The Stephens' annual Memorial Day bash is really more of a ward party. It redefines "going dutch." Everyone with a hankering, brings their dutch oven over and cooks up a terrific selection of meats, stews, enchiladas, as well as desserts! In addition, everyone else brings sides and desserts.
This is our third year attending, and has become something we really look forward to. Every year I say I'm going to bring a dutch oven, too, but somehow, I haven't got around to trying that yet. In the meantime we specialize on eating what everyone else has cooked! I made trifle and mac' n' cheese, which were both, thankfully, finished off before we came home. I feel like a successful cook when I bring home an empty bowl!
