I think I gained about 5 pounds reading the recipes submitted by those of you who either:
A) have mercy on me now that I’ve taken on a huge cookbook project
B) like to win wicked cool prizes
C) really enjoy cooking
I can respect all three reasons.
Seriously, y’all have sent in some yummy sounding stuff. I say “sounding” because I haven’t prepared any of them…yet. (I’ve got to stick to apples and low-fat granola to get in shape for turkey season, then I’m gonna blow the diet with gusto!)
And now it’s time to announce the top camo chefs and their recipes.
BEST SOUNDING BREAKFAST DISH
Tom Nare of California will receive a black and pewter NWTF logo mug for his Wild Duck/Goose Breakfast Scramble.
BEST SOUNDING DESSERT or DRINK
Jim Kelly of Georgia gets a three-pack of Knight & Hale’s Bad Medicine Series diaphragm calls just in time for opening day. Good luck, Jim! Bet you’ll mix up some Wild Turkey Bourbon Slushies if you get one, won’t ya?
I didn’t receive any packable snack recipes, so I’m giving away two prizes for…
BEST SOUNDING SOUP, SALAD or SANDWICH
Beth Cowgill of Missouri can relax to a dogwood-scented, Eastern wild turkey-themed candle handmade by best female editor of a turkey magazine under 5-foot-2. She gets it for sending in her Aunt Bubba’s Baked Turkey and Potato Soup recipe. (Here’s a cute little twist: She’s Aunt Bubba!)
And Quaker Boy’s own Ernie Calendrelli can pack out meat for his awesome-sounding Wild Game Cutlet Sandwiches in the new soft-sided camo cooler that’s being sent his way.
Congrats to you all. And most of all, thanks for taking part in what’s turning out to be a really fun project. I already have delicious recipes and camp cooking back stories from hunting greats Will Primos, Cuz Strickland and Troy Ruiz.
You should join in the fun. Send the 411 on your favorite camp dishes to email@example.com.
Also, don’t miss out on current and future giveaways through this blog. There’s actually one happening right now around the March-April issue of Turkey Country.
The best way to stay in the loop is to friend me on Facebook.
Yes, I realize that’s basically buying friends. But it’s not weird if you admit it, right?
