    suzi and i had this idea for having us invade her house and eat all her food and generally make a mess of it in the summer.

    we have scheduled it for the one sunny evening in the summer and have already come up with food ideas for a SW based BBQ, red and blue and green things, character themed dishes... er, playing trivial pursuit and generally geeking out over suzi's collection of toys.

    so, what do you guys think?

    Note Martinas quote of ?the ONE sunny evening', as knowing our British summers, that?ll be about right. Yes, we thought it might be nice to have people over for a BBQ, with general fun and frivolity. :cool:

    We thought that we could try and have a themed BBQ, with various SW related food items, so get those thinking caps on??..?Lightsabre kebabs? (i.e. kebabs with the same colour food items on), ?Prune Face Punch?, ?Jabba Jelly?, ?Pizza the Hutt?, ?Bantha Burgers??there was even talk of a Millennium Falcon cake?

    I?ll have a think if there?s anything happening in the area, so we could make a proper meet out of it too?perhaps we want to leave this until after CE and do something in early August (which would be better for me tbh)

    I have room for people to stay (both indoors and outdoors!) so no need to worry about accommodation- just bring a sleeping bag/tent!

    Like I said in Newcastle, sounds like a great idea.

    One thing though, for us non-vegetarians, is it sensible to get 2 BBQs in, so we can do one veggie BBQ and another for meat (burgers/steaks/sausages etc)?

    Aye, well thought, Sie...you carnivores can have your own separate BBQ :p

    Perhaps people can bring an item of food each (or one sweet and one savoury) and bring their own drinks? We can sort stuff like that out nearer the time.

    As the meet gets closer we can divide up the people on non veggie and veggie lines. If we have a proper BBQ and a disposable then the one catering for the most people should be the proper one. Tis only fair.

    This sounds great, best time in August as no exams and summer holidays, however only day I cannot make is the 16th August but any other date would be great.

    p.s Non-veggie all the way, I NEED MEAT!!![face_cow] [face_chicken] [face_pig] ==P~

    I'm up for it.

    And that makes four vegetarians. Maybe we can cook the meat eaters and feed em to the local wildlife?

    I can't do the bank holiday either, and I don't think a few others can cos of the NW event there.

    Earlier in August or late July post-CE sounds like a better bet.
