Ok everybody here is the thread for posting what you are planning on bringing. Since I am hosting I am bringing the grill. After that I will see what you all bring before deciding on what to make.

Also for those of you spending the night in Odessa we have several places to eat. There is Pizza Hut, McDonalds, Morgans, Subway, Cafe that is in downtown Odessa, El Caminos Mexican Restaurant, Sonic, Taco Johns, and there might be a couple others I'm missing.

I have the unopened katsup & mustard from the last RU so I'll bring them. As well as relish, pickles, etc. I can do the napkins/paper towels & plastic plates,glasses, & silverware too. I'll bring a waste paper basket and plastic bags for the deposit of the dirty plates, glasses, and silverware to bring home and wash for future RUs. I hate disposable dishes and such. The landfills are filling up way to rapidly nowadays. I'm sure someone will be glad to have the food scrapes. If not, I'll take them because my critters and compost pile will love them.

I have no idea what else I'll bring at this point. Probably fresh fruits and veggies.

Thanks EvaMae and birder for bringing those.

My dad wanted to pass along to those of you coming off of I-70 that there is a nice hotel in the next town east of here called the Camelot Inn in Higginsville. It also has a restaurant and is only 10 min from Odessa. There is also a Super 8 across the road.

Feldman's is the name of it. Right off of 131.

Here is Odessa's main site. www.cityofodessamo.com/

Here is a map of Odessa from Mapquest. Gives you a better idea of location. www.mapquest.com/maps/map.adp?searchtype=address&country=US&city=Odessa&state=MO

A winery. There are others in the area also. www.odessacountrywinery.com/

Powell Gardens is in Kingsville and is also where I work but is a great place to check out. Not that far from Odessa.

We also have some fishing holes. One is near my grandma and the other one is Lake Venita which is right off of 40 hwy. The park is on the other side of the lake.

Spicy chicken. A coworker brought some in to work last summer and had me try some. I didn't know it wasn't chicken til he told me. Then tetlytuna, another member on here, brought alligator from a restaurant in her town and we fried them up. If I remember correctly those also tasted like chicken. Wasn't too bad.

I can probably do chicken if there is enough grill or oven room. Last time we ended up cooking everything in the kitchen because it poured rain until about 2 or 3 in the afternoon.

Are any of you on here just members - not paying subscribers? I just learned last night that the Central Midwest Gardening is a closed forum. I'm sure I remember all of us clearly stating when we started this forum that we wanted it to be open to all. That is why we post RU threads on this forum instead of the RU forum. I'm just wondering if and when the forum when closed.

Whenever I see a new subscriber I dmail them and welcome them and direct them to our Central Midwest forum. I don't usually contact members though. Maybe I'll start doing that as I see them. I used to do that but always felt like I was trying to "sell" them a DG subscription. Guess I just felt if someone felt they could afford to and were truly interested in gardening, that they will subscribe; and then I try to get them to join in our forum.

Yes, we have fast food along with a restaurant and cafe. Here is the list:
Pizza Hut, McDonalds, Morgans, Subway, Cafe that is in downtown Odessa, El Caminos Mexican Restaurant, Sonic, Taco Johns, and there might be a couple others I'm missing. El Caminos is located in front of the Mall which is just west of the main part of town right off of Old 40.

More places to eat in Odessa: Countryside Dining, Buxton's BBQ. Countryside is a sit-down restaurant with courses or a buffet. Don't have to get dressed up but look nice if possible. Buxton's I have't tried yet but it has become a favorite in Odessa.

Another BBQ place is in Bates City and it's Bates City BBQ. This place operates on word of mouth and mouths have sent word to other countries. I have heard of people coming here from Japan to eat there. lol

I think you are right about the banana wafer pudding. Too soft to travel well. My tastebuds are waiting for the cake tho.

I think we need to see how much room Pepper's grandmother has in her freezer before we decide on the ice cream. Pepper, can you please find out for us? Kris said she will just make some homemade ice cream and bring it as her ice cream maker has to be frozen up to time of use, will only make one batch before getting too warm, and the ingredients have to be almost frozen too. Mine is just like hers so I'll do the same thing or pick up 1/2 a gallon at a store to bring. Kris and I both make good tropical ice cream. I made a really good p. butter/choc. batch last year.

Amanda, can you please check out the amount of space available in your grandmother's freezer(s)for the homemade ice cream just in case its finishing time isn't the same as when we are ready to eat it. And do we want it with the meal or later? I think later will end up with it being forgotten or most people too full. So I'm thinking we need to be making it while preparing the meal & offering it as part of the main meal. What do the rest of you think? I had ice cream ready for the last one but every one was so full that we never got it out of the freezer. The meal, door prizes, & swapping take a lot of our time and attention and then people have to start leaving one by one.. Just some thoughts and observations from past RUs.

I'm planning on going to PG tomorrow. I filled the van's fuel tank today so I have enough to get me thru til Friday. It is suppose to be in the upper 60s to low 70s tomorrow. It should be a great day for working outside in the beds.

Today was Geraldine's funeral. Family could go in for about 30 minutes before visitation the to see her. Her son called me and said Linda & I could come in. I don't think Linda got there in time. I left just as they were getting ready to close the casket & she wasn't there yet. I haven't seen her look so young and vital for many years. If her hair had still been flaming red she would have looked 40 or so. There was mostly family at the funeral. Word was passed around after the funeral home that everyone was welcome to come to the son's home after going to the cemetary. The daughter must have stayed up all night cooking as she was the only one who did any cooking. I stopped at a grocery store and got some sliced quick/sweet bread but that wasn't touched so I'll take it to PG tomorrow.

The wages from at least 2 Sat. nights of each month have been replaced now. I'll start cleaning house again for a person I used to clean for. Right now she can't afford me every week, but twice a month is good for now.

GOD bless and keep each of you.

I had to have posted this information in a wrong thread somewhere. Please do NOT bring any oil for deep frying if we are going to be doing any of that. I have the 1/2 gal. or more from the one last fall plus almost 3 qts. of canola oil. Just let me know if we are going to be frying. I can bring my fryer too.

Oh, yum, Linda. the cheese trays sound so good. I was raised on good cheeses and Jack loved them too. So our children were raised on different kinds of cheeses. I even made homemade pressed aged cheeses for a while. I still have the press and recipes. Pickles, both kinds of olives, oh, my, my taste buds are jumping for joy already. :>)
We are going to have to get together sometimes when I am at PG volunteering. How far is Holden from the Pittsville(?)turn off? You, know, that conveniece store/gas station turn off. Pepper works there you know so the three of us and anyone else who wants to join in could meet us there some afternoon after we get off.

I rarely drink anything but water myself. If I want pop I have some that I got thru the food bank today and last month. Thanks for asking. Some may want some.

leaflady I'm just about 5 to 7 minutes east of PG, about 21/4 miles east of pittville off 50 hwy. Just a stone throw away.

I love cheeses to and our favorite place to go is Oceola Cheese , Lots of different cheeses there. We used to grab some cheese and snack in the van while touring the lake . I would wind up with cracker crumbs and bits of cheese and always mustard on my lap on the trips, but it sure was fun.

I make an easy soft cheese w/ just cooking the milk and adding vinegar, super easy. add different things like chives for flavor

I would love to make the really good kind , the kind that ages. I need to get the right kind of cheese making stuff tho

I was going to volunteer this year at PG but with DD wedding coming up and work and gardening I seen no extra time. I wish I didn't need to sleep. I would love to work in the new veggie garden that will open next year.

I want to get away from colas and drink more ice tea, I get in habit of buying and drinking and it soon taste , well tastless : P . I like ice tea

Pepper you list is huge. Is it ok if I just give you money to chip in on the stuff you are bringing?
I will bring some finger food, I take tortillas, coat them with cream cheese and spicy peppers, roll them up and cut them in bite size pieces and something sweet (can never have too much sweet stuff).
