If you know me well enough, you would know that I love nibbling on sour things and vietnamese style pickles are my absolute favourite! But the issue was, I have no idea how to pickle it myself (failed before) and store bought ones weren't really up to par... Until I found these ones at @paddysmarketsflemington 🙌🙌🙌🙌🙌🙌 And not exaggerating my excitement because I am almost out even though I just got 2 tubs on Sat 🙈

CAMP CHALLENGE 2k17: I go on Year 10 Camp every year because it’s a wonderful way to end the school year as you get to connect on a much deeper level with students. Last year was absolutely re-energising and made a very challenging year absolutely wonderful.
I found it quite irritating being told that the camp couldn’t cater for me as a vegan – but now I enjoy it because it gives me a challenge to see how #zerowaste I can get my prep!
1. Having to match each meal planned by the camp as close as possible due to the limited facilities at each campsite (ie. Making sure I have something I can ‘grill’ instead of heat on a stove if the dinner is a BBQ) 2. The camp is ‘nut free’ so I’m limited with snack options that I can just throw in my backpack 3. One of the meals is for a campsite where we only have access to boiling water and ration packs (the students get dehydrated meals) 4. The packaging needs to be durable enough to sit in a freezer, then in an esky for 4 hours while the food gets delivered to each site. 5. The campsites do not have recycling facilities, so anything I throw away will go to landfill Last year I reused a lot of zip lock plastic bags, scrunched them up into my bag and took them home – but this year I have none cos I stopped buying packaged food – so packaging my food for freezing was… interesting. This year I put all of my ‘grilled food’ like Frys (their burgers and schnitzels just come in cardboard!) and homemade sausages in the paper bags I purchased my dry goods in - just scrunch into my bag to compost later! Produce bags from @thesourcelanecove made excellent snack bags.
My two 'dehydrated' meals are couscous with some herbs and tvp, and muesli - thrown in an old raisin packet 🤣
And my wet meals (curry, beans, nacho mix, spaghetti) went into some glass jars – which I will collect at the end of the camp to #reuse
Flour: a bulk bag I purchased and keep in the freezer. Olives: BYO jar to Flemington markets Rosemary: from my garden! Oil: from a jar of homemade marinaded semi dried tomatoes Yeast: a jar I bought years ago and keep in the freezer. Once I find a package free yeast I'll #reuse the jar
