    Guess it's about time for it folks!

    Meeting 11:

    Where: My house (I'll post directions, soon!)
    When: Saturday August 23
    Time: 12:30 ish


    RSVP here and remember to sign up for what you are bringing!

    Also, does anyone have dietary/personal comments regarding what we'll be barbequeing? I was trying to decide between just doing burgers and such or chicken or tri tip or whatever.

    Suggestions on things to bring:
    Side dishes
    Garlic bread
    Salad
    Desserts
    Drinks

    No more than one person per thing! (For example, you CANNOT all sign up for drinks and/or garlic bread, guys!)

    Okay, I wouldn't miss this meeting for the world. :D

    I am up for bringing my, much-talked-about-but-never-actually-made Death Star Popcorn Balls, or a dessert of some kind.(EDIT: Tell me if this violates the "one thing per person" rule, then I will commit and not wait on everyone else.) I will gauge this on whatever everyone else seems to bring. More desserts means more chance for popcorn balls or something else out of the cookbook side-dish like. :)

    Also, you all will finally have a chance to meet my grandpa, as he will be attending also if that is ok. My mom is going to be out of town and he is my only form of transportation, plus, I think you'd all like him. :)

    I'll bring drink! Wooo! I get the easy thing. Also, Kai's back from touring the US and Japan so I'll do my best to get him to come to the meeting as well.

    Well, if my Cherry Pies, PLUS, Kieran's Popcorn Balls, violates the 1 thing per person rule, then I, too, will bring a sidedish of some sort.

    Also, Dante will be attending as well!

    Yeah, I am up for bringing whatever we need. If we run short on side-dishes or whatever, I can scrounge up something. I am always eager to test my culinary skills. ;)

    Two desserts is fine by me, as are additional family members. After all, my Mr. will be along as well.

    Thoughts on the meats? How about some sort of chicken wings or homemade asian style chicken nuggets (very good, trust me) along with hamburgers?

    Also, as food is involved, I'll need an RSVP count by, say Wednesday.

    I will eat anything except asparagus, which I am allergic too. Other than that, cook whatever you want and I will eat it. :)

    Well, GB, the Asian Chicken thing sounds divine, as Dante and I are fans of both Chicken (which we prefer) and anything Asian. So, I will vote for that.

    As for a count...it'll be me and Dante.

    I can't wait...should be a load of fun!

    Ah, thanks for reminding me GB. :)

    EDIT:/b] I should have a final count of who I am bringing by Tuesday. Though, I have a feeling it will just be my grandfather. :)

    Good Lord, I'm going to be all alone. :(

    Umm, I'll bring whatever no one else wants to, I suppose.

    You know, she could just say the directions got lost in cyberspace for the certain people she doesn't like, and no one would be the wiser!

    Ok, cool!

    It's my last night in NJ and I was getting a little paranoid. ;)

    Guess you'll have to just wait and see, YJ.....if you get them, you'll know for sure, and if you don't, you may never know the truth, eh?

    :~)

    OK, reviewing foods so far:

    Zar is bringing her cherry pie, which sounds amazing. (What do you think, Zar, should you bring some ice cream to top it with, too? Or would that ruin the purity of the essence of your pie?)

    Keiran is bringing Death Star Popcorn Balls and possibly something else.

    marmakecam is bringing drinks....and ice? Can you bring hamburger buns, too? (Or, if Kai can come, have him bring them. :~D )

    Haven't yet heard from Réka. Here's to hoping she's safe and sound and that we'll see her on Saturday.

    YJ is going to bring....let's see...french fries? Bring a bag or two of frozen ones and we'll cook them in my oven. (French fries go over good at BBQs in my opinion. :~D ) Since you weren't sure what to bring, I thought I'd volunteer you. I also have a wonderful cajun spice mix we can sprinkle on the fries, if you like. :~D

    I'm going to make hamburgers, asian style chicken nuggets, and chinese chicken salad, if that's ok with everyone. If you like, I can fix some BBQ beans, too.

    Thoughts?


    Reminder:
    DON'T FORGET TO BRING YOUR JOHN WILLIAMS MONEY

    Sounds pretty darn good so far. :D

    Though, I have a little question for everyone, who likes JELLO?

    I love Jello!

    And I will bring Ice Cream and Cool Whip. My husband NEEDS Cool Whip on the Cherry Pie.

    I can also bring something else, if you'd like. Like Potato Salad or something (not homemade thought!)

    And I LOVE Baked Beans! Make some, please!
