    Thanks for the update. Looking forward to the mac and cheese. I presume you will need some oven time.

    Plan B: Beth from Green Acres explained that the sorrel has been completely picked over in the last few weeks, and although it'll be back again soon, it won't be in time for me to make the sorrel ice cream this weekend. So, staying local with Greean Acres Farm produce, I'll instead go with a tried and true recipe that I made a few weeks ago: Peppermint/ Red Fire Chip ice cream. Recipe to follow shortly.

    I haven't figured out how to post recipes, but once I do, I plan on bringing a yogurt panna cotta. (And I'm bringing two guests!)


    I think with El Panzone's cancellation and stevez coming solo, we can squeeze you in. Plus, I really like panna cotta! As Cathy2 stated, your guests will also need to contribute something to the eating. Bread?

    Oven/Stove Needs:
    These are the people who have claimed oven/stove time:
    aschie - oven (low)
    figmolly - stovetop
    gastro gnome - stovetop
    LAZ - oven
    ronnie suburban - oven
    stevez - oven
    Giovanna - stove (plenty of room)
    Mhays - oven
    nr706 - oven?
    Cynthia - oven?

    These are people I assumme will need some time, please let me know which method:
    Ann F.
    helen

    If I missed anyone, please let me know. As is, we should have plenty of room as long as we can agree on a 350 oven temp (we have two so we could do two different temps).

    I always bring more food that I say I'm going to, so I'll bring something(s) beyond the aforementioned meatballs. But in addition to that, I'll also bring some leftover containers for everyone to use after the event. That should cover me and my 2 barnacles. :lol:

    Mine is a braise, which I plan to make and keep in my oven in West Town prior to the event, and it will be out of the oven only during the time it will take me to get to Pilsen (10 minutes). If it's not served immediately (which it likely won't be), then I will need oven time. I prefer a lower temp just to keep it warm, but 350 will do as well.

    Thanks, guys. Unfortunately, I have lots of stuff going on later this week, so really need to get the ice cream started before Saturday. I saw lots of sorrel last week, and was overly optimistic in counting on it being available today at Green City. Oh well, the fresh mint was beautiful, so we'll go with that. Maybe sorrel ice cream for the picnic.

    I was going to go the stovetop route rather than the baking route unless the day is quite cool; since I'm planning to be early-ish to help set up, I think I'll let the beans simmer slowly on the stove-top [in a dutch oven] once I get there. Or, if there's more room in the oven, I'll put 'em in there. YOU tell ME which is going to work better for the FIGs. Me and the dutch oven - we're flexible.

    I'm going pop shopping for this event tomorrow or Friday. I plan to get a good assortment, with a special nod to Coke Classic as requested by Cathy2 and LAZ.

    In appreciation for all of the thought and hard work being put into this event by others, I'd be happy :D to accommodate any other requests with regard to preferences and/or dietary requirements, eg, diet, non-caffeinated, non-cola, etc. Just let me know!

    LTH,

    My shipment of Moose Nose, ordered from Moose, Mallard and Mountain in Fairbanks, is not going to arrive in time for the Potluck, so, after a telephonic consultation with Cathy2, Ellen and I will be bringing Crrush's DYI Cancha and Bridgestone's Laxpudding.

    See you all Sunday.

    Yes, indeed, I will take a bit of oven time for the meatloaf (the beans will come in a crock-pot and could use an electrical outlet but the crock should hold the heat just fine on its own) I will par-cook it, and bring it in a cooler, so I shouldn't need a lot of time. I will bring the masala sauce in a thermos, so that should cover me.

    The 'spouse and I will be happy to help with cleanup - I don't know that we'll be there early: we have sitter arrangements, etc. - but if we are, feel free to put us to work then as well! :D

    Ronnie, should I also bring some leftover containers, or do you think you've got us covered? And G - I fully expect to be invited for moose nose when the occasion arises. :D :twisted: I told Sparky we'd be eating Kangaroo and Moose while he's on his sleepover, and now am faced with recanting.

    MHays,

    Tell Sparky there will be a raccoon cooked at the picnic this year. That might help keep his friends on their toes.

    You may as well bring extra containers, because one just never knows.

    Helen's rice maker has the capacity to make 10 cups rice in 30 minutes. She may have a 2nd rice maker of the same capacity, though she wasn't 100% sure. If she doesn't or cannot find it, then she can make one batch and keep it warm while making the 2nd.

    Regards,
    Cathy2

    I will be baking the casserole before coming, so it should still be fairly warm -- though it will be about an hour drive. So perhaps a few minutes in the oven or on the stove to warm it up.

    I wrap the casserole in foil, then several bath towels. Alternatively, if your casserole can fit into the cooler, then preheat the cooler with hot water. Remove the hot water, towel dry, then lay your wrapped casserole in there. Any air spaces fill with crumpled newspaper. I have been very impressed how long a cooler once properly heated can keep food warm.

    I'll be bringing the kangaroo in an electric roaster, which retains heat pretty well ... an oven might be nice to heat it up a bit, but an electrical outlet might work just as well, if you're short of oven space.

    I just counted my stash and I have at least 70 foam, clamshell-type containers, so I think that should cover us.

    In addition to the meatballs and the leftover containers, it looks like I'll be bringing some sort of dip (probably cold) because my son wants to help make something. We haven't decided yet if we'll be making one of our recipes or someone else's but I'll post either way, once we decide. I'll probably also bring some bubbly water. There may be more . . . not sure yet 8)

    I won't need a stove for the sandwiches if I make it - I can toast and assemble in advance and bring under foil. They're tasty at room temperature as well. I promised LAZ and Cathy to post ASAP if this work event which is taking place simultaneously on Sunday is going to prevent my timely arrival at FIG, especially since we're in waitlist territory. I'll update tomorrow with final word.

    I don't think we'll have a problem accomodating Eaterlover's other guest - I don't want to leave one of the party out.

    Based on my updated oven/stove schedule it looks like things will work well. We can keep one oven at 350-375 and the other at a warming temp (250) and fit everyone in.

    In addition to the mint/red fire chip ice cream, I'll be making a modified version of eatchicago's Pissaladière. Instead of Martha's pizza crust, I'll be making homemade puff pastry (if my air conditioning doesn't break as it usually does when I try to do this. You really can't make puff pastry without AC.), and serving the Pissaladière as mini-tarts. I'll use eatchicago's topping recipe, except along with the onions I'll caramelize some of the beautiful spring fennel that Nichols Farm has been carrying. This will be just fine at room temperature, so no need for oven time.

    Here's the ice cream recipe:

    - Heavy cream and whole milk at a 2:1 ratio (I'm using Traderspoint Creamery milk)
    - 5 fresh, local egg yolks for each quart of liquid
    - 3/4 cup of sugar for each quart of liquid
    - as many fresh peppermint leaves as you can possibly add to the pot, roughly torn
    - 3/4 of a Vosges Chocolate Red Fire bar for each quart of liquid, choppped

    Low-simmer cream, milk, and mint together on the stove covered for about an hour. Turn off flame and let steep for a few hours. Strain, being sure to press hard on the leaves to extract every bit of oils and flavors. Return to stove.

    Beat egg yolks until pale. Temper the yolks by adding a little warm cream at a time, then pour yolks into the pot and combine well. Heat this custard slowly, stirring constantly, until it coats the back of a spoon. Strain again, just in case you were drinking and rushed the egg tempering, in which case you may have little bits of scrambled yolk to get rid of. (ahem, not that this has ever happened to me)

    Chill the custard until cold, then process in ice cream machine per manufacturer's directions. A minute or two before the churning is done, add the red fire chips.

    Yes! I barely squeaked in! I am planning on bringing a simple Panna Cotta, but I haven't figured out the sauce yet (hopefully, I'll be blinded by inspiration on Sunday). I believe I can coerce my guest into bringing some cups or plates. (whatever is needed)

    My Panna Cotta Recipe

    1 1/2 cups of yogurt
    1 cup of cream
    2 tsp of gelatin
    1/4 cup of sugar

    *sprinkle gelatin in 1/4 cup of lukewarm water
    *bring cream and sugar to simmer, dissolve sugar
    * add gelatin mixture until dissolved
    * add yogurt
