This is the second of a 3 part series! The first was a blast and the food was out of this world. Using your culinary creativity, you'll be whipping up something special (can be complex or simple) in your cast iron cookware (or a borrowed piece) and sharing with the group. Plan for 20 Vegas Hikers to sample your lunch cuisine. Doesn't need to be an enormous amount since everyone will be sharing. Any leftovers, we'll devour through the evening. Everyone is on their own for the rest of the meals, but as many of you know, Vegas Hikers are a pretty communal group when it comes to food, and sharing is caring:-) If you are new to camping, this is a great opportunity to get your feet wet, as there is an Albertson's shopping center just 10 minutes away! Too lazy to make your own cup of coffee in the morning, drive 5 minutes to Dunkin Doughnuts! You get the point, this is glamping at its best. There is a fire pit, and any donated firewood bundles would be greatly appreciated. No large pieces permitted. The bundles sold at grocery stores are a safe bet. There are also bbqs, picnic tables, and a large awning (great for hanging hammocks as well). We will plan on eating our international cuisine at ***1pm on Saturday***. If you've never used or setup your camping gear, no worries, we'll be there to help.
You are responsible for bringing any needed cooking items such as cast iron cookware, utensils, coals, ingredients, etc. You are the chef!
Don't have any Cast Iron Cookware of your own? No worries, borrow a piece from a friend, post in the comments that you need to borrow one, or purchase your own treasure.
Not only does Cast Iron Cookware last forever, it's also healthy to cook with.
Don't forget to bring your basic camping gear. If this is your first time camping, feel free to ask questions in the reply section below. We'll be happy to help you:-)
We will have corn hole boards, fribee, cards, etc. for game play. If you have something in particular you'd like to play, bring it. Cast Iron Cook/Campout - (Part III) Featuring Dinner from Around the World will be held on a future date.
A $10 donation to help with site fees is not necessary, but greatly appreciated:-)
