    I do appreciate those of you who have KINDLY offered to bring tables and chairs for the party. And we are looking forward to the POT LUCK!!

    A few notes:

    TABLES & CHAIRS
    Please contact me so I may acquire said tables and chairs AHEAD OF TIME so I am not setting up in the middle of the party. With forward planning, I can pick up said tables and chairs. I prefer to have everything READY by the time everyone walks in the door to make it a more enjoyable experience for everyone- and so we have a place to put all the yummy dishes!!!

    POT LUCK


    MEALS
    Also, when bringing your dishes, please do not make a dish to serve 40 or 50 people. Please make a single or double of a recipe to serve approx 12-18 people. Last year the selection was truly amazing, a serving size was really almost like a tasting, and there was an incredible amount of waste afterwords because everyone graciously made dishes to serve 40 people. Desserts, of course, are the exception!

    We will also be able to accomodate slow cookers/warmers. Please bring extension cords.

    Please bring your dishes SERVE READY. This means ready to open and go. We will be HAPPY! to warm something up.

    DISHES
    Also bring SERVING UTENSILS please!! We have some but last year ran out because people brought dishes with nothing to serve them with, and I only have so many spatulas.

    Be sure to LABEL your serving utensils and dishes. I am happy to wash them afterwards but labeling will help to return items to their rightful owner.


    PLEASE contact me if you have any questions or concerns or prefer to drop something off ahead of time. We are looking forward to the party!!

    I will be attending. Food TBD (I need to check my recipes).

    I have a card table and 4 chairs if you can use them, Anna. Let me know when it's convenient for us to get together for transport.

    If anyone has a couple extra boxes, we can use them to transport the donations for the food pantry.

    We can if some one brings the DVD or a digital copy!

    Also, looks like we need more MAIN COURSE dishes... If you are concerned about expense for a Main course dish, perhaps consider going in with someone else...

    I'll switch from two desserts to one dessert with some mini meatballs with marinara sauce.
    I agree, with Anna, we don't need any more desserts!

    Add my Padawan to the attendee list. I will bring my copy of the Holiday Special if anyone wants! I might warn you, video quality IS questionable at best, but it is still just as horrifying! :eek: The copy I have has the episode of The Muppet Show with the cast of Star Wars making an appearance!

    There is a small chance I will be there. But for right now I'm thinking no as I will likely be out of town. Hope everyone has fun though! :)
