e. none of the above

I have always enjoyed the variety that comes if you allow the hosts of each rally set and communicate the tone. Sometimes it'll be more casual with burgers & tube-steaks, other times it'll be BBQ cook-off, a potluck, hobo stew or chili-dump, roast pig, BYOMeat to grill or a dinner catered in or out at a restaurant.

Keeps things from always being the same and members/rallies from getting in a rut IMO. It lets the hosts step up and do what they want, everybody gets their turn and variety is the spice of life!

Shari

Janet can you come to the women's rally and coordinate us for cooking and eating?? Now I read the Beverly Beach rally info and drool it sounds like such a cool menu. Oh why oh why is it so far from Michigan...
Paella, oh maybe its not that far...

What a nice thread. I love eating all the marvelous dishes at a potluck, I do like to send my husband up for seconds for me though After all these cooks worked hard. Of the two forum rallies we've been to the food has been awesome. And like Shari said, the variety is great.

I don't have one of those mini torches either...I use my Mapp Gas torch from the shop same one I use for sweating copper fitting together or silver soldering HVAC lines nothing like a multi purpose tool.

Muddy Hollow,
To answer your PM... (clean out your inbox it's full)

On Mexican Food:

My favorite Mexican Cookbooks are

Diana Kennedy The Cuisines of Mexico.
It is very well written and simple to follow. She is an American that has spent most of her life in Mexico and has written several cookbooks. The fun part is you learn a lot about the history behind Mexican cooking. Her bean and Mexican rice recipe is perfect. Follow it to a T and your friends will wonder how you learned to cook.
Another great resource is author Rick Bayliss he has written several must have Mexican cookbooks. This is a great starting point.
Happy eating and travels,

And like Shari said, the variety is great.
Speaking of women's rallies & spice of life...before we had our Airstream, I would go tent-camping with a bunch of girls a couple of times a year. We called those campouts our "Gucci Campouts". Girls only and we took all the things our men said "you cant' take that camping!" Things like china, silver, crystal, linens and candlesticks - the whole nine yards! We ate at the picnic tables in rustic campgrounds with the 5 star restaurant menus - Mimosa's & waffles for breakfast and champagne, caviar, lobster thermadore, cheesecake for dinner. And then tucked ourselves in with our down comforters in our "Tent Majal" (huge tent - three rooms) which I still have.

I've suggested to this same group of friends, that we ought to do this now and I'll Bring Maxwell to make the preparations a little easier...but all our lives have gotten more complicated with age, maybe next year.

This past summer, another group of five girl-friends, all with Airstreams did manage to go out for a girls-only weekend out, which was wonderful as it was a first time w/o "the boys" for three of the women along. Great fun, but we didn't do the "Gucci-thing"...just martini's and miniture golf!

Shari
If it's worth doing, it's worth over-doing!

Smile Shari you are needed for the women's rally!!

Mimosas and waffles, ooh!!
Oh now see we need more of this sort of thing for the women's rally! I love the 'Gucci Campout' idea. How cool...it is the hardest thing scheduling though so people can get together.

As others have said in this thread, we are lucky with our Airstreams that we can do so much more than hot dogs and hamburgers, not to knock burgers and dogs, but it is fun to be able to do a lot more with the Airstream!!!

We did do hot dogs at a recent impromtu rally.

Folks chipped in and brought dogs and a side dish.... it was interesting. We ended up with 3 kinds of hand made brats, several flavors of yuppie wursts including some with added apple, fennel and some notable smoked salmon wursts, foot long kosher dogs, as well as a selection of smoked link things that were made by someone named Franz.

Sides included tater salad made with yukon golds, spicy pickled asparagus spears, handmade kraut, fresh peach cobbler and some yummy lemon bars.

I guess even when it's "just hot dogs" the NW forums crowd does it up! And why not - after all, we need extra energy to tote all the heavy bottles of merlot needed to wash all that food down!

Thank God for your saying this... too many carbs at all these things. We end up abandoning some of the meals and thereby missing the social parts of a rally because we are low-carbers.

One other thing -- these meals seem to be preceded by prayer -- in the name of Jesus or of Christ.

I'm a Christian and an experienced preacher, a churchman and church trustee. However, I'm very uncomfortable with prayer in a public setting directed to one God. We shouldn't be imposing beliefs on the gathering of a WBCCI group. Lighten up the prayer, folks.

"Dear God: thank you for these people, these gifts, this food," something like that. Let's all be thankful together but also for our differences.


Tom

We "try" to have a lo Carb appetizer as well for Happy hour. Some times it’s tough to be good eh? The wife is VERY creative and we do our own thing sometimes as well.
A favorite is a Stuffed Jalapeño pepper, Cream Cheese and ground pork stuffing wrapped in bacon.
