One of the first things I tend to consume outdoors each year is a cup of tea or coffee. It doesn't seem like a big deal but the reasons for it are usually based on effort. Let me explain...I'll wait while you make tea...ready? OK .. at the start of spring my Dear Husband and I look upon the garden with some despair and have to venture out to do some post winter tidying. This year it involved some rotten tree stump removal, some apple tree branches sawn off, a mow of the lawn, moving the trampoline and clearing of the odd dead plant. This took the best part of an afternoon and afterwards the Darling Daughter made us both a cup of tea, perfect to sit back on the newly cleared bench and sip tea in the spring sunshine while listening to the birdsong.

One thing that I haven't been doing is taking a flask when we go out on country walks. I used to but we broke a couple which meant we gave up for a while. I have tried an all metal flask but I never really felt it worked as well as the glass one. I'm thinking of getting another flask and having another go at a hot drink while out on a walk, especially after the first spring walk we went on this year, while sunny, was a bit nippy!
So this week's Outdoor Food on Friday is a nice hot beverage, tea or coffee, fresh from the kelly kettle if camping or from a flask if out walking (and here's a thing, I don't add milk to tea or coffee in a flask - I think it affects the taste, I'd like to know what you think on that and what you do)
