Let me start with a little background information.
I love food. Even more, I love sharing food with people. Whenever I taste something I really enjoy, I want everyone else to try it too. Sometimes, when I cook my own food, and it works out well, I bring it to work and share. I find that it also brings together people in a way that other social activities never quite actuate.
Also, it helps to have an excuse to bring my favorite semi-famous sodas.
Double also, Dave Younce inspired this when he got me to bring him some Blenheim.
Triple also, Kevin Allen Jr's breakfast ham is awesome.
As such, I'm heading up a Culinary Exchange at this year's Camp Nerdly. I want to bring foods and drinks and have people bring their own and do exchanges. Bring a personal history, too, and tell us why you brought it. What does it mean to you?
However, the participants are unlikely to know how much to bring. What if they bring one soda and see four they want to try?
So, would you participate in something like this? If so, let me know what you'd probably bring and in what quantities you would be willing to bring. Will your food need post-preparation is good to note as well. Finally, if you know of an item and want to request it of someone participating, speak up!
I can bring:
- Sundrop - two or three refrigerator cases of cans; also able to acquire limited quantities of old-style bottles
- Cheerwine - same as Sundrop
- Blenheim Ginger Drinks- regular and hot varieties, probably two or three six packs of each
- Moravian Cookies - ginger cookies compressed to heavenly thin proportions
