2014 MAG Spring Swap: FOOD List

******* POTLUCK *******

Saturday, May 10, 2014 from 10am to 1pm
at Gardengramma's Gorgeous Encampment in Burtonsville (see link below)

KEY THINGS WE MUST DO (read carefully!):

BRING either something yummy, something to help eat yummy things with, or something (or somebody) to help prepare or clean up yummy things. For specific items, see below.
POST here what you plan to bring.
LEAVE NO TRACE - do not leave the food leftovers, if there are any, with Gardengramma (unless she specifically asks for them).

Non-food:

-Sticky nametags (for the plant swappers - so we can connect faces with names & screen names, now that we are swapping in the real world)
-Sharpie markers
-Charcoal and lighter fluid, if there will be grilling
-Utensils
-Napkins
-Plates
-Cups
-Large heavy-duty garbage bags for clean-up
-Paper towels
-Toilet paper
-People to do the grilling
-PEOPLE TO DO THE CLEANING UP (Remember: we must leave no trace of the plant swap.)

Food

-Things to drink
-Food with meat
-Food with no meat
-Food with plants (edible ones of course)
-Food with chocolate
-Dessert (with or without chocolate)
-Dessert (with or without plants)
-We'll try weird things in the name of science, plants, and....chocolate. Chocolate zucchini casserole? Endive ice cream? We're game.

*There are electric outlets for crockpots, a microwave for reheating, and a refrigerator for cold things.

I'll pick up some hotdogs and buns.
I'm hoping others will chime in, so we can get a rough headcount!

Heni, Larry, and Larry,

Thanks for hosting and organizing this event. Larry, I enjoyed chatting outside by the pond with you and especially your comment that you just love to see all the happy faces! That's what gardeners are when they get to switch out the old for some new and exciting plants. And Heni, it is always a delight and a joy to see your garden.

And MAGardenwebbers, thanks for all your kindness and especially for making sure I didn't leave without my purse (although, granted, I wouldn't have gotten far without car keys). Lisa
