Dinner @ Dev's

  • July 2, 2013 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Who else in the group has a fluid schedule?  I know everyone in the group cooks during the week--at one point or another.  So, let this be the day you cook one dish, and add it to the Meetup for a 4-course meal.

It's a weekday dinner for 10.

Basically, when someone posts what they're bringing, pay attention.  Bring something different and something that complements.  That does not mean if Person A brings peas, that you should bring carrots.  Ha!  : )  It's more like pesto chicken and cilantro rice, or lasagna and garlic bread, or fried chicken and greens, or angel food cake and egg nog ice cream, or...you get the drift--until we balance courses for a 4-course meal. Please post your contribution with your RSVP.

Appetizer(s)/Soup/Salad:

antipasta fatto da Elyse

salad fatto da Steve

Entree(s):

Mario Batali's Ragu alla Clemenza fatto da Victor

chicken cari fatto da Becky

pizza fatto da Nina

Pasta alla Chescca fatto da Debra

Side Dish(es):

Beverage(s):

te fredo fatto da Dev

white chocolate frappes fatto da Dev

mocha cappuccino fatto da Dev

Dessert(s):

chocolate biscotti fatto da Todd

spumoni fatto da Clara

It's a weeknight.  If you have to get back home, you will go back full and ready for bed, with a packed Tupperware for lunch the next day.  If you're livin' un-time-bound, feel free to stay for a movie (whatever I pick up from the library, or whatever you choose to bring) or gaming (I'm a board game fanatic!).

Reminder on what to bring:

  • one potluck item per attendee (If you are bringing a guest, please make sure to indicate what you are bringing for each person.)
  • If you are picking up something from the store, please spend at least $15.  We prefer that you cook or bake.
  • your own serving platter and utensil(s)
  • Water and coffee/tea will be provided.  Other beverages should be brought to share.
  • Ziploc bags or plastic containers to take home leftovers

Event address and contact info will be sent to those RSVPd "yes" prior to the event.

    Delicious Italian food and great fun on a weeknight. Thanks Dev for organizing and being such a great host at your home. Maybe it's time for me to have game night again at my house.

    Thoroughly enjoyed having you all in my home. I love our group because #1 everyone can cook--even when we make guinea pigs out of one another. Lol. #2 I have a great time at each event due to the camaraderie built through our dynamic. Thanks for the yummy contributions, the wonderful stories, the great laughs, and your warm presence. Let's do it again!!

    Not sure I can get there before 6:30 PM, so let me know if that's okay or not.

    June 20, 2013

    • Dev

      It's just fine Todd. I'm trying something new with the weekday meals. We'll adjust as necessary. But that must mean you're not bringing the appetizers... ; )

      1 · June 20, 2013

    • Todd K.

      I'll bring a new dessert for me - chocolate biscotti!

  • Pat R.

    Sounds great. What to bring?

    June 20, 2013

    • Dev

      Pat, no one has yet posted. Whoever commits, that's the food genre the group will follow.

      June 20, 2013

  • Victor

    Dev, I'm tentative right now, but will reconfirm next week and change my RSVP accordingly.

    June 20, 2013

    • Dev

      Victor! I miss you! Feel the hugs! OOO I know weeknights are tough, but I'm trying it out as my weekends are always booked.

      June 20, 2013

  • Ofelia

    sorry to miss the fun but I be then in Montana

    June 20, 2013

      June 20, 2013

  • Elyse G.

    Don't know what I will bring as yet. Stay tuned

    June 20, 2013

    • Dev

      No worries Elyse. Someone will get the ball rolling, then we'll all have to roll in that food genre's direction.
