    I've sent my phone number to everyone who has posted below that they are attending and/or what they'll be bringing. There are several in the RSVP YES list that have not posted below. If you plan to attend, please let me know and I'll email you the phone number.

    I'll bring a vegetable side-dish, like ratatouille. Of course, that's subject to change depending on what's available in the gatden/farmers market.

      Now that I see all the cucumbers and tomatoes in the garden, I would like to bring a fresh Greek Salad....still a vegetable side-dish, just raw (and healthy!!) Yum! See you tomorrow. :-)

    Hopefully you all have received the address by now. You can reply to this message and I'll send our address to you. Also, we WILL have the dinner rain or shine. We can seat everyone inside if weather doesn't cooperate. Looking forward to seeing you all!

      Jan - could you also post your phone number?

      Jan: perhaps you can send your phone number out via email to those who RSVP'd "yes" instead of posting it here for all the world to see? Just a thought.

      August 23, 2013

  • Jennifer

    Jan: what's your phone # for people who may get lost?

    Hi Jennifer... No, I have not received the address.. and If I don't get it by noon, I may have to cancel. I need to know at least 24 hrs. in advance. My agenda is a bit crowded...

      I think my email box gobbled up the address because it's Thursday, and I do not see it anywhere. Would you mind sending to me again please? (Thank you!)

    Conflict with a family obligation prevents me from attending. I will miss all those wonderful gustatory creations.

    August 22, 2013

  • Sara

    Jennifer - I also meant to say tomato jam and biscuits sounds just yummy! So does the soup and/or salad.

    Old World Cucumber Salad; and let's not forget dessert....Cornmeal Almond Cake with Melon and Berries

    August 21, 2013

  • Linda L.

    All that food sounds soooooooooo good. Too bad I have to miss this one! Looks like a good turnout, too. Maybe someone can post pictures so that I can see what I missed :) Have fun!

    August 21, 2013

  • Sara

    Jennifer Still having trouble using this site. Last week I posted I would bring a tomato cobbler. Since you are bringing tomato jam and biscuits, I think I'll bring a zucchini gratin. So, from me zucchini gratin and a couple bottles of red. See everyone. Sara

    August 21, 2013

  • Jennifer

    I just made some tomato jam. I was just contemplating bring that with homemade basil biscuits. Other options: tomato basil soup or a kale/chard/plum salad. Anyone want to input here on what sounds best?

    August 20, 2013

  • jan b.

    Hi Chris,
    That sounds delicious! A little hard to estimate on the wine -- if everyone likes Sangria, then another bottle of wine couldn't hurt. My plan is to make two "batches" - one batch the day before, as well as get the other going with fruit and liquor and we can top it off with wine before dinner. PS -- I still have your items from last year that were left behind :)

      re. the wine: Will you need only one bottle, having already used one in the early batch of sangria? or should I bring two?

    Is there anyone who I could catch a ride with? I live in NE, near 77th & Sandy.

      Nope, net yet.

  • Jennifer

    Many of you might be still pondering what you want to make for Saturday, if you could post on the site as soon as possible what you are bringing that would be super helpful to everyone attending as well as our hosts, the Byerlys. Currently we have 26 people attending the event. We have six (6) more open spots for this dinner. On Wednesday evening, I will email out the address to everyone who has RSVP'd. The dinner is out in Canby at the Byerley's beautiful home. It will be an outside dinner in the yard. Please pack a sweater as it does get chilly at night. I will remind you all of this when I email out the address. Please bring other refreshments to share along with your dish. The Byerley's are generously providing lemonade and Sangria for the event.

    See you all Saturday!!

    Thanks.. I don't like leaving details to the very end.. ~

    August 20, 2013

    • Jennifer

      We do this as the address is private and random people don't just show up. We have 6 more spots open too as there are sometimes last RSVP's and cancellations.

    Joining the group. I will bring a non-meat entree or appetizer depending on what I find at the Market. I'm planning to include organic tortillas from Three Sisters Nixtamal..

    August 19, 2013

  • jan b.

    Gretchen, how about Sauvignon Blanc or a dry Riesling? Almost anything works in Sangria!

    August 19, 2013

    I'll bring the white wine for the sangria. What do you prefer? I'll also pick up cheese as a appetizer. (Sorry to be so sinple, but there's something going on right before, so there's a time crunch.

  • jan b.

    I've decided to make a chicken/spaghetti squash/pesto/tomato/zucchini dish. Will decide how to throw it all together later! I'm thinking of making a summer fruit sangria....if anyone would like to bring a bottle of white wine to add to it, please do!

    August 17, 2013

  • Elizabeth T.

    I will do an app and dessert-still working out the details!

    For a protein, perhaps an assortment of kebabs threaded with bell peppers, nectarines, onions, or whatever.

    I'm still deciding between a savory, baked vegetable or a dessert.

    Can't wait!

    August 13, 2013

  • jan b.

    Hi! We are really looking forward to hosting this dinner. Does anyone know what they will be bringing? Any ideas for meat/protein dishes in keeping with this theme, or should we go vegetarian? Weather permitting, we will be eating outside, so remember to bring a sweater or light jacket for the evening. See you all soon!

    August 13, 2013

  • Jennifer
