First post of the New Year – a friend’s gift!

Our friends Brian & Lori came for a week vacation of sun and heat to get away from the ice, snow and cold of Ottawa. In an expression of their appreciation, they gave us a lovely Westfalia card and a fantastic little recipe book – “Favourite VW Camper Recipes”. A book compiled by Simon Haseltine and illustrated with nostalgic photographs.

The card that was given along with the Booklet. The image was painted in watercolour by Emma Ball –


The first recipe I chose – it simply just sounded good!

Another sausage dish but in stew form. This would work well on our BBQ.

Another great image.

Beets are a favourite so will definitely be trying this recipe.

Love the sideburns on the man retrieving the wine for dinner.
