Last year's Grokfeast was an impromptu hit! With a little advanced planning, we have a great chance of winning the grass fed cow prize. Let's meet, eat and have fun while we plan to make it happen for this year!

      But don't you enjoy shooting people Marla? ;)

      So glad your first event was a good one. You can bet there will be more events in our future!

    Is it crass for me to rate my own event so highly?!? I contribute the success to the abundance of extraordinary food as well as the opportunity to socialize with a group of intellectually stimulating people with dynamic energy!!!

    Excellent food, as always, everyone! :)

    Last Minute Thought...
    It's such a beautiful day that I'm thinking of setting up a table to eat outside. If anyone has lounge chairs to bring, they would sure come in handy.
    Of course I also have plenty of blankets/towels to spread on the ground for a traditional picnic! :-)

    Any thoughts as to what everyone is bringing to the Potluck? I made an earlier post with brunch suggestions but it will technically be lunch time when we meet. Let's begin a list so we have a well rounded assortment of paleo edibles :-D
    Lynette has dessert covered - Yum!
    I'll fill in the gaps once I know what everyone else is bringing
    Thanks and looking forward to seeing you all!

      I'm bringing kale salad. Hopefully, it doesn't blow away in the wind this time.

    • Cathy

      So glad you're able to join us!!! :-)

    Hi Marla and Matt, It's been a long time since I saw you at Chiro One with Dr. Sara. I'm looking forward to seeing you again. Hi Cathy, I'm looking forward to meeting you. I'm unsure what to bring right now. I'm going to look through Marla's Paleo Pigskin cookbook and find something delicious.

    I've never been to a Grokfeast or even heard of a Grok!

    See you tomorrow.

      Looking forward to meeting you too Judy. Also looking forward to something delicious from Marla's cook book. Can't go wrong with anything from Pigskin paleo! :-)

    Let me know if anyone needs to be picked up from the metra coming from the city! I'll be happy to do that- [masked]

    August 31, 2013

  • Marla S.

    I'll bring Cauliflower Rainbow Salad (from Pigskin Paleo) and Baked Chile Relleno (from Los Paleo)...just don't make me say Relleno out loud ;) - btw the chile relleno is similar to an egg bake

      OK, I'm salivating now...

    The weather being so hot lately so I'm just gonna bring something light, Chicken with Apple and Spinach Salad. Sound Good? I think so...

    • Cathy

      Sounds DELISH!

      August 30, 2013

  • Lynette G.

    What is everyone bringing? I'll make paleo cookies and.... Maybe a sweet potato/honey/walnut dessert.. Can you tell I have a major sweet tooth?! Unless its a better idea to bring some entree maybe beef-chili.

  • Lynette G.

    Sorry! Change of plans; no more
    Lakehouse with amigos. We'll be there! Phew, lucky there were exactly 2 spots left for us! We can give anyone a ride from the city but not back since we made plans to stay in the suburbs afterwards.. And are also heading up early around 9-10am to pick up my raw milk... But there's definitely room in my car so just let me know!

    August 29, 2013

    • Cathy

      YAY!!! So glad you'll be here :-) :-) :-)...

      August 29, 2013

  • Hope

    I'm also not 100%, but would love to make it and meet everyone! Is anyone planning on driving from the city?

    August 20, 2013

    • Lynette G.

      I'm driving from the city early in the morning if you want to join, otherwise I'm willing to pick anyone up from the metra. Milwaukee north line leaves union station at 10:35am on Sunday and I can pick you up from Lake Cook stop at 11:23am. Let me know if you're interested!

      August 29, 2013

  • Amanda W.

    Anyone driving out from the city? Or want to pick me up at a Metra stop nearby?

    August 28, 2013

    • Lynette G.

      If you want to head up early with us, you're welcome to (I'm picking up raw milk in the burbs prior to going to Cathy's) otherwise I can pick you up from the following metra stop: Milwaukee north line (from union station) Lake Cook stop. Leaves from union station at 10:35am and arrives at lake cook at 11:23am where we can easily meet you and head to Cathy's from there!

    awesome, hmmmm...what to make?

    August 27, 2013

    • Cathy

      Welcome Roger and Excellent question! I was thinking the same thing and thought it wise to ask people what they're bringing to be sure we have a well rounded menu. In case anyone is looking for suggestions...Egg bake or frittata, fresh fruit, something dark and leafy green, hash brown sweet potatoes and of course...MEAT! I'll wait to hear what everyone is bringing and fill in the gaps. At the risk of being redundant, any requests for muffins?

      Great, let me think on this and get back to you.

  • Lynette G.

    :-( Manuel and I won't be able to make it; last minute plans to go to a friends lakehouse for Labor Day weekend. Bummed cuz I was looking forward to this! It'll be fun, and I'll ask for updates!

    August 27, 2013

    • Cathy

      Darn! You'll both be missed. Must admit, a lake house sounds like a little slice of heaven - enjoy and let us know if you have any Grokfeast ideas!

    Yep, I'm going to try to squeeze in this time. This is a perfect timing for Sunday for me. Sunday is Funday!

  • Amanda W.

    I'm looking for a carpool out to Cathy's. I live in Lakeview, but am happy to meet in some mutually convenient place. Also happy to chip in for gas.

    Sounds like a great time, but I will unfortunately be out if town. Have a great time and I look forward to hear about the big plan!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
