Umm the meal isn't very important so long as it is messy. Basically once everyone has gotten their meal the blindfolds must go on and then you eat blindfolded.....of course only half the group shall eat at a time so that the other half can either direct them or laugh at them.

Faux Meal

Submitted by: Big Bro
Primary Concept: Cuisine
Difficulty: Average
Served as: Breakfast,Lunch,Dinner,Snack
Cost range: Average
Preparation time: 30 minutes
Equipment Needs: Substantial
Basics of the meal
This is like the fluff meal, but in this meal the things don't have to look their best, they have to look like what they are not. Beef could be shaped to look like parts of a bird, peas could be wrapped in leaves to look like beans. I'm sure there are more thoughts, since I have some which I could not put here in but a few words or in a way that would be clear.

Fluff Meal

Submitted by: Big Bro
Primary Concept: Cuisine
Difficulty: Average
Served as: Lunch,Dinner
Cost range: High
Preparation time: 30 minutes
Equipment Needs: Substantial
Basics of the meal
The meal would be foods that we eat all the time, but they would have to be set so they looked like they were some great thing. (Each thing should like as though it were the best one of its kind the world had seen), or they could be spruced up to look like they were great. Rand Stew served on a bed of rice, with some things set on the plate in a way that might please the eye, that sort of thing.

Switched Meal

Submitted by: Big Bro
Primary Concept: Ambience
Difficulty: Average
Served as: Snack
Cost range: Average
Preparation time: 30 minutes
Equipment Needs: Moderate
Basics of the meal
Each would put the food on his plate but then would draw a lot to see who he should switch plates with. There would be no more to eat and none could share the food on their plate or throw it in the trash (like Jeff). If we did it not by lot, but by weight it might be more fun, but if we did it that way, we would have to make it so that none but a few knew which meal, else it would spoil the game.

The long meal

Submitted by: Big Bro
Primary Concept: Ambience
Difficulty: Average
Served as: Snack
Cost range: Average
Preparation time: 30 minutes
Equipment Needs: Moderate
Basics of the meal
This meal would be served with food for each group (so we would not line up). The rule would be that you could not take food from the dish where you sat. You would have to serve to your plate from the next group. It would be up to each group to come up with their own way to reach. You can not stand up or touch the dish at all, nor can you touch the dish where you sit.

Horse Meal

Submitted by: Big Bro
Primary Concept: Ambience
Difficulty: Average
Served as: Snack
Cost range: Average
Preparation time: 30 minutes
Equipment Needs: Moderate
Basics of the meal
You get to play with your food. The group is split based on where they sit. Those who sit in one place must do a trick with their food to eat. If the one who is in the lead throws a grape in the air and lands it in his mouth, so must the rest. If they do not, they get an H. When they spell out HORSE, they can not have more to eat.

Quiz Meal

Submitted by: Big Bro
Primary Concept: Ambience
Difficulty: Average
Served as: Snack
Cost range: Average
Preparation time: 30 minutes
Equipment Needs: Moderate
Basics of the meal
The food would not mean much, but the meal could be like a game show, with a set of tests for each food: "I'll take peas for two spoons, Mark-->" and then if you're right, you get two spoons. If you're wrong, you don't. The quiz could be set so that you could pick the group for the quiz too, so that you would know that you could choose from math, law, scouts, guides, etc. You could then pick which thing went with which food, so I could put scouts to a food I liked more and law to a food I liked less in hopes that I could eat more of what I liked.

162 Anniversary Banquet

Submitted by: Jeff
Primary Concept: Cuisine
Difficulty: Nigh Impossible
Served as: Dinner
Cost range: High
Preparation time: Over an hour
Equipment Needs: Substantial
Basics of the meal
It has been 20 years since the 100-dish banquet. As we celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Mi-Gi-Si O-Paw-Gan Lodge, a one hundred sixty-two dish banquet seems appropriate. We might use the dining hall this time. (It wasn't there 20 years ago)
