Biscuit tin baking

So, what do you do when you plan an evening cooking with the Guides, only to be asked to vacate the church hall in order that the church can interview potential staff? Use one of the other outbuildings in the church, naturally. But then what do you do when other church people ask you very nicely if you'd mind actually not using that one either, as they need to set up for a special lunch the following day?

You could cancel Guides. Or change the programme, meet elsewhere, go for a hike, be flexible.

Or, you could just carry on regardless, swapping the kitchen for the carpark and the ovens for a handful of biscuit tins.

Hurrah for Camp Doughnuts!Butter the outside of two slices of bread, slap a load of jam in the middle, and wrap in foil.
Toss onto a fire. Extract somewhere after this point and before incineration is reached.
Dip in a plate of sugar (but we forgot this bit, don't tell the Guides).

Enjoy. Eat. Pick the burnt bits of and burn them further. Burn your fingertips on hot tinfoil, scrape your knees on gravel, beg for another one, negotiate for a flaming marshmallow, drink cold fresh water by the pint, leap walls into the field at the back to gather more sticks, then finally dowse the embers, bury the remains, gather up the rubbish, and leave a neatly sluiced carpark.
