Adventures in camp cooking are always fun, and sometimes pretty tasty to boot! This past weekend at the North Fork Siege was no exception; bacon/fried bread/Irish cheddar breakfast sandwiches with fresh fruit for breakfasts, bear sausage and root vegetable broth on Friday night, spit roasted mustard and honey coated pork loin and beef with shallots and garlic in red wine on Saturday night, chickpeas with smoked pork necks on Sunday. *YUM!*

And then there was the challenge of the waffle iron.

Every time I bring this item out to an event, I forget one CRITICAL rule: GREASE FIRST, GREASE LAST, GREASE ALWAYS!

*grin* By this I mean, the wafre recipe that I like to use has little in it to keep it from sticking to the wafre maker (even when said maker is pre-seasoned). This lesson leads to much cursing and hot iron cleaning before the follow-up waffles can be made. It is an annoying process, and one I hope to circumvent in future by REMEMBERING to grease the darn wafre iron between each waffle.

Not low fat, but at lot easier to get the waffle out of…*chuckle*

Because they say a picture is worth 1,000 words… )

Delicious! Especially along with the honey that [livejournal.com profile] claughter713 brought!

Thank you again to everyone who came out to the event - it was terrific and I am looking forward to the next one!

For those out there with a better grasp of basic pattern shapes in the 16th C - any thoughts on what the basic 'cloak' shape is in these images?

It appears to be somthing other than a rectangle to me (given the 'longer/knotted' corners). Perhaps a trapazoid, or two long triangles attached to a square body base?

Up next, hoods!
