I'll do baked beans. Did those last year and cooked them in my crock pot overnight, unplugged it and wrapped in a towel. It was so hot when I got to Jim's it didn't need to be warmed up again.

North Little Rock, AR(Zone 7b)

I can make lemon blossoms again...unless y'all want something else...

Ripley, MS

I will make--something !

Judsonia, AR(Zone 7b)

I thought I was gonna do something Sandra rofl. I will know closer to time what I will bring.

Ripley, MS

You can never have too much of something, we will both bring it !

Laceys Spring, AL(Zone 7a)

Since I'm traveling kinda far, I think I'll bring a dessert that will travel...maybe a key lime cake or something else I'll think about before now and then.

Ripley, MS

Elaine, I am not the host of the party, but I think everyone will agree that you should not worry about food as you are traveling so far. I am sure we will have plenty.

Laceys Spring, AL(Zone 7a)

Sandra, it's not THAT far, and I'm happy to bring a dessert. It will probably only take me about 3.5-4 hours to drive. Not bad at all. I found there's a Hampton Inn there too so that will be perfect. DH may come with me so that will work out great if we decide to do something in Memphis part of the day on Sunday.

Ripley, MS

Oh there are all those great places in Memphis---Gardens Oyvey, Dan West, Dabneys---lol

Montrose, AR(Zone 8a)

I can bring some coleslaw. I have a cold pack carrying case. What's BBQ without slaw?

Camden, AR(Zone 8a)

Do ya'll have any suggestions on what I need to bring?? I would bring something but it seems to be spoken for....... ^_^ So any ideas??

Judsonia, AR(Zone 7b)

We still need plates, silverware etc. but who ever brings that needs to make sure they are definitely coming. Don't want to be without these things at the last minute.

Olive Branch, MS

I'll pick up drinks. Water, Coke, Diet Coke, Sprite and if I remember tea.

Batesville, AR(Zone 7a)

I can bring the plates, silverware,etc. looking forward to seeing everyone

Judsonia, AR(Zone 7b)

I'm going to bring potatoe salad and some home made blackberry lemonaid

we have several salads and a couple of desserts, we have baked beans, so we have all the essentials.

Are we ready to eat?

yes I'm crazy, cause i'm up at 5:30 I had a horrible headache so, i'm up.

I'm hoping to have my living room finished this week, then i can unpack and be done with the remodel till next spring, We'll have to put off the back part of the house , Danny has no time, you know, priorities come first (deer camp) I'm going to book my pampered chef party and have it before they come in and strip the cabinets and repaint them. hopefully I can have a fall luncheon here also.

Laceys Spring, AL(Zone 7a)

Hey Kathy! I'm always up at 5:30 during the week. Sneaking in posts during work before anybody gets here. Anyway, I meant to ask if anyone has any nut allergies or anything before I decide for sure on the dessert to bring.

Hope we'll all check-in again before we all leave home so we can get last-minute things together. I'm happy to grab up things like paper plates, cups, forks, etc. I always have some extras stashed.

Little Rock, AR(Zone 7b)

I'm ready to eat!!!

Sorry you have a headache Kathy Ann! Hope it get better today!

Judsonia, AR(Zone 7b)

no nut allergies here!! I like all nuts rofl. lol

Ripley, MS

That is why we are friends !!!!!! LOL

Little Rock, AR(Zone 7b)

I even put pecans on our grilled cheese sandwiches

Montrose, AR(Zone 8a)

Blackberry lemonade sounds yummy!!!! No nut allergies here!!! Pecans on grilled cheese why I never heard of such but it sounds like it would be delicious I might just have to try it for breakfast....Hope you survived your headache KathyAnn. I woke up with one this morning too, ughh I think it prob has something to do with my baby being scared of thunder and he had to get in bed with us at 4am. Just not enough room in my bed for DH and I and a 50 pound pup. I think next time I'll opt for a lil lap dog lol...

Second picture is how he usually sleeps

Trish he looks pretty comfy!!!

I just chop up some pecans and sprinkle on the cheese before I put the second slice of bread on. Pecans are a standard stock item at my house. I freeze a bunch every fall. Don't think I've ever run out of pecans in the freezer!

Camden, AR(Zone 8a)

I can bring some bottled water...... and a dessert? or whatever?? I thought about deviled eggs... but I wasn't sure about them traveling such a distance - decided that might not be best. Anyone have any ideas for something else they would like to have??

Little Rock, AR(Zone 7b)

Genna I would just make some kind of desert - brownies, cookies, etc. Don't think it really matters what as even if someone brings something similar it will still be different. This group will eat anything!

Isabella, MO(Zone 6b)

I've been looking at the food list and have decided to bring some blueberry muffins. They will be something different and won't be sugary sweet. It seems the rest of you have all the bases covered! There is never any lack of food when this group gets together! LOL
