    Ok, we have a change in the room. We have booked an ACTUAL HAll .......We will have Steamer Tables and a cold table filled with Ice to keep things cold. We do not have a Fridge or a Kitchen but the room is huge :)
    So- with that in mind.........

    We only have 4 days left-

    So far this is who I have down for bringing food:

    Main Meal
    Strawbary- Potato Soup,Baked Ziti,Salt Potatoes, Green Koolaide,
    Matrix-Jedi-Shepards Pie, Potato and sausage soup


    Sides

    Padawan_Drogon - Veggie Tray
    SWFREAKJPB-Taco Dip
    Ancient_Guardian-Mountain Dew

    Desserts
    Hothgirl - Green Shamrock shaped Rice krispie Treats
    Darth_Vishnu -Cookies
    karate-jedi- Cake







    So far this is all we have for food. Keep in mind we are feeding possibly 30 - 40 people......so make alot ;)
    We still need paper products and decorations as well....

    Entertainment:
    SW videos? Cant go wrong there.....board games?

    Strawbary SW & LOTR trivial pursuit,Jedi epic duels, SW videos

    Yeah, but snacks are good too ;) I didn't mean it as an actual dish (though it'd be interesting to sprinkle a couple on a cake [or something] in an exploding Death Star pattern [or something]).

    ...

    Or something...

    Is there a fridge in this room? I am thinking of bringing taco dip. I feel like eating eat and I need an excuse to make it. Its a cold dip with cream cheese and sour cream so it needs to stay cool for long periods of time. It should keep for the drive there I would think.

    We can always stick the dip in a cooler with some ice. That'll help. ;)

    I posted something a few days ago that doesn't seem to be here. I'll try again.

    I will definitely be bringing something, but I don't know what and I'm not a cook. I would rather not ask my wife to make something for an event she won't even be at. Sooo....any suggestions?

    Lesse....hrmm...food.....could go with a health dish, you know, that has greens...celery and broccili and such.



    ...


    ........

    I can't believe I just suggested health food >< Ah well. I like some health food ;)

    WE have discussed this in the yahoo I believe........the problem we are having is that:

    no we dont have access to a fridge and also everyone is meeting up several hours before the parade/party.
    I am offering to have everyone meet at my house before the parade and drop off your food there to be kept hot/cold till after the parade.


    I will suggest that someone make a cake? We dont seem to have that on the menu yet....
    Also we need paper products if we can have one person bringing plates/napkins/plastic ware that would be great.
    The dollar store is a great way to pick up what you need. :)

    Padawan_Drogon, I just throught of what you could bring that doesn't require making (well, not that much anyways), and RW said it before I could type it: veggie tray w/ a nice ranch-type dip. You can even buy this if need be. How about bringing one or two of those? Enough to feed 25 or so. Also, if your clan would be so kind as to make a really big salad, that would be perfect. You'll be the savior of all the health nuts.

    STAR-WARS-FREAK-JPB has stated he'll bring some taco-dip (still bringing this I hope?), so we need chips. Also, more chips and some dips would be good. Who's stepping up for this?

    Ancient_Guardian, want to be our plates/cup/bowls/spoons/forks/knives go-to-guy? Forgo a dish (if you wish), and get us about 50 of each of what I've mentioned. Hit the dollar store for all it's worth.

    Lastly, we need a cake. DA mentioned Pixie Stix, but that won't be enough sweets. strawbary and I are just about maxed out on stuff/money, so we need someone to take this one.

    I'm bringing some shepard's pie and potato and sausage soup (I know, more soup, but if it's bad weather you'll all worship me).
