IAGG Food

Postby Bill Edmundson » Thu Jul 18, 2013 8:27 pm

You may want to do food as a separate thread. It helps to separate topics. Maybe, someone will follow food and someone else will track who's coming.

It gets to be a lot for one person to keep their head around. Particularly if you are trying to work on a boat.

Thanks Bill.

Copied from original Post:

It would seem most are trying to arrive on the Friday, but being our first gathering I think it probably best if see how things go. A possible agenda for Saturday might be a meet and check it out Saturday morning, after lunch run up the Hastings River where people can put on a bit more speed and a Saturday night BBQ followed by a Sunday Morning fry-up. (Other meals maybe people can make their own arrangements. There are cooking and dining facilities on the wharf.
I am prepared to do the shopping on the Saturday morning for the BBQ and Sunday sick parade of bacon & eggs etc and people can chip in to pay me back or not.
These are only suggestions to get things rolling

PS Make a posting to let us know if you are coming or not so we can up-date the list and any suggestion as to the formate of the gathering will be great!

Location: Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia. Building Gentry. I'd be happy to supply some mince for burgers on the bbq, might prepare them at home just need to know how much to get. Only question I have is whether there will be a bbq available or should I see if I can bring one in case.
Would then need:
Buns
Lettuce
Butter
Beetroot
Sauce
Napkins
Plates

Other items might include steak or sausages and some salads.
I'd be up for making pancakes on Sunday possibly as well. Should be able to supply eggs, milk, flour for that. Might need maple syrup, butter, sugar I guess.

I don't know if "Skippy Steaks" is a joke. I think that is Roo. But, I willing.

Do you like Boiler Peanuts? We may send some.

Yeah, its Roo... We must be about the only country that actually eats its National icon. :oops: I don't have the heart to try it, but I gather it is quite nice and very lean. I am not a seafood person but prawns is another local delicacy some may like to have while here. Our burgers are different to the ones I tasted when over your end of the world. We tend to have a nice big fat meat patty but then pile as much salad in there as it will stand without falling over and slap on lots of tomato or barbecue sauce so it runs down the sides of your mouth and all over your hands.

BTW, in my experience Australian drivers aren't as polite a USA drivers, get ready for that when you drive here.

Time to get semi serious. So it looks like about 30 people to cater for.
Dinner Friday night - Suit yourself, get together for a chat and bevvie or two but clear heads needed next day for boat skills :roll:
Breakfast Saturday morning - Maybe meet at a local café those who are interested before manning the boats
Lunch Saturday - In town at local establishment (boats will be at Marina???)
Dinner Saturday - BBQ -Burgers, (Track will bring patties and buns), Tony to shop for other bits and pieces. Track might make a chocolate cake if time permits.
Breakfast Sunday - Fry-up, maybe pancakes. Orange juice, coffee? Could do with coffee perc....
Lunch Sunday - each to his own for the trip home

Main issue is we don't know what facilities availability might be like with other groups around. Tables? Chairs? BBQ's? Refrigeration?
Tony is going shopping Saturday for sundries, liaise with him for anything you might think beneficial.

I don't think we have the necessary time to make a Wombat tender...
Reminds me of a NZ recipe for Pukeko. Place the Pukeko in a pot. Add onions, seasoning, garlic and an old leather boot. Simmer continuously for a week, then throw away the Pukeko and eat the boot as it will still be more tender than Pukeko. :lol:
