Cooking for Capel Curig Trip, 30th January - 1st February

This is a wiki (editable web page) to organise cooking for this weekend's trip to Caseg Fraith. The kitchen at Tan-y-Garth is quite small, with a small seating area, and is "equipped with two separate gas cookers, two fridges, a microwave, toasters and electric kettles".

Click edit at the top to change the text (you'll need to be logged in to your account on the website first - click here to register if you don't have one). You can either suggest a meal idea or join one of the existing ones and you're obviously also welcome to sort yourself out (move your name to 'Independent'). Please remove your name from the 'Not yet signed-up for meal' list too once you're in a group or have decided to cook alone. The person who suggests the meal is responsible for arranging the ingredients - everyone else in the group should bring money on the trip to pay for their share, and expect to help with the preparation and washing up.

Note regarding those staying at Siabod Longhouse

Due to the small size of Tan-y-Garth, it won't be possible for us all to cook there, so please sign up/add a meal with 'Siabod' in the 'Location' field. Once everyone has eaten, and things have calmed a little, everyone should be able to head over to Tan-y-Garth for socialising (the two huts are about 400m apart). The kitchen at Siabod is modern, equipped with an oven, hobs and microwave, and a seating area for 10 people.

Meal suggestions by Tuesday evening. Finalise groups by Wednesday night so the person suggesting the meal knows how much they have to buy and has a couple of days to do the shopping.
