Meet and Greet FOOD thread!
 
While it would be hard to starve at Seonunsan (Jeollabuk-do is known for it's food, and Seonunsan is no exception), we've traditionally had a big social gathering Sat PM and breakfast Sun AM. When we started M&Gs, the gys on the bases helped us with a "South of the Border" themed burrito buffet (before Tesco, Costco and huge foreign food marts . . . these things were real treats!) and pancake breakfasts (banana walnut, blueberry. . .). . . but more recently (last year we had about 70 people) it got a little disorganized. As it's likely turnout won't be that big, it would be a great tradition to revive. It can also be problematic if people promise to bring something and don't show up!

Friday was a bit more of a pot-luck. I always do something vegetarian, with anyone RSVPing included, and I'll eat anything Danielle brings!

As Danielle suggested, pot-luck is good. Some organization for pot-lucking helps, so here's the "traditional" food thread. Korean custom is that group food is shared and it definitely makes it nicer. Those of us with cars/ice chests, Costco access and/or access to bases/big cities can generally bring more, while those packing it in from remote corners contribute financially, helping cook, etc.

People who are heading down Friday-- do you want to eat at a restaurant or bring pot-luck? Would folks be up for Mexican (loosely interpreted. . . we are in Asia!) Sat and pancake breakfast Sun (which doesn't mean you can't bring muffins or anything?)

We've had people commit on this thread to avoid 140 tortillas and no cheese.
Ideas, thoughts, commitments? I'll hold off and try to get anything that is not "taken" . . . I can also bring some stoves, pots and pans, etc.

nationalpickleday 03-31-2011 06:57 AM

I bring southwestern flavoured Hummous, and slow cooked black beans!

mdeek 03-31-2011 09:57 PM

Well after reading about your accident Danielle it is encouraging for me to at least try to get out, even if it's just to chill. I have meniscus surgery on Tuesday and will hopefully be able bear a pack and walking by Easter weekend.
If so, I will bring Chakalaka. ^ ^

skinsk 03-31-2011 10:33 PM

Come for Danielle's veggie delights, Matt. I'll bring your stuff down Thurs. . . if you can't bear a pack, then pack a beer.

So any food related comments:p

nationalpickleday 04-01-2011 12:00 AM

yes... always remember positivity pulls through any and all ****! meniscus - bah! coma and live your life. I'll carry your pack!!

obsessed 04-01-2011 02:55 PM

Well, for people who aren't vegetarian I have access to the commisary on camp casey... I can grab whatever meat is wanted. I'll also see if I can get uncle sam to donate to us a bunch of muffins to go with breakfast.

Canadian Grizzly 04-03-2011 07:52 PM

I like where your head's at Obsessed!

skinsk 04-05-2011 11:12 PM

Whatcha bringing Jake?!?!

Jason9909 04-06-2011 09:21 PM

I've seen some tortillas at Homeplus. I imagine they have chips similar to tortilla chips. And I also think I could put together something resembling a 7-layered dip.

I could do that or if it's easier, I could do the lazy thing and just throw in some cash. Whatever's easiest.

Jason

skinsk 04-06-2011 10:31 PM

I vote for 7 layer dip. . . even if you have to get down to 5 to do a vegetarian version. . . !!! cool beans (so to speak!)

I will do coffee for say, 10 Sunday.

If people can bring tomatoes/onions/garlic (and some chopping) I'll also bring the magic spice mix used at last Spring's meet and greet for salsa!

Jason-- if you bring the 7(5:lol: ) layer dip, chips and say, 15 tortillas, I bet we can find you a tent (but you'd need a sleeping bag/mat. . . purchases that will pay off for long time. . . however, depending on the content of the dip. . . tent space may be harder to come by:rolleyes8 )

engel 04-06-2011 11:05 PM

Mmmm!
 
Loosely interpreted mexican Sat and pancakes for Sunday sounds great!!
I can make salsa-will bring bag of onions,tomatoes,garlic&chopping board. And will help with any other food prep.
Friday evening I wouldn't mind to try some of the famous local fare.
Any climbing happening on Fri? :))

Jason9909 04-07-2011 10:18 AM

7 layer (or however many layers I can figure out) dip, chips, and tortillas it is.

I'll work on the sleeping bag & mat. Thanks!

obsessed 04-07-2011 12:47 PM

Hey jason, i can do chips and tortillas for you .... i have access to the american comisary... and I bet I can find a military sleep system for you to try and borrow too... hit me up and we'll hash it out if its helpful.

Jason9909 04-07-2011 06:08 PM

Awesome, thanks! You have been hit up!

jademarie 04-10-2011 10:05 AM

I'll be there from Friday night.

Can't really bring so much in the way of food all the way from Samcheok but happily contribute to the cost and cooking etc!!

skinsk 04-14-2011 09:13 PM

Please copy, paste and AMEND with your addition/contribuion (or if I got something wrong) feel free to add to my non-exclusive list if you have a specialty that's not listed or if I have forgotten something! Note how much you can bring. . . comittment will get you dibs!

thinking to yourself. . . or e-mailing me and saying "I'll throw in" or "whatever" is really not helpful, in the sense of we need to know how much of what we have, so other can bring more of something else. Making a commitment IS helpful. If you are coming a long way-- look at the list and offer to pay for something and someone can take you up and bring it. Or maybe you can buy it at Seonunsan.

skinsk 04-15-2011 11:36 AM

OK, so so far it looks like a few people really stepping up.

Scott-- maybe you can get one of those ajossi carts and push it in?! or bring some extra people and split it up!
Jason--certainly more than "your part"

We'll probably need an ice chest for the meat (it can't go in mine :o ) as well as a pan to cook it . . . and some more stoves, utensils. . . etc.

Everyone should try to bring a personal mess set/cup/plate, but I do have some I keep in the car.

Milk, OJ, Makkoli can be bought on site (there are small supermarkets)

obsessed 04-15-2011 01:51 PM

i dunno when i voluteered for syrup but ill bring it if you need it. I was bringing tequila...

Jason9909 04-15-2011 04:14 PM

Yeah, I think she accidentally swapped us on the syrup/tequila. I'll bring the syrup, you bring the tequila.

skinsk 04-15-2011 09:58 PM

see. . . that's why I want everyone to cut and paste the whole thing^^ I did my best scrolling up and down . . . tequilla on pancakes might be OK, but syrup with Margarita mix. . . not so good. you guys seem to have sorted it our. I better double check what I am down for!

(my mistake was probably in large part due to y'all both carrying more than your weight. We'll point donations your way!)

Canadian Grizzly 04-18-2011 12:59 PM

I'll bring:

some pancake mix (western and korean style)
coffee (Timmy Ho's)
stove, perk and frying pan

pliving 04-18-2011 04:52 PM

let me know if there is anything else you guys need. I'm more than happy to help out

skinsk 04-18-2011 06:36 PM

Patrick, if you can bring somrthing easier to get in Seoul (sour cream? guacamole? more tortillas?), great. . . or bring a stove? look at the list below and copy/paste with your additions! The list isn't exclusive. . . if you can think of something else. . . milk, OJ, alcohol (beer, makkoli. . .) can be bought on-site if you don't want to haul!

Food..
 
Food.. very important! I will bring some pancake goodies. And some veg for the mexican delights. And marshmellows.. does one get those in Korea? Very important for the camp fire. Looking forward to it!

TashyB 04-19-2011 08:08 PM

Oh I didn't see the list..

To be more specific: I will look for Avo for Guacamole. And I will bring tomatoes, onions. Some bread for extra sandwhiches, dip for veg sticks.
Maybe I can make a salad.

For pancakes I will bring banana, lemon, cinnamon, soy milk and orange juice.
Some eggs (why not).
I can also bring my mini gas stove, and some utensils.

Bad news. Uncle sam called me back to work. I've got the stuff which I'm more than willing to donate to the cause but someones going to have to come get it... I really dont know what to do here. Kinda feel like a douchebag.

Scott--

that sucks. . . on no notice! I doubt anyone can get up your way. . . maybe if you could get down to Seoul. . . we may be able to pick up some tortillas in Jeongeup. Are none of your crew coming? maybe you can send them down! We'd take care of them climbing and all. . .

Danielle, cool beans. I had one small can (that Jean brought me last time) left that I brought . . .

pliving 04-22-2011 01:57 PM

I'm going to make a run to E-Mart tonight and try and get some of the stuff that Scott was going to bring. I don't know how much of a selection E-mart has so stuff like tortillas are maybes.
