At Eleanor's school we have the uber volunteer mom coordinating many of the activities. I do some things but am often not available to do all the cooking and serving. When I received the email asking for volunteers to make chicken for Civil War Day a few weeks ago I was glad to volunteer since she made it easy. The recipe is online and she had pans, liquid smoke, salt, and chicken (legs only for this time) purchased for us.
The smell of this chicken baking made my head ache a bit...must have been the smell from the liquid smoke; however, Eleanor said that it tasted surprisingly good.
We were thankful to get the costume from a friend. Sounds like a fun day of cricket, drill, and food.
