango etc. Breakfast and dinner are our most important meals of the day. We are normally driving around at lunchtime or at the pool or even having a nap :hmz: :hmz: and most of the time it is just too hot to eat

Any other suggestions? Such as nothing that includes going to the take-away at the camp. Something simple, tasty and not too much hassle

We are used to only having cereal for breakfast (which only sustains me until about 10 a.m.). I also have a health problem and have to have food roughly every 2 1/2 hours and I'm not allowed dried fruit or nuts so -

As I'm eating my cereal I make up 2 or 3 rounds of sandwiches. Some of the fillings we use are -

we spread Vegemite (its like thick marmite and we always bring it with us from Australia) on the bread and add cheese and lettuce to form a sandwich.
Another variety of sandwich I make is just bully beef (from a tin) with either tomato sauce or chutney. The sandwiches have to be quick and easy to make as I'm always anxious to get out of the gates. Sometimes if I'm really organized I make them the night before.

We wrap the sandwiches in Alfoil and put them in an esky/cooler bag chilled with bottles of frozen water (our cold drinks for the day), and plenty of fresh fruit.

I always make 2 thermos up - 1 of coffee for me and 1 of tea for my husband.

If the food I have prepared runs out before we get back to camp we usually carry some dry crackers in the car and sweets for emergencies (if we're stuck in an animal roadblock for ages).

I know lots of locals have a huge cooked breakfast at the first picnic spot they come to and that probably lasts them until late afternoon.
Hope this is of some help. :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up:

I tend to be a nibbler and I am a very, very lazy cook.

Foods that last well and survive the heat if they are kept in a cooler bag:

Woolies hot cross buns
Woolies cheese platters
left over boerri from the night before.
Nando's perinase sauce.

I try to take pro-vita biscuits and a big failing of mine is Lays chips or Woolies kettle fried chips.

For drinks, once my early morning coffee is over, I try to take isotonic drinks that I have frozen in the freezer the night before. I also try to freeze lots of water, if possible.

I also love milk, so I sometimes buy milk on the way and drink it neat... without Amarula. Amarula and milk makes quite a pleasant sundowner drink.. especially if you can pour it over ice.

Sometimes I buy an ice-cream. Simple wafer ice-creams usually do the trick of filling the gap.

I usually make jaffles (on the fire) the night before, and eat them cold the next day, with an apple, dry wors, or other 'snacky' stuff.... and wash it down with beer, of course :D

We also mostly only do breakfast and dinner. With lots of snacking in between 8) (Sweets, chips, sandwiches, provitas, crackers... :redface: Not very healthy! :redface: ) Our drinks include a flask of coffee for early morning drives, frozen water and fruit juice.

We look like we a are moving camp every morning when we leave with all our food and drinks for the day... :roll:

We generally eat breakfast quite late, I guess it could be called brunch. So we normally take a couple snacks with us on when we start the afternoon drive and that see's us through to Dinner. In extreme cases we might get a take away some where and we always keep a tin or two of Tuna in our foodbox
