Vacation Day 5: In Search of Miike Snow
Two years ago I saw Miike Snow at Coachella. They were in my tops to see. Here I am again, so excited to see them perform their new material. Just thought everyone would like to have a little of babelicious breakfast info. See Miike Snow. Babes.
Anyway, I put myself in charge of food for 15-20 people this weekend. There are a lot of challenges. The hardest being the heat. I really have to plan according to that. Just thought I’d share what I brought and how I made it easy on myself. We have no access to water to clean pots or hands, so that is a challenge too.
I brought stuff to make one large group sized scramble that people can either put into a tortilla or a bagel. I brought pre-cut and frozen potatoes that just need to be sauteed. The eggs are the kind you buy in a carton. Not actually Egg Beaters but I bought them from Cash and Carry, a bulk restaurant food supply store. They are literally just eggs in a carton. I don’t have to worry about breaking the eggs during the drive or mixing them once we are there. I can just pour them into the pan and cook them. They store great in the ice chest too. I was going to bring pancake mix for Sunday but I found those containers of pancake mix in the whipped cream containers. I’ve had them before and they were pretty good. The label says they are organic too! I bought 3 cans at $2 each. Great deal and saves me on mess and prep. I’m also using real bacon bits for the scramble. I won’t have to chop or precook anything. I think for the amount of time and energy these things save, it is worth a tiny bit of extra money and lack of freshness. I also only plan to spend about $125 for 3 days breakfast, one big dinner, sandwich stuff, and hot dogs and sausages for the weekend for 20+ people. Pretty good right? Yup. I’m amazing.
