Green Eggs and Ham IV Casita Rally
Gunter Hill COE Campground
Cool temperatures in the mid-thirties and a sunny sky greeted us again this morning at the Gunter Hill Campground in Montgomery, Alabama. As the day progressed, the temperature climbed into the high sixties, making for a very pleasant day to be outside.
We attended a dutch oven cooking demonstration this afternoon at 2:00 p.m. Six Casita Rally members volunteered their time to prepare one of their favorite recipes for the large group of attendees to sample. The recipes were prepared using 8", 10" and 12" cast iron dutch ovens mounted on a variety of stands. The most popular dutch ovens are: Lodge and Camp Chef. The major difference between the two is the Camp Chef has standoffs cast into the outside surface of the lid. The lid can be used as a full size skillet. Simply turn the lid over to cook eggs, bacon or pancakes.
- Black Forest Dump Cake
- Breakfast Casserole
- Buttermilk Biscuits
- Calico Beans
- Italian Sausage, Bacon & Bean Soup
- Pineapple Upside-Down Cake
Everyone in attendance had a chance to sample each of the recipes and appeared to be quite pleased with them. Sharon and I really enjoyed each of the recipes. They were all delicious.
The Finished Product!
At 6:00 p.m. we attended the Community Gumbo. One of the Cassita Rally members prepared a huge pot of gumbo for all to enjoy. It was absolutely delicious.
Gumbo Chef Meister!
The Community Gumbo was followed by music performed by some of the talented members at the rally. A fitting end to the third day of the Green Eggs & Ham IV Casita Rally.
Tomorrow another adventure begins.
