Fantabulous time away with the young people at Quinta Hall up in Shropshire. We went to Holy Communion at the cathedral at Chester on Sunday and went to the beach at Prestatyn on Monday (with mini golf, sandcastle competition and fish & chip supper!). On Tuesday we send the young people on a treasure hunt round Oswestry then got them cooking for masterchef. Wednesday saw us enjoying a swim at Wrexham in the morning (including funky slide, jacuzzi and one of those weird tidal pool thingies) and then tree-climbing and doing archery with Aiden and Luke from the fantastic Adventure Plus all rounded off with a stoningly tasty roast chicken dinner. On Thursday we continued with Fencing and a low ropes course (including a game of Wah on the low ropes - yes I think we were mad!). Friday was a marvellously chilled out day on a canal boat going of the Pontcysyllte viaduct which is pretty amazing.
Alongside all this we looked at the book of Genesis, touching on issues of sin, meeting with God, families and using our gifts. There was also plenty of time for some great games of Kubb, Wah, the foot Game, Tom's game, shops, Mafia, 1-2-3, Monkey, boppit, Chinese cricket and the occasional few hours of sleep!
We had some great food and I did promise to put up two recipes - both chocolate coincidentally!
So recipes for tiffin & Chocolate puddle pudding following...
