Neither Wind nor Rain....can stop a Dutch Oven dinner

Now that the Rally is history, there is a little time to reflect on it and to remember the fun things that we enjoyed!!!

A highlight was the Dutch Oven Dinner that Bob and Barb planned for our group. They first introduced us to this fun way of cooking two years ago at Darlington, but we've never really done it the correct they got the pots all stacked up with the appropriate amount of coals on each pot.....

.....there was a Pineapple Upside Down Cake in one pot....a pot with Baked Potato with a delectible Chocolate Molten Cake.........

.....and one with a big pot of Donna's Texas Chilli........

...and, there were many other mouth watering dishes to go along with these treats!

The Dutch Ovens are ready to be opened and served!

There had been rain on and off all day, but that did not deter our cooks...or our eaters!!! A couple of the guys decided that they "needed" some of those pop-up after a trip to Wal-Mart, we had a couple of those and a screen tent to cook in..... we marched on despite the weather!! Mother Nature actually co-operated with us and the rain cleared off and the breeze died down for about two hours while everyone devoured the feast out of the Dutch Ovens!

Cooking in the Dutch Ovens, with the coals carefully placed under and on top of the kettles is an interesting and delicious science!! Barb and Bob tutored us as they cooked, then served up a mouth watering main course of Chilli, Potatoes, Spoon Bread and more....and topped it off with that hot molten chocolate cake with ice cream AND a hot Pineapple Upside Down cake that Dee and Paul created. That old cliche, "It doesn't get any better than this" is very appropriate here....because it just doesn't!!!

Thanks to Barb and Bob for the Dutch Oven cooking night!!!

Looks great, but I am afraid I would dump all those coals in my food. LOL
