Great Dutch Oven Cookin’ in Glen­wood

Catron Courier - - News -

by Molly Bryan

The Glen­wood Dutch Oven Gath­er­ing held Satur­day April 7 was a great suc­cess. We had beau­ti­ful weather to cook and en­joy the day. We ended up hav­ing 6 cook­ing teams and sold ap­prox­i­mately 160 meals for the folks to en­joy.

We had cooks come from Sh­effield, Texas, Al­bu­querque, So­corro, Sil­ver City and Glen­wood.

Many at­tended the event and en­joyed the fes­tiv­i­ties. There were also sev­eral ven­dors with a va­ri­ety of dif­fer­ent items for sale. The lo­cal Catholic church had a nice cof­fee, tea booth, there was a food ven­dor truck with nice break­fast and lunch items, the lo­cal 4-H kids sold drinks and cook­ies, and we even had an ice cream ven­dor, which went over well with the warm day. The meals ranged from pork chops and fix­ings, en­chi­lada casseroles, Navajo tacos and roast beef din­ner and a Moroc­can chicken meal.

The meal tick­ets sold quickly and ev­ery­one en­joyed a nice meal.

I want to thank all who at­tended and helped with the event and the gen­er­ous folks who do­nated money to make this event a suc­cess.

The cook­ing teams were all re­im­bursed their ticket sales plus a nice gift bag we put to­gether for them. Thank you to all of my helpers also for mak­ing the event a suc­cess.

The ma­jor­ity of the money earned went to sup­port our nice Com­mu­nity Park where the event was held.

We will see you next year around the same time. Get your Dutch Ovens ready.
