Let's Get Cooking, Campers!
There will be culinary offerings from the NWPSC Mess Hall each day of camp, if you wanted to bake and/or cook along with us at home! I'll be posting more details about the events later this week, but since a lot of people are only going out for groceries once a week, I wanted to get the shopping lists out to any gourmand campers out there to stock your pantries accordingly. Ingredient and equipment lists are in the comments!
Whether you're building a s'mores inspired dessert with Alyson in Saturday's Arts & Crafts Lodge (Zoom link to follow), or putting together a three course breakfast during Mess Hall Madness (starring Jessica Kent of 'Enter Your Ingredients' - a pinball cooking show on Twitch) Sunday morning, here's everything you'll need to get cooking in yer campsite! 🔥🍫🍳🤘
⚔️DESTROY CAMPFIRE: S'MORES TRIFLE CUPS⚔️
(🔥DELICIOUS MOVE, HUMAN🔥)
1 8 oz. package cream cheese, softened
1 pint whipping cream*
1 jar marshmallow cream - I couldn’t find any at Safeway, but managed to get a jar of Marshmallow Fluff (incidentally a staple of my New England childhood) on Amazon in 3 days. Kraft makes one too.
1 box honey graham crackers
1 bag semi-sweet chocolate chips**
Prepared brownies - from scratch, box mix, grocery store bakery - whatever suits your kitchen ambition! You really can’t screw up a trifle!
*Canned whipped cream like Reddi-Whip is fine too, if you don’t have a hand mixer. But you will need a heavy cream to cook the chocolate sauce...
**...Or buy a jar of chocolate sauce, like sundae topping, if that’s easier. I highly recommend preparing it from scratch though, it’s crazy simple and I will do it along with you on Saturday!
4 12 oz. water or cocktail glasses, mason jars, or other creative vessels that will show off the layers.
Plastic bag, ideally a Ziploc but even a plastic shopping bag will work.
