Duffers New Year 2012-2013 - Food

Error message

Deprecated function: Array and string offset access syntax with curly braces is deprecated in include_once() (line 20 of /public/societies/cuhwc/public_html/new_drupal/includes/file.phar.inc).

A page for all food-related discussion/organisation to avoid cluttering up the main page.

Listed below are various items of breakfast, lunch and snack food, based on what we ate last year. I'll add quantities later - the default assumption will be that everyone will eat a bit of everything, but it would be useful if people could make a note if they are likely to eat either none/very little or excessively large amounts of any of these by adding a - or + after the item. Question marks indicate items that were not widely eaten last year so may be left out if people don't '+' them. Also feel free to add things.

Dinners

I think last year's arrangement (where the list of recipes and ingredients for each meal were kept in the kitchen so anyone could cook anything) worked really well, so I propose something similar this year. Arranging meals communally also prevents duplication of ingredients and associated waste. So, please suggest meals; if there are more than 6 suggestions by say the start of December then we can vote on them. As usual, things with both meat and veggie options are good.

Here's last year's page for reference.
