Thanks-Fur-Giving Dinner

  • November 23, 2013 · 3:00 PM
  • Thanksgiving house for 2013

UPDATE!!!!!

With less than a month away, I managed to work out a deal with my parents in letting us use their house this year for our dinner! It is much larger, and there is more open space,sitting areas, and the kitchen is larger too! Easy to walk around and socialize with everyone.

There is _No_ requirement of $10, However, any compensation you are able to offer would be appreciated for my parents allowing us the opportunity to use their space and their time. =) 

I will have a donation jar out for people to donate money for my parents's hospitality.


ALSO! its less than a month away! I need people to tell me what they want to bring, we need Desserts and sides,

 
This is what i have so far:

1. Turkey 

2. Potatoes  

3. Stuffing

4. Dinner Rolls

5. Mac n' cheese 

6. Corn chips

7. Pumpkin pie (more is good but so are other fruit pies)

8. Baked Apples with Pumpkin pie filling

9. Soda

10. Blueberry pie

11.Mulled Apple Cider

12. Snack platter of some kind

13. Green Bean Casserole

14. Candied Yams

15. Ginger Bread Cookies

16. pumpkin spice Scones

Please PLEASE contact me ASAP and tell me what you would like to bring, or if you don't know what to bring, ask me and I can tell you what you could do!!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Last year's dinner was a huge success! Almost didn't have enough food for everyone because so many showed up!

 Anyway,I was thinking perhaps we could do another Thanksgiving dinner for those who may not have Thanksgiving this year to spend with family, or just to have a nice social dinner with other fellow furries. I would provide at least one turkey and the mashed potatoes, might need help with a second one this year. 


This will be a potluck as well to share with everyone, so you can bring other side dishes, and pies for dessert.  Also! Those who are coming I would like to request you to bring at least one bottle of sparkling cider for the group dinner (any flavor works)  and other drinks (like soda, however I would prefer cans as opposed liter bottles, mostly because what ever we use will be deposited back, and all deposits will go straight back into the meet up fund)....just contact me and let me know what you could bring, or I can tell you what we will need to make this a great dinner! Let me know if you are interested! :)


If you can provide as well, extra tables and chairs will be much appreciated! we've got less than a month to plan this event, but I am asking everyone to please help out by getting in contact with me for food ideas and assignments or something, and we can make this an even MORE successful dinner than last year!!!!

    Will there be an oven (conventional) available so I can put my green bean casserole in for about 7 minutes to finish heating up?

  • Cani L.

    I was told everyone that came last year loved my cooking, so I'll be coming back for an encore! Slightly different seasoning rub this time, but it'll still be just as juicy as the last bird. :)

    October 28, 2013

    • Serena

      probably the latter

      November 1, 2013

    • Serena

      but i would like other options

      November 1, 2013

  • Yarek

    Hmm tempted to attend, I have to see what my schedule is like during that time, the family thanksgiving tradition isn't what it used to be, though most of us still go to a big gathering at a local church. we don't actually belong but my grandmother started a tradition of decorating for the church every night before thanksgiving many years ago so we keep that going in memory of her. but as I saw in comments this would happen the week before, so maybe would attend, I don't live super close but if a friend would want to go then could ride with

      If you can get your self to a bus or max toward gresham, someone can pick you up at the station =)

      November 1, 2013

  • Willysilver

    I will be there. I can do a decent Mac 'n' Cheese with a few extra items mixed in (meat, veggies) or just plain otherwise. I'll bring some corn chips, too, unless we get others wanting to bring them. Or if you (Serena) have any other suggestions...
    *** Willysilver *** Raccoon licks his lips ***

    October 24, 2013

    • Serena

      sounds good to me! i'll add it to the list

      October 24, 2013

  • Serena

    if we can get 20 people, there a chance if you pay at least a $10 non refundable deposit, we might be able to rent my parents' house for the day, its much larger and homier than our place and the kitchen is bigger too, what do you think?

    September 8, 2013

    • Serena

      stick some candles in the turkey?

      October 24, 2013

    • Faye I.

      lol that would actually be pretty funny, not even my own family has done that XD

      October 24, 2013

  • Willysilver

    I'll let my boss know I need that weekend off. I'll know for sure soon.
    For food, I'll bring some mac 'n' cheese with some extra goodies (meat, etc.) mixed in. A donation will be made as well.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
