Hey everyone, I'm celebrating the end of the semester and my return to normal life. I will be hosting June's potluck and our theme for June is roll 'em!

Open to creative interpretation, roll 'em will feature foods that are rolls, rolled in something (either to wrap around or just to coat in), rolled up to be eaten, or are served rolled up in some way whether they are normally rolled or not.

I am really looking forward to catching up with old friends and making some new ones around some good food.

Address details will go out 3 days before, the day before and the morning of. I will also post my phone number here that morning and leave it up until just after the event.

Do comment with what you might bring as you start deciding so we can all kinda strategize on the meal we're putting together.

Alright AAF, I'll let y'all do what you do best, get your roll on and bring it! :)

  • Celena

    Costco didn't have my pinwheels, so I'm bringing mini cordon blue "rolls". Looking forward to seeing everyone.

    June 14, 2013

  • James N.

    So sorry I'm going to miss... We have unexpected guests coming from out of town and they just let us know

    June 13, 2013

    • Nefertiti

      Awww James, I guess we'll catch you next time.

      June 14, 2013

  • Mary Kay K.

    Looking forward to seeing everyone again. I am coming to the end of my dissertation so am REALLY looking forward to socializing too. Neffi, still don't know what I am bringing. I know I will do my usual throwing something vegan and gluten free together tomorrow! :)

    June 14, 2013

    • Nefertiti

      Knew I could count on you Kay! :) Your 'throw together' dishes are always deeeelish!

      June 14, 2013

  • Linda K.

    I'll bring piquant meatballs in birthday giftwrap. (The meatballs rock....and roll.)

    1 · June 13, 2013

  • Priscilla T.

    Yea! I'm confirmed! Any thoughts on what I should bring? I would like to bring a healthy vegetable.

    June 11, 2013

    • Priscilla T.

      Actually I will bring some ham and cheese roll-ups instead!

      June 14, 2013

    • Nefertiti

      Those are pretty easy too! Nice choice :)

      June 14, 2013

  • Priscilla T.

    Actually, I will bring some ham and cheese roll-ups instead!

    June 14, 2013

  • Lisa

    Bringing cookies.

    1 · June 12, 2013

  • Celena

    I'll probably bring deli style pinwheels.

    1 · June 12, 2013

  • Cheryl

    I have to back out, I have to get my girls at 4:30pm, no need to start something I can't finish.

    June 6, 2013

    • Nefertiti

      Sorry to hear that Cheryl, hope to catch you at the next one!

      June 12, 2013

  • Linda K.

    I cook well, and I enjoy it. I'm a newbie and just got invited. What do we need to round out the menu?

    June 10, 2013

    • Nefertiti

      Keep an eye out Linda, I'm about to start compiling what we are each bringing in the description section above so you can get a feel for what there is so far. If you want to decide early, something main-dish like is never bad. I was literally google-ing veggie names + 'wrap' or 'roll' to get ideas :)

      June 12, 2013

  • Janet

    Unfortunately John and I will not be able to attend. We ran into a scheduling snafu.

    June 11, 2013

  • Tammy

    Aww Janet, we'll miss you!

    June 11, 2013

  • Lee M.

    If I get off the waiting list, I will try to bring egg rolls, or a similar motif.

    1 · June 11, 2013

  • Priscilla T.

    So am I confirmed to come or not. Just let me know!

    June 10, 2013

  • Janet

    Would there be any interest in having a wine specialist show up to provide a wine tasting at the Meet up? A friend of mine is planning to be in town then.

    1 · May 30, 2013

  • Priscilla T.

    I thought I joined to come days ago! (See my posts). But I guess I didn't "officially" RSVP, but would still like to come!

    May 28, 2013

  • Tammy

    Priscilla, have you RSVP'd yet?

    May 24, 2013

  • Priscilla T.

    I'll probably bring something in the veggie group, or a salad.

    May 24, 2013

  • Priscilla T.

    First time with this, but sounds like a lot of fun, and meeting some great people! I'll be there, and will bring something good!

  • Cheryl

    Is that Father's Day weekend? Hmm no kids I should be able to make it. Don't know what I'll bring yet.

    1 · May 22, 2013

  • kizzy

    Why is it that every time I want to attend I have something going on. This event will be going on during our 1st Annual Father's Day event at Tom Brown. If I can come after 6pm I will be there, but I'm sure the food and crowd will be gone by then (sad face :~() Maybe next time!

    Does the new guy have to do anything?

    1 · May 18, 2013

    • Nefertiti

      Ummm Rahul, as Kay mentioned the new guy customarily does the dishes, and uh... brings a full round of drinks for everyone else and.... uh..... wears a brightly colored Hawaiian shirt... yeah (everyone else, just play along ;).

      Thnx, Laura! Ya'll are some sweet people. That Meetup scene is a lot of fun :-)

  • Tammy

    Donna, it looks like you got a +1 already. Am I right in guessing that's your husband? Although we like to know who is coming, people frequently use the +1 for spouses, children or friends.

    May 16, 2013

    • Donna D.

      Hi Tammy, yes I will be bringing my husband-Fred. We are excited to meet everyone. I have been in Tally for a little over 2 yrs. and we would like to meet new friends,

      1 · May 16, 2013

  • Donna D.

    Sounds fun!! Would love to join the fun!! Will be on vacation 6/22 to 6/29 but able to attend other days.

    May 10, 2013

    • Nefertiti

      Hi Donna, it's always preferred that people rsvp for themselves. That way they can manage their own rsvp, and join in on the conversation. Also they tend to have a better time at the event because people kinda 'know' them from being here on the boards :)

      May 15, 2013

    • Donna D.

      Thanks for explanation. Just thought would be fun to bring my hubby too!

      May 15, 2013

  • Dave

    Don't know exactly what I'll be bringing yet, but assuming they're still going by June, it'll be rolled in Swiss chard leaves :)
