Food for the starving masses...

Unfortunatly my efforts to recrute a master chef for our little outing
have failed miserably. Instead, we will go on the local economy for
Friday nights dinner.
Saturday morning, Richard O'Neill will bring his
bread maker and will have fresh bread and whatever else we can get ahold of.
Saturday night we will prepare a big pot of chili. Not hot with spices
but if you bring your own bottle of pepper sauce you can go all the way
to three alarms.
Sunday morning, bread again.
Sunday night spagetti with meat sauce. Some will argue (without effect)
that the sauce looks strikingly familiar.
Monday morning, bread for the huddeling masses.
If anyone cares to contribute to preparing meals you are more than
welcome. Lunch is open at the moment. Maybe a pile of ham, lunch meat
and bread etc. and a make you own. I am sure we can find a McDonalds
open should we want to forgo the pleasure of making sandwiches.
We will bring some soda but everyone should bring their favorites. We
have a refrigerator and can chill a lot of drinks. We will try to keep a
pot on the stove of hot water and if anyone cares to put on coffee we
will keep that going.
The refrigerator does not have an ice maker so we
will work out of bags of ice. I don't see any point in refilling ice
cube trays a zillion times when bags are available.
We have two bedrooms. Meg (my wife who most of you have not met yet
(N4OGE)) will also be coming down so we will enjoy one of the bedrooms.
The other bedroom has one double bed and some floor space. The living
room has a couch with a fold out bed that is kinda lumpy. Lots of floor
space in the living room for sleeping bags. The floor interfaces to the
unheated air so an air matteris or pad would help especially if it is
Most of the cottages near our are for summer rentals and I do not expect
a lot of them to be occupied. We do have a next door neighbor that stays
all year but they have been known to have loud friends in the late night
so we should not have a problem with any complaints. Don't see how far
we can take it though.
I anyone missed the maps I had on Saturday I will have them Thursday
night at the monthly meeting. Its not hard to find.
