[PLEASE forward to your friends who are not on the Cynnabar lists -- but plan to
attend Pennsic this year!]
Just a reminder that we are holding a 'potluck dinner' in camp before drunken
court at Pennsic. This will start about 5:30 pm on Wednesday of War week (8/11).
The theme is "Cynnabar Thanksgiving" -- but anything you feel like contributing
would be just fabulous! AND -- there will be a prize awarded in court for the
most creative or delicious dish for the potluck.
As I mentioned before I thought I would post some ideas on easy cooking in camp.
There many ways to be inspired about preparing a dish for this event without
having to 'cook-cook' at War!
Consider canned options that just need to be heated:
Yams, other vegetables, chili, stews, fruits
Consider boxed items that just require water or minimal cooking:
Rice, stuffing mixes, potato mixes, pasta
There are also many other 'meals in a box' that are now available at grocery
stores or Trader Joe's (if they are local to you). Most require simple
ingredients (like water or a can of tomatoes) and only basic cooking
requirements (boil, saute, or just heat). I found a great curry dish by Archer
Farm's from Target that I'd recommended!
Are you a 'planner'?
Cook ahead any regular dish you make at home. Many will freeze or tolerate
canning. Stews, chilis, other meats or main entrees should last if frozen until
Wednesday (if you are coming middle weekend) in your cooler. Just reheat lightly
Go to the fruit/vegetable stand -- there's one ON SITE at Pennsic for those that
Pre-cut fruit and veggies are available there -- another no cook option! Bag
salads -- open and toss!
Go to the camp store, there's one of these as well:
chips, pop, chocolate milk! There's lots of things that can be contributed
Of course -- if you like to cook in camp -- that's encouraged, too, naturally.
Remember there's the open fire and the cook's tent. Keep in mind your timing. We
do only have one stove.
Again, we like everyone to be able to participate! It'll be great to share a
meal and encouarge all to be together at least one night to enjoy each other's
company -- but want to be sure this isn't too difficult for those who don't cook
Any questions or concerns -- please email us or ask!
Thanks much -- and see you all at War!
