Sounds like you tried to have some fun. It has been so darn hot I can't even stay outside for long til I putter back into the house, lol. Something has snatched my energy. I have been so exhausted the last two days. The minute I got off work yesterday I pretty much went straight to bed. When I woke up this morning I got up, cooked breakfast, then went back to bed. I remember Judy saying almost this exact thing a week ago. I did dig some mulch for my gardens this afternoon, and I feel somewhat better getting something productive done.
Kathy, you are welcome to bring anything you like, just make sure to make plenty, and bring the recipe, lol. I am like you girl. I love to eat!! Can't wait til Sept 16th. I have checked future forecast, and it seems will be having cooler weather at around mid 80's so that's good.
I think the crytal light idea, is great! I am certain that I can bring a cooler for extra ice and drinks. Also, I may bring something that is not sweet. I am not certain what that will be. I may have to go to Sam's and see what they have that will look like I slaved over a hot stove and cooked for hours ;o) I have to work Friday...I have to be there at 6 a.m. (I think I need to retire again!) So, I will not be making anything really big or time consuming. Any ideas?
Duckmother, I will make a hot dish for you so you won't have to worry about it ok. Just make up some of those chocolate scotcheroos, if you can. They can be made in advance ;). Either way sweety just come on down. We will have plenty. I am thinking of making a potato dish with cheeses, garlic, butter, salt, pepper, oh and yes cheese, lol. My mom said she could make a huge pot of chicken in dumplings or my snl makes an excellent chicken soup. We will have plenty Duckmother, so don't even worry about it all all.
Just something to think about...if you bring your dish in a disposable container that is one less thing you have to worry about later =).
I have dmailed everyone that was a maybe more than once for a reminder the first time, then an rsvp the second, but I have not recieved an answer yet. Maybe later today because I mailed again last night. As long as everyone who comes brings a dish, then we should be fine on everything.
