Forgive me for not posting here when i said was headed this way, DH took me off campin and we're back now, short trip, too hot and the fish weren't biting so he said lets go home LOL.

Do we have a theme that we're sticking to in the line of food like mexican, italian, or just what ever we bring?

I'm not comin from too far off, I can bring a hot dish, but haven't a clue to what to bring yet , it will be some sort of casserole or meat dish ,

Augusta, AR(Zone 8a)

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.

Judsonia, AR(Zone 7b)

that weather sounds delightful, same thing that snatched your energy snatched mine as well, I feel so drained

Augusta, AR(Zone 8a)

Just 2 weeks you guys. Please post what you'd like to bring. Thank you, Sheila.

I so hope that I am able to attend the swap. We have a few babies still at home but they are growing quickly!

I was thinking about bringing Chocolate Scotheroos or some type of sweet. But not to worry, I will swirl my magic wand over them to remove all calories. LOL

I will try to bring an Earthquake cake and a casserole of some description and a marinated garden vegetable salad

Judsonia, AR(Zone 7b)

what's an earthquake cake, sounds neat,

I've got this recipe for baked chicken tetrizini, it's a huge dish, i'm gonna bring that. maybe something else too

a salad of some kind sounds good


Augusta, AR(Zone 8a)

Kathy, earthquake cakes are delicious! They have devil's food chocolate cake, coconut, cream cheese, sometimes nuts, and others I can't think of, but man oh man they are so yummy.

You guys are making me hungry, lol. It all sounds wonderful ;).

Judsonia, AR(Zone 7b)

oh wow, i'm gonna have to to off the ol diet then for sure LOL

I am bringing water, but if any of you like something else please be sure to bring it. That way everyone gets what they want without having to spend alot of money =). I will have plenty of ice.

Northeast, AR(Zone 7a)

If I make it, I'll bring my banana split pie and maybe some rotel and chips. How does that sound?


Northeast, AR(Zone 7a)

Sheila, if you have some pitchers or gallon jugs, I could bring some Crystal Light packages and mix up some sugar free drinks. What do you think?

Augusta, AR(Zone 8a)

I have one of those igloo coolers that has a spicket.

North Little Rock, AR(Zone 7b)

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?

Augusta, AR(Zone 8a)

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 =).

North Little Rock, AR(Zone 7b)

YUM YUM YUM!!!!! Okay, I will bring choc. scots. But, if you change your mind or need anything else, let me know.

Judsonia, AR(Zone 7b)

I'm changing my salad to some sort of veggie dish since I have that in the freezer and won't have to buy anything. Hope this is ok.

Do we have plenty of dinner, desert, veggie, to go around with what we've posted here?

I'm still bringing the chicken tetrazini casserole and some veggie dish.

I saw alot of maybes posted that they might come, sheila do you have a definite amount? or is that kind of up in the air?

Augusta, AR(Zone 8a)

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.

You all have fun and remember to take LOTS of pictures!!!!
