Cooking for Seathwaite Trip, 4th-9th January 2013

This is a wiki page to organise food for the Seathwaite (Lake District) Vacation Trip from 4th-9th January 2013. Given people are arriving and leaving on different dates, this is a bit more difficult to manage than for weekend trips, but if people want to try to organise group meals, then this is the place to do so.

High House has a good kitchen, including multiple hobs, oven, microwaves, fridge, the usual crockery, cutlery and utensils, and an on-demand water heater. The club will provide usual supplies of tea, coffee, hot chocolate, milk (for cereal and drinks, but not for cooking in large quantities), sugar, biscuits, cooking oil and washing-up stuff.

Friday 4th January

The people travelling in those cars leaving later will probably eat somewhere en route. If you're planning on being in the bunkhouse earlier in the evening, feel free to organise cooking anyway.

Saturday 5th January


Given this is the busiest night in the bunkhouse (and kitchen), I suggest you go to the pub this evening. The nearest pub is the Scafell Hotel in Rosthwaite. If you're likely to be interested, add your name below (or express any thoughts on changing to another night if you'd prefer!).

Has anyone checked that they're open and booked us in - we're a large enough group that it might be a good idea?!

  • Greg (Seemingly the only person currently eating food at Seathwaite :) I admire everyone else's dedication to their presumably pre planned post christmas diets)
  • Paul F (is hoping that two hours on a bike has reversed the effects of the turkey)
  • Jack D is okay the pub on Saturday night.
  • David (Ponting)
