Owners names: oops forgot to ask

Some Sliced Cheese Sprilli Chinkles (chilli sprinkles) variations - you could add sibies, Worcester sauce

Method: 1. Place 2 slices of bread under the grill and toast until lightly brown. 2. Turn over and place sliced cheese on bread and sprinkle with chilli sprinkles (optional) and place under grill until cheese has melted. 3. Take out and cut into triangles. Repeat with other 2 slices of bread and serve to your friends (you might need more bread if you have more friends in the van!) For different flavours try replacing the chilli sprinkles with sibies or Worcester sauce.

Balhomais Farm, Aberfeldy The weather was good (we had a lot of sun) but very windy, so I don’t know if we had a tan or wind burn. We had our usual on field entertainment, in the Pheasants Rest. Thanks to Frank one of our visitors, we had a great evening with a musical quiz that he organized. We were all surprized that we could name that tune (50,60,70 & soaps) oops just let the cat out of the bag, we are all recycled teenagers. The ceilidh was a big hit. Alan Small (Accordionist) put us through our paces, showing us the dance steps again, as we had been to bed since last year. A big thanks to him for making it a fantastic evening. We did have a surprise visitor on the first week end. Jennifer Cook and she brought her dad. The last time she was at Aberfeldy was to see her dad compete in the Miss Aberfeldy competition, sorry he didn’t win. But Jennifer had a good time hanging out with the girls. I would like to thank the boys that came up to Aberfeldy (Phil, Jonnie, George) to give us a help to get the field ready for the opening on Friday. Steve & I would like to say a big thank you to the guys (Liz, Tom, Irene, Ian, Sandy) on the work party. I would not be able to run Aberfeldy without them. Enjoy the rest of the season until next year at Aberfeldy. Happy Caravanning Nancy
