Countdown to Salado

It's Official.  March 15, 2014 at Pace Park is the approved date and place of the next Salado Eggfest. 

More news will be forthcoming about hotel and B&B rooms, door prizes, registration, etc, but we've still got a few days to work out the details.  Those days go quickly too.

The best thing is it's still free to all. 

And we will have four Mini Eggs and maybe some other goodies going home with someone.

Again, it's not too early to start thinking about what you plan to cook or where you will spend the weekend: hotel or B&B or RV Park.  Remember also, that Salado has many wonderful shops and restaurants to visit while you're in town.

I know March 15th is the Ides of March, and some of you will be drawn to wearing your togas, but it is also St. Patrick's Day Weekend and perfect for wearing your kilt or Irish Green.  Of course, other forms of dress are the accepted norm, but where's the fun in being normal???

Come on, plan your March 15th weekend to be in Salado, either as a cook or as a taster.  What better way to spend it? 

Oh, and you can feel free to forward information about the Salado Eggfest to your friends and family, near and far.  It's a great opportunity for a family gathering.

Here's the link to this site:

And while you're at it, check out the new Salado Forum.  Yes, we now have our own Forum.  Click Here or the link is at the top of the Links List to the right.

If you have been thinking about buying another Egg, you might want to look into the Demo Egg pricing.  These are Large Eggs that will have been used once at the Eggfest for about six hours.  That qualifies them for a discounted price, but you have to buy them ahead of the Eggfest and take them home immediately after the Eggfest.  You can read about how to buy them, and other Eggs that have been discounted here:

Stay tuned as the Eggcitement builds...

See you in Salado.

Salado Eggfest 2013 Was Wonderful - Again...

This was the third Salado Eggfest and it was the best yet.  The crowd was larger, the weather better, the food tastier, the park prettier, and the Village of Salado more welcoming.

Mickey has become a Master at holding Eggfests, and Russ and his crew at Keith Ace Hardware did an outstanding job of setting up the Demo Eggs for the Cooks, and operating the Big Green Egg Accessory Store.

The Eggfest, the Meet & Greet party Friday night and the After Party Saturday night went off without a hitch.

And what can I say about the Cooks...  You guys were fantastic!  Not only were there lots of simple but tasty dishes, there were a lot of very creative dishes that one would not expect to see outside a professional kitchen.  We hope to gather recipes from everyone and post them on this site for all to try.

I believe this may be a first for any Eggfest, but we actually had some Tasters fly in by helicopter.  And yes, it was Mickey who made the arrangements for where they could land near the Park.  Very cool...

Of course, being St. Patrick's Day weekend and Salado being a host town for a major Scottish Clan Gathering each year, a few of us wore our kilts and Irish Green.

And here's a wee bit of news: Our blog site has now grown to 27,000 hits from almost 50 countries.  People around the world are taking a close look at what we Eggheads do for entertainment.  And they keep coming back for more.  Don't you just love being part of it all...

I tried to capture the moment by collecting all the photos I could and assemble them into a video which I posted on YouTube.  Take a look...

Thanks for coming.

See you next year.
