I <3 this thread.
I'll definitely bring something yummy to the M&G as I REALLY (cough) plan on making it this year.
I love to cook or "finish" foods out there. Food tastes so amazing. I CAN survive on the dashboard warmed can stuff for part of the time, but I get a great deal of enjoyment of preparing and sharing food.
I grilled up a mess of kielbasa and brats last year and shared them, that was fun. I also brought frozen balls of homemade choc chip cookie dough and baked them up; it seemed well received.
It helps build my pre-playa joy and joyness to prep food. I have a lot of fun testing recipes and ideas. I have marinated steaks, chops and prepared bbq pulled pork and similar things; frozen them for a week then cooked them "playa style" at home as a test to see how they came out.
A camp mate of ours has a fabulous kitchen set up and he has, on occasion, grilled/roasted whole turkeys, roasts and batches of all sorts of yummy goodness. I can't even tell you how good it was.
