a simple meal for 50+ peoples.
it's that time of year when all good
girls and boys who own
vintage boles aero trailers
gather together in one spot for
four days to fellowship, dine,
sit around the bonfire morning
and night, sleep, tour trailers, have a
peek & pay at trailer yard sales,
tour a vintage trailer museum
like none other, and generally
have a wonderful time ..
the rally isn't until about a month
away but that doesn't mean
planning isn't in full swing.
oh wow - - full swing indeed.
you see, i'm the organizer
of the event. and a tad busy.
all meals are provided save for
the first night of sharing appetizers
and lunches. but breakfasts and
one night is devoted to
chili & cornbread & a harvest salad.
the chili & cornbread are prepared
and currently cooling. once cooled
i'll package and freeze.
i used my humongo
roaster to make the chili.
i sampled a couple three
okay five ... tastes ... and it
meets with my approval.
smoke & spice (just enough heat)..
eight pans of cornbread should about do it ..
that'll equal 72 servings and since most
everyone loves cornbread, there will be
some extra to finish off.
what's not to love? ♥
the salad will be dark leafy greens, pepitas, dates, raisins, and a dressing that's out of this world ::
. . . . . . . .. . . . . . . .. . . . . .
and that's just one night. wait til you hear about the other nights, and the breakfasts.. ♥
there are 2 other chefs in the mix.. what
they bring to the table will knock your socks off.
or at the very least make you swOon and smile.
