Caribbean au gratin casserole. (As a sub-highlight I would also mention that we used the last of our squash harvested in October 2011 in the dish instead of sweet potatoes as well as some of our garden fresh spinach. It is a tradition of ours to bring as much homegrown food to LYME as possible as it seems only fitting.) The presenter had a larger solar oven that he was using to bake cookies. He also went over a number of styles including a mason jar cooker perfect for beans and rice that Matt wants to try out sometime.
|I made this cape (and nine others) for a different music festival. Now that I have the dancing cloak we hardly use them so I gave them to my friend Hannah to share with her crew as they really were into dressing up in costume. I kept running into people wearing my capes and it made me really happy to see them in use again.|
