This coming Friday, 7 April 2017 at 6:00 p.m. is First Friday!
What is First Friday? I’m glad that you asked. It’s an opportunity to socialize, for the most part. We have a loose framework of hanging out and enjoying/talking about Medieval food and an unofficial fighter practice. You don’t like to cook, but you like food? Come and eat. You like to watch fighting but don’t like to fight, then you should come to watch fighting.
So, bring a medieval dish to share, print out or write up your recipe and tell us a little bit about what you find interesting about the dish, or what you enjoy about the dish. Tell us a little bit about your experience making it and we’ll eat and hang out. With Ice Dragon being the next day, if you’re traveling in the morning, my oven/stove are open to you. If you want some help with your documentation, bring it.
If you’re unfamiliar with medieval cooking and need some direction, here are a couple of useful links for beginner recipes that you can try:
Godecookery – “A Boke of Good Cookery”
Medievalcookery – “Medieval Recipes”
With the weather getting nicer, I am considering doing some outdoor cooking (we have a fire pit for just such purposes) and wanted to see if there was any interest from other people. We’d probably do that for June, unless the weather is super dry between now and the end of the month.
If you aren’t much into cooking, but totally into eating, you should come, too.
For those of you who aren’t so much into cooking, but are into Heavy Weapons, there will be some unofficial practicing taking place. Bring your armor and have some fun.
Parking on our property is limited, however, the near side of the parking lot next to our property is available to you for parking. There is no sidewalk, so we recommend dropping your passengers/armor off at the house and then parking next door.
To help us anticipate how many people will be coming, please either RSVP via email (jenn.strobel(at)gmail(dot)com) or by indicating that you are attending at the facebook event.
