TOWN Members Spring Picnic and Dessert Cook-Off

Let's get together at Memorial Park before the Houston Heat comes in! We'll get together over on the Picnic Loop by where the bicycle trail runs (where we met the last time we went to Memorial Park). This will be a good time to come on out and meet some of the other TOWN members.

Your paid dues will supply the burgers and fajitas for grilling... and the charcoal. We'll "potluck" the condiments and any side items to go with the meal. (Please state what you'll be bringing when you RSVP).

And, for dessert, we are going to have a "Dessert Camp Cooking Cook-Off"!!! Yes, there will be a prize for the winners (HMMMM?!).
If you'd like to join in the cook-off, just bring your necessary ingredients/items and make the dessert out there in the Park. We'll all learn from each other how to get it done while camping! You can use any method you'd like... foil wrapping, dutch oven, cutting and stacking, mixing it all together, whatever! We'll grab a couple of people from the Park to be our judges when the time comes! ;-)

For those interested, Available activities in the area:
Hiking the Walking Loop
Bicycling
Visit the Houston Arboretum
Relaxing

    We had a terrific time visiting and getting to know each other better; food was plentiful and delicious (thanks to all the ladies!), and we even started a campfire later in the evening. Didn't leave the Park until about 8:00 PM! A great big THANKS to all of you terrific ladies for making it a great day!!!

    Also, I've had a couple of emails asking if husbands or families can come ... Short answer is NO. This event is only for the TOWN members. Sorry...

    Ladies, There will be a bag of charcoal available for y'all to use for your desserts, if needed. But, y'all will have to start your own coals for the competition.
    See y'all in the morning!

    Is there something specific we need? Condiments for burgers? I'll be coming from a hike, instead of from my kitchen, so instead of a side, how 'bout condiments and chips and dip?

    April 15, 2013

    • Sophie

      Already have them. How about some mustard or mayo instead?

    BTW, Ladies... Bring yourself a comfortable chair to sit in because those picnic tables feel pretty hard after a while.
