Desert Dutch Oven Diva's~Sisters on the Fly

This is me with my cowgirl apron on watching over my dutch oven.
In the background is my friend Cat's ~ The Vintage Housewife PINK trailer!
Yes, she is a Sister to! Oh, what fun she is! This passed weekend I went to a Sisters on the Fly outing held in the desert of Quartzsite, AZ. It was the 4th annual "Desert Dutch Oven Diva's" outing, sponsored by the AZ Sisters. This one is a Sister/Mister outing, so our hubby's got to come! What a wonderful time we had, showing off our trailers, eating, singing around the fire (my hubby played his banjo & guitar!), eating, gabbing, shopping, dutch oven cooking and more eating! I entered in the dutch oven cook off and won a 3rd. place ribbon for my White Chili! Boy, was I excited! Several of us caravan together coming & going. It is always so fun to see peoples faces as they see us coming down the highway in our little vintage trailers!
I love my Sisters on the Fly, Sisters! Watching over my dutch oven. Notice my PINK cowgirl boots?My prize winning White Chili.
Thanks daughter Shelli for the recipe! Yummy!
The sourdough rolls are Molly's! So good!
