Potluck for Giving Thanks and Having Fun

  • Nov 19, 2011 · 4:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

With all the holidays coming up, thought it'd be better to meet before Thanksgiving. We can eat, talk, craft (maybe a crafty gift idea?), and who knows what else. Please RSVP either way and offer an alternative date if you can't make this date. This would be a wonderful opportunity to meet some of the newer folks and to cover some of the topics people are interested in (pottying, cloth diapering, slings, discipline, etc.). Hope we can make this happen. We'd love to see everyone! If you have any suggestions, questions or concerns please email [masked].

    I just uploaded a photo of the leaf candle holders ... We made them today ... They came out great!

    Anna, thanks for the tip with the iron! The leaves turned out beautifully. Unfortunately, my bad memory and the overwhelming cuteness caused me to forget about the craft altogether. :(

    Still, I hope folks do the activity with their littles, and if you do send me a photo!

    We talked about getting together on a regular basis to cook meals with other families. Any interest?

    Refreshing, invigorating, peaceful, calming and reassuring (all at once!) to spend an enjoyable evening with like-minded families ... Great food too!

    If you put your leaves between two pieces of paper towel and run a warmish (hotish, but not too hot,) iron over them they will be nice and flat and dry for tomorrow. cheers.

    Those leaf candle jars are so pretty! What a great idea! We just used up our collection of dried leaves the other day making placemats ... We will pick up some more today but not sure how dry they'll be by tomorrow ... We can bring some extra quart size Ball jars to share ... If anyone has extra dried leaves to share, that'd be great!

    In the spirit of fall, we'd like to try making some simple leaf-decoupaged candle holders. Please bring some pretty leaves (preferably dried) and some empty glass jars you'd like to use. We'll supply the homemade glue! Inspiration found here: http://gingerbreadsnowflakes.com/node/102

    I'm thinking couscous and some yummy bread and cheese.

    I was very much looking forward to this and to meeting everyone, but unfortunately we are battling a flu at our house and I don't think it would be a good idea to come! I hope you all have a wonderful time, sorry we won't be there. I hope to meet up very soon though!

    We'll be bringing a brie macaroni and cheese.

    So, food ideas anyone? I think we will be doing a kobucha squash soup and probably a quinoa salad. Maybe a after dinner treat if I get around to it.

    Anyone need help or have questions? Let me know! Look forward to seeing you all....

    Hey folks, I forgot to say that the potluck dishes should be vegetarian. Sorry if that makes it difficult for anyone. Feel free to just bring a drink if you need to!
