When Wild at Heart Farmgirls get together things happen. The very minute we parked our rigs and our feet hit the ground Garden Farms Chickie took the reins and got farmgirls "glue welding" their own personalized candlestick/mason jar glasses while SLO Farmgirl set us up to create our own personalized name tag charm so we could keep track of whose was whose! They were barely dry when Just Jannie's incredible lemon drop martinis were poured into them!
Omelots In A Bag is our farmgirl breakfast tradition. Best part is there's no pan to fuss over after breakfast! We put a large pot of water on to boil while everyone writes their name on a freezer ziploc gallon sized bag. After mixing eggs and milk together (about 2 eggs each) each farmgirl scopes a ladel of egg into her bag.... then chooses from a colorful lineup of chopped and shreaded veggies and cheeses...adding whatever ingredients she chooses. After getting all air out of the bag we pop them into the boiling water and wait for them to cook! Perfect omelot everytime!
We ate and we ate... then we ate some more. On the trail.... campfire cookin..... cast iron baking..... Just Jannie razel dazzeled us all with her cast iron cooking skills. How does crab dip with homemade bread grab ya? Baked to perfection I might add.... over charcoal briquettes.... in cast iron pans... complete with how- to instruction handouts... that farmgirl's down right amazing that one is! I was IMpressed!
And then... we ate some more.... this time it was tin foil dinners. On a heavy duty piece of tin foil we each added chicken, veggies, seasoning.... sweet potatoes, onions, celery and parsnips.. adding fresh rosemary and thyme. We folded our packets and wrapped them one more time in foil. We wrote our names with a sharpee and added them to hot coals that had been burning down in the pit flipping and moving them around the coals until they smelled done... 20 - 30 minutes. Add toppings of diced onion, cilantro, salsa and feta cheese and you've got yourself a feast!
Fire Dove taught us to wind fabric around hangers to make heart hangers. She brought her drums and we drummed and sang around the campfire. We ate smores and campfire banana splits. We rode bikes and hiked and talked and shared. Women from completely different backgrounds who probably would never have met and become friends if it weren't for farmgirls.... now joined at the heart. And it was all over way too soon.
