Cooking for Patterdale Trip, 2nd-4th March 2012

This is a wiki (editable web page) to organise cooking for the CUHWC trip to the George Starkey Hut, in Patterdale, Lake District, on the weekend of 2nd-4th March 2012. This hut has a large 'newly refurbished' kitchen, which has two cookers, two double hobs, a large fridge, two microwaves, two sinks, and constant hot water. All cooking utensils, crockery and cutlery are provided. The club will supply cooking oil.

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 section at the bottom 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 meal preparation and washing up.

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.
