WHAT WE'RE EATING Mammoth 2013

This weekend we’ll all be traipsing off to Mammoth Mountain for a company field trip! Some of us will be skiing, a few snowboarding, while a handful of stragglers will be cooking up something warm and yummy for dinner. But cooking for a group of over twenty is no small feat! We’re bringing a few crock-pots to help us out, but still stuck on what we should make! Help us! Do you have any great recipes that are perfect for large groups? Please share and help us get some good grub!

Beef Stew with Bacon

I just made something similar 2 weeks ago. What made it fantastic was the grass fed short ribs I purchased from Whole Foods. I was raised on good quality meat which you just can't purchase in any grocery these days.
PS I'll be happy to feed a crew on your way up to Mammoth!

Forgot to post what I would make, for the mornings I would make steel cut oatmeal with milk, vanilla bean, cinnamon etc. in a crockpot and have all your toppings on the side. Evening meals, something like pulled pork or French dip in a crockpot as well. I do have an excellent recipe for a breakfast casserole with ham, cheese and Ortega chiles that you can make ahead and heat up on the mornings you don't want to cook.
Happy skiing and be safe!

A fave that I've adapted in various ways over the years is an African peanut stew from the long out-of-print Africa News Cookbook. Main ingredients are chicken, chickpeas, some diced tomato, peanut butter, kale/spinach/other greens, plus w/minced ginger, cumin, coriander. It's great over basmati rice.

I always make delicious portable food for potluck parties, good enough to feed a crowd of 20-30. Here's what I reccomend for dessert: Make Dulce De Leche blondies. Use a regular blondie recipe (in a 13x9 in pan), swirl in some store bought dulce de leche and bake . Let cool, cut into bars and transport them in the same pan :-) .

For main course, make spicy chicken sandwiches. Use store bought cooked chicken breast (or roast it yourself), create a spice blend of your choice, I like paprika, turmeric, chili powder, chopped cilantro or parsley, olive oil, salt, pepper, lemon juice (alter to your taste). Saute the chicken in this delicious spice blend. Make a sauce with plain yogurt, salt, pepper and cumin powder. Butter the slices of bread or buns (if you like butter that is), spread the chicken, top with yogurt and cover with the other slice/bun. Wrap in individual tin foil and transport. Substitute chicken with mushroom for vegetarians.

The recipe above is my own, and I just eye ball the proportions :-)
