I am handling food for the Baronial Party and Court at Pennsic this year, being held at Aethelmearc Royal on Middle Sunday from 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm! (Surely you’ve seen posts about it *somewhere*…)
Following Baronial Court (starting between 2:00 and 2:15), we will be serving light fare, featuring the ever-popular Walking Tacos, available in your choice of Fritos (which are gluten-free) or nacho cheese Doritos, as well as your choice of toppings (all of which should be gluten-free). (I am also considering a vegetarian option to the taco meat; more on that to come.)
The Brewers’ Guild will be providing various libations from brewers across the Debatable Lands, and ice water and lemonade will also be available. There will also be fruit and vegetable trays, chips and salsa, and an authentic Debatable Lands Cookie Table – this last item is the main reason for this post.
PLEASE BRING COOKIES FOR THE COOKIE TABLE! If you have shelf-stable or pre-packaged cookies, you can drop them off at the Debatable Lands camp (N10) anytime during Peace Week prior to noon on Middle Sunday. Homemade cookies and the like can be dropped at AE Royal between 12:00 pm and 2:00 pm on Sunday. We have attendees with allergy considerations, so please do not bring cookies with peanuts or peanut butter, please mark any homemade cookies with potential allergen information, and gluten-free cookies are always welcome.
Congratulations to Lord Ronan O’Conaill, Our new Baronial Archery Champion! Congratulations to Lord Godzimir the Golden who has agreed to stand as his Second. Our thanks to Baroness Anastasie de Lamoure who stepped down as champion and created a very fun and challenging range to test the skill of those who would be champion!
Cheers, Brandubh et Hilderun In Levitate et Caritate
