One of my favorite parts of participating in re-enactments, is the food. Is that really a big surprise? I’m a foodie, after all. But 18th and 19th century food is delicious, and the vendor’s at these events are skilled at what they serve. Trust me. Look at all the delicious foods we had to choose from this past weekend, and this isn’t even all of it – I missed the Chicken & Dumplings booth, and the homemade ice cream, the Apple Crisp and another caramel corn booth, and a baked goods booth and a pumpkin pie and pumpkin bread booth, and I am quite certain, several others.
Hearty Wild Rice Soup in Bread Bowls & Apple Cider (photo of the soup at the bottom of all these photos!)
These cookies were as big as your head! So yum!
Lots of Elk & Buffalo served at our events.
Mmm…. Fry bread!
Home grown spices, seasonings and honey. Including the famous honey sticks kids love!
Rock candy – always a big hit at these events
Candy Sticks- 20 different flavors!! Behind that is handmade licorice in a rather large variety of flavors. It was so good!!
Ryan’s lunch – the Wild Rice Soup… does that not look AMAZING? Yum!
I honestly wish I could take each and every single one of you to one of these. If you ever do have the chance to visit a re-enactment. TRY THE FOOD! They try to make it as realistic as possible and it’s incredible!
One of my favorite parts of these events is the food. But beyond that, I love taking a step back in time to a more simple way and just absorbing it for the weekend. You know… before we head back to technology, fast paced days and crazy lives. I am the mother of 5 after all.
Can’t get much crazier than that. :*
