EVENT ~ 2009 Spring MAG Swap
DATE ~ Saturday, May 9th, 2009
TIME ~ 10:00AM 1:00PM
LOCATION ~ Gardengranma's place

FOOD & STUFF LIST for the 2009 SPRING MAG SWAP

This is the secret to our great swaps - those who don't bring PLANTS bring FOOD. Preferably homemade and loaded with calories 'cause it's tough work doing all that trading and socializing. Extra points for food with chocolate. And if you have no plants and no talent in the kitchen, we still need supplies, and drinks, and ice, and potato chips.....

NON-Food Needs:
~ Self-adhesive labels for participants (nothing fancy; old floppy disk labels works well)
~ Charcoal and Lighter Fluid for Charcoal if you're planning to grill
~ a few non-gardening husbands to run the grill (makes 'em feel useful).
~ Utensils
~ Napkins and Paper Towels
~ Paper Plates-Paper or Plastic Cups
~ Large Heavy Duty Garbage Bags for Clean-up
~ (Let's give Gardengramma a break here:) Toilet Paper & Paper Towels.
~ Anything I've forgotten to list.

FOOD:
~ Beverages
~ Appetizers
~ Main Courses
~ Brownies
~ Other desserts
~ Condiments: Mustard, Relish, Catsup, salt & pepper.
~ Rolls if you're having hot dogs and burgers

Also, this is a great place to show off your very special recipes that your family won't touch, like lavender flavored shortbread or zucchini fudge or whatever - CAUSE IN THE INTERESTS OF BOTANICAL SCIENCE, WE'LL EAT IT!

Enjoy & Happy Gardening!
Jette

I'm bringing an Italian lemon cake instead of cheesecake, since I never did hear from Professor Dirt...

I don't think that there's room in the car for me AND the small people AND the food AND the plants. I wonder which I should leave at home :-)?


 o
RE: WANTED: food & stuff list for 2009 spring mag swap

Garbage bags! I'll bring them.
