Food for Fall '13 Swap

catbird(z7 AL)September 2, 2013

As Nelson suggested, I guess it is time to start thinking about food. [When ISN'T a good time to think about food?] I'm pretty flexible, as long as it doesn't require a lot of cooking or keeping something hot for a couple of hours of travel time. Does anyone have something in particular they want to have or would like to bring?

Is it finger food or things like hamburgers or casseroles?

I can bring hot dogs and/or smoked sausage and charcoal for grilling, if someone else can pitch in on the "fixin's".

(And Tony, I promise to "blacken" your 'dogs!)

I'll bring the fixins for Nelson's hot dogs (buns, mustard, catchup, etc.) plus plates, "sliverware", cups, and napkins. How many buns will we need, Nelson?

What 'cha think, catbird....30 'dogs? I'll grill some smoked sausage as well, maybe two packages. But 30 'dogs/buns should be sufficient.

Plus, Linda's bringing her chili, which I remember as delicious, so we can have chili dogs if we want to, in addition to what everybody else is bringing.

Oh. Also in addition to the slaw if nobody signs up to bring baked beans I have a sinful recipe involving Bacon that I got from the Pioneer Woman that I would be more than happy to bring as well. I love to cook!!

I'm new to this. If someone sees something that's being overlooked, I'll bring it, or maybe a few kinds of chips.

Anyone want to volunteer to bring chopped onions and bell peppers to grill with the hotdogs & smoked sausage? Oh!...and a bottle of hot sauce?? Texas Pete, etc.?

Also, I have found it helpful to bring a small cooler filled with ice in case we have left-overs that need to be divided and taken home.

Just random, fleeting thoughts....the only kind I have ;-D

I'll bring a jar of homemade Vidalia Onion Relish for the dogs, along with the chili. We're going to need bowls in order to eat these dogs!

I will bring ice, bottled water, diet cokes, banana bread, and whatever I think of before I hit grocery store. If anyone thinks of something missing, wants before morning let me know. I'm not a great cook.

Layne,

I was just thinkin' 'bout ice & bottled water. That seems to be the beverage of choice for most folks. Especially on a day like tomorrow - sunny and 89 degrees!

I may have to rent a canoe after all...

Thanks for the pitch in!
