Worth the wait

food-line.jpgA definite highlight of each year’s Palousey Trail Ride is the Dutch oven dinner. George Hatley is considered the cook wrangler, offering advice and a few specific orders to volunteers who bring a wide variety of good stuff. There’s something extra special about biscuits baked in a Dutch oven. George says the most common mistake is made when folks apply too much heat to the bottom and not enough to the top. All I know is that if George is watching, the cooks pay attention.

Before I try to make a contribution, more practice is necessary, but even the mistakes taste pretty good.
