Beware the Zombie Apocalypse!

Waiting, hiding … lurking in the shadows. He is the living dead, em … deer.

Zombie Rudolph!



Are you prepared? Do you have what it takes to survive the zombie apocalypse during Halloween Weekends at Lake Rudolph?

Here are a few helpful tips in case of a zombie attack.

Step 1: Remain calm.
Step 2: If you’re not wearing your Zombie Rudolph T-Shirt you’re probably a lost cause at this point.
Step 3: If you are wearing your Zombie Rudolph T-Shirt you can fool the zombie my dragging one leg, ripping your clothes, adopting a blank stare, and mumbling “Om nom nom.”
Step 4: Do not engage the zombie!
Step 5: If you engage the zombie, (we said to not engage … were you not listening?!) offer candy as a trade. Avoid candy corn as that will only anger the zombie. We’re talking good candy. Example: chocolate.
Step 6: If the zombie accepts you as one of it’s own and moves along, evacuate the area and relocate immediately.

  • 2 dry pints fresh blueberries, picked over and washed
  • 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 cup unbleached pastry flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk

Make It:

  1. Prepare grill or campfire for medium heat.
  2. Place cast iron skillet on the heat and add 1 stick of butter.
  3. When melted add blueberries and 1/2 cup sugar.
  4. Cook until mixture bubbles and becomes a light syrup, about 5 – 8 minutes.
  5. In medium bowl combine flour, baking powder and remaining butter until it resembles crumbs.
  6. Stir in buttermilk. Mix until the dough just comes together. Don’t overmix!
  7. Drop by spoonfuls on top of blueberry mixture. About four 1/4 cup lumps.
  8. Cover skillet with foil and cook until filing is bubbly, cobbler is firm, and a toothpick comes out clean. About 30 – 40 minutes.
