Club des Plaisirs Gourmands 25 Aug 2010

Food club again tonight!  Our theme this week was “breakfast for dinner.”  The weather was beautiful today, so we ended up eating outside.

Some of the foods we had were bread pudding, coffee cake, gelato (is this breakfast food?), homemade donuts, non-homemade donut holes, berry bread and banana bread, biscuits and homemade chocolate gravy (or jelly if you preferred), scrambled eggs with fresh roma tomatoes and cheese, and cereal bars.  I am probably forgetting some things, but that’s what I remember off the top of my head.  Apparently I mostly attend these things when we’re having particularly sugary foods (odd since in general I prefer savory food).

I had a ton of fun.  I met a couple new people, and saw friends with whom I spend less time than I’d like.  Due to the temperature, there were few issues with bugs.  A few moths visited the table, though, especially when we brought out the lamp.  We needed the lamp because we stayed out chatting and eating until after it was dark.

I think next week we’re going to try raw foods.  I want to try this recipe, but I’m going to try to find out if it will be fine if I substitute non-coconut oils and flours because I think someone in the group is allergic to coconut stuff.  Food night is a fun way to break up the week, and a bigger incentive to cook (rather than just microwaving some food/leftovers).  Yummy fun!

    No pancakes or waffles?!

    Wow, that sounds like one heck of a meal. Too bad they’d look down on just showing up and eating without contributing.

    @Paul You know, I didn’t even think about that until you said something…

    @Tanner While it is preferred that you bring food (if you plan to partake in the food), it is not a requirement, just fun hang-out time. You should drive three hours just to come 😛

    Tanner, we should have our own meetup, with pancakes and waffles.

    @Katherine Oh noes! You guys will have everything I lack.
