Solstice Party!!

Every year we have a wild party to celebrate the longest night of the year.  The idea is to stay awake as long as possible, and to that end we have a night of cooking, and whatever other activities people dream up (dancing, games, lip sync, bonfire, poetry slam, music.... anything goes).  Vonda always plans the complicate menu (intentionally choosing recipes that are challenging to make) and buys all the ingredients. People sign up in teams to make the foods, staring with appetizers around 8pm and desserts in the early morning hours.  This year at 3am there were still 16 people with open eyes ready for a bite of sugar!

Our Common House kitchen easily accommodates many cooks!
