we're maple people

This Sunday afternoon I'll be on a family bowling outing in the southern part of the state (naturally), but if I was going to be in town I'd make some maple gruel and enter it in the maple cook-off at the University of Vermont.

Curried squash soup sweetened with maple syrup seems obvious. So do spice cupcakes with maple frosting. A variation on farro gruel with a maple balsamic dressing, topped with Doe's Leap feta? Too subtle/gruelish, maybe.

It doesn't matter: I'm not going to be here, but I'm hoping to experience the cook-off vicariously through some of you. The deadline to register is Friday at 5:00, though you don't have to have your (hopefully prizewinning—there are some great prizes) gruel ready until Sunday. Let the best GFD reader win.
