So.... this was originally made for Tampa Turtle and his scouts who asked to make contact with us. I've put together a bit of a video of what a typical scout night looks like for us this side of the pond complete with all the mess, all the noise, all the things that didn't go according to plan. A long way from perfect but a lot of fun!
The background is that when we were planning the term the PLs said they wanted the annual remembrance night to be themed on rationing. The original idea was for it to be based on what rationing here was like in the 1940s but this morphed into bringing up to date and doing a cook off based on typical rations distributed at refugee camps in Syria. Basically rice, lentils, flour, cooking oil, kidney beans, chick peas and tinned fish.
This is how it went! Enjoy
