If you missed last night’s camp dinner, here’s a few photo highlights of the 500 who came for sloppy joes, BBQ pulled pork sandwiches, fresh veggies, chips and ice cream:
We also have money jars here to collect donations…we suggest $4 per person, but we’ll take whatever you can or want to donate.
We made 5 roasters full of sloppy joes (using McCormick’s sloppy joe mix. Last year I made Jamie Oliver’s recipe for sloppy joes with beans, but I got a lot of feedback saying “don’t bean the sloppy joes!” I’d love to try a new recipe next time since the mix was a little too salty and tomatoey. Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your favorite recipe for sloppy joes, aka “taverns” or “steamburgers” or “yum yums” or “slushburgers” and we’ll try something new next time. We also served some BBQ pulled pork which we had leftover from a dinner in December. The porkloins were roasted in the oven after marinating overnight with a spice rub mix of paprika, garlic powder, brown sugar, dry mustard and salt. We added Cattleman’s BBQ sauce after pulling the pork.
Here’s a fun fact: The Original Sloppy Joe Sandwich was invented by a cook named Joe at a cafe in Sioux City, Iowa (from Wikipedia)
Build your own banana splits for dessert! We sure love our ice cream… we used 30 gallons of ice cream (vanilla, chocolate and strawberry), 30# of sliced strawberries, 40# of bananas, and lots of toppings: crushed M&M’s, Hot fudge, butterscotch, pineapple, whipped cream and cherries.
And then we went to church for a presentation on Lutheran Outdoors and sang camp songs along with the Praise Team…
Next week’s menu post coming soon!
