  • 2012 Fall Fling - Side Dishes and the Iron Skillet Award

    Hey all you cooks, wannabe cooks or anyone who can throw a mean spatula!

    As with prior Flings we need your help with Side Dishes to help feed the masses. NGTO is cooking the BBQ but we need as many side dishes as we can rustle up since the Fall Fling usually brings out about 250 hungry people.

    Always needed are deserts and it's perfectly OK if we have three different batches of Chocolate Chip Cookies or four different sets of brownies or seven kinds of gooey cake (Doris, are you reading this? )

    Baked beans, green bean salad, three-bean salad - if it's got beans in it that's great!

    A big batch of grandma's secret slaw? Wonderful!

    Corn casserole? Bring it!

    The only limit is your imagination. And as before we'll have paper buckets in front of each dish on the buffet tables. Fall Flingers will receive one ticket (usually red) to vote for their favorite side dish. The cook with the most tickets wins the NGTO Iron Skillet! (really, it's an Iron Skillet.) You also win culinary bragging rights for another year.

    So please start thinking about those side dishes and we'll look forward to seeing them - and eating them - at the Fall Fling on November 3!

      I caught a whiff of wood smoke this morning which reminded me that the Fall Fling is only a month away, which means it's not too soon to be thinking about what Side Dishes you might bring!

      As before the winner of the Iron Skillet contest is the industrious chef who prepares the most-liked side dish, sweet or savory. The rules are simple;
      • Each side dish will have a bucket placed in front of the dish.
      • Each Fling participant will be issued one (1) ticket with which to cast their vote for the side dish they liked the best.
      • This year you'll need to decide; did I like those Best Under the Sun Big Box Brownies more than Grandma's Baked Beans with Enzymes?

      The winner takes home a new Lodge skillet!



      So please do bring your side dishes! (And keep in mind, in good weather the Fall Fling brings out about 250 hungry souls. You don't need to feed them all but a little extra is appreciated.)

                  Unfortunately I will not be able to make this year to defend my title so it looks as if Bill will add some more cast to his collection this year via "The Roosevelt Beans"....UNLESS someone steps their cook'n up a notch

                      Question, how are the sides kept warm? Is it something provided?

                          I cook in cast iron so thats a plus in keeping warm. Then I wrap it in 2 or 3 old towels or a small blanket and put it in an ice chest. It will stay hot for 3hours or more, as long as you keep the lid closed. Others have brought coleman stoves, etc to keep dishes hot.
