On 2003-10-18 20:00 onwards there will be a party, of the Barbecue and drinks variety, to which everyone I know is hereby invited.
That's Not Today
It will probably go on until well past midnight, but if you turn up early there may still be some mead left. (If you turn up too early, like miles before 8, you may get hooked into helping setup :-)
If you think you are likely to come, an email to douglasr at chiark.greenend.org.uk beforehand would be appreciated so I have a rough idea of how much food to get, but it is by no means required - the more the merrier.
Fun and or interesting items always appreciated. (for example, bottles of drink)
Anyone got preferences for what sort of meats gets BBQ'ed? I have at least one vegetarian coming - suggestions? (so far: sweetcorn and potatos)
I've done courgettes, tomatoes and mushrooms on a skewer before. No idea whether it was edible or not, I was eating the meat myself. If you're thinking of Alex, he isn't strictly veggie - he likes cheese wrapped in bacon, for instance :) Eggs wrapped in foil and put straight on the coals for a bit can work too, apparently, although I've never tried it myself. - MoonShadow
Bacon-wrapped cheese seems to go down really well for some reason. 3/4 to 1 inch cubes of mature cheddar, wrap each with a rasher of smoked bacon, and skewer with a cocktail stick to keep together. Cook them early, and quickly, when the fire's hot. Crisps the bacon a bit, and jut melts the cheese. I'll happily do some, and bring it along... -- TI
