My really KILLER weekend Part 2

Eating well was an underlying theme at the Just Camping weekend. I was honored to cook everyone breakfast all three mornings. We had pork and more pork with potatoes, eggs, pancakes, and french toast made from Deborah's home baked Challa bread.
Steve Klohn, Zoe Baker and I made fresh pizza on Friday night. Fifteen awesome pizzas all baked in Airstream ovens were served.
Now who does not like pizza, especially on a Friday night when movies are being shown?
Some of the ladies got to eat together away from the men folk and the children folk. It was actually nice to see them all relaxed and laughing together. I backed away slowly and let them have their space.
But I must come back to the Happy hour contributions, for they were stelar. Sonia made these falafel pockets. For some this is a meal, but at a WDCU Happy Hour, it is a snack.
Deviled Egg. Who the Hell does not like deviled eggs? Sue, they were some of the best. Could you make this a regular thing?
I don't know who made this. It kind of looks unappetizing in the photo, but WOW!!! The flavor combinations were spectacular.
Sub sandwich anyone?

I don't know who made this one either, but cheese and pepperoni biscuits of some sort were mighty fine.

I hope someone responsible for the Happy Hours at the International in Madison sees this post and the last. Perhaps someone hosting a future rally might also take note. Some important lessons can be learned by comparing "how it was" and "how it could be". To reflect, I want to end this post with a photo of "how it was"

Looks like a feast to me, I'd enjoy the heck out of it without a second thought, and I'd feel honored to contribute something delicious of my own. I'm thinking, BBQ...

Looking forward to making the next campout at Bakers' Acres!

"Devilled Eggs. ... they were some of the best."

The only time I used to get food as great as what Sue & others put out was at church potlucks or wakes. While going through the line, my usual routine was to look left, then right, then eat at least one devilled egg while no one was watching while putting more on my plate.

Apparently, I'm not too good at gobbling unobserved because both my mom & Kim's mom have now started serving the delicacy at family gatherings.

Cousin Ruth, at Thanksgiving, served up an especially tasty version using:

12 eggs
1/2 cup mayo
1 tsp parsley flakes
1/2 tsp chives
1/2 tsp dry mustard
1/2 tsp dill weed
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp paprika
1/8 tsp pepper
1/8 tsp garlic powder
2 tbls milk

[Make it] then garnish with more parsley/paprika.

Talk about good eats!
