As part of the festival there will be a Dutch oven gathering and cook-off held at Sipokni West Old West Town near Reagan, Oklahoma. Dutch oven cooks will gather in fun and fellowship to prepare their favorite recipes in their black pots.
Miss Carol and I both will be attending this event, dressed in our time period clothing and cooking in our Dutch ovens.

The attending public will be able to sample he various dishes fixed in the black pots by cooks from across Oklahoma and Texas.
All proceeds from this event go to the support of the TREES (Tishomingo Refuge Ecology and Education Society) program through the Arbuckle-Simpson Nature Festival.
Miss Carol will be preparing Chicken Pot Pie in her Dutch oven and I've yet to decide what to cook in my Dutch. Perhaps Crab Stuffed Anaheim Peppers are in order, or maybe good and tasty Roasted Potatoes. Maybe my favorite Dutch oven recipe, Chicken in Cherry Sauce, will be in order. No matter what, the event will be fun and a good time for all.
Again, this event is Saturday, April 28th. Dutch oven offerings will be ready at 11 a.m., so make plans now to attend and sample the wonderful food prepared in Dutch ovens over open fire.
