Broken Records

  • Sep 13, 2013 · 7:00 PM

My broken record theme is - this group is about cooking together, this IS NOT a pot luck event. Embrace the chaos and cook on site!

NOTE: Her road changes names as it crosses the Middletown/Middlefield town line. Rockfall Road and Hubbard Street are one in the same road. there's a painted crosswalk in front of their drive way and a table on their porch.


I, Caryl, have moved, and in the process I broke my ankle, so my friends had to jump in and help me finish the move. When someone repeats something over and over (sic) we sometimes say they sound like a broken record. Given the number of times I've moved, and the number of times I've broken a foot, and the number of times I've relied on my friends; all since I came to CT, I'd say I qualify as a broken record.

 Are you so young that you don't understand the saying "sounds like a broken record" ? Are you so young that if I said, "it sounds like a scratched cd", you'd ask what a cd is? Are you so old you don't understand why some wouldn't know what a broken record sounds like?

Who are your favorite record breakers? What records have you broken? What do you do that at makes you "sound like a broken record?

Every month a new crazy theme! Lots of fun and lots of food and drink. RSVPs open 30 days prior to the event and these dinners fill up quickly. Remember there are no rules. Caryl will email the address to those attending the Wednesday before the dinner. Be sure to RSVP early as we always fill up quickly. Do RSVP though, especially if it gets you on the waiting list. Usually the waiting list people get to join us for dinner. Plan to cook on site, unless your recipe takes 45 minutes or more to prepare start to finish. Because the oven opens and closes often baked goods (excepting cookies) are best done ahead of time. Remember this isn’t just a potluck; this is about sharing the pleasure of cooking and food, and learning from one another while drinking wine 'n stuff and having great conversations. Bring what you'd like to drink plus a little to share.

      It was really nice to meet you on Friday. I loved your salad. Would you mind sending me the recipe?

      Glad you liked it Judy. It was really simple. I used three bags of pre cut cabbage shreds. The dressing which was more than enough to cover that amount is 1/2 cup vegetable oil...1/2 cup sugar...1/4 cup apple cider vinegar...1 tablespoon soysauce...1/2 teaspoon sesame oil (some people leave that out but I love it).....I warm the dressing for a few minutes on the stove to make sure the sugar dissolves. Pour it over and that's it. I put in chopped roasted peanuts but you can use almonds or walnuts. Sometime, if I have it I add a little chopped mint but I did not for the one you had. Give it a whirl....Let me know..

    Met some really great people tonight. Great conversation and incredible food. My GPS was completely baffled by the area, I had to show it how to get home.

    Sorry I won't be able to make it after all. I've come down with a wicked cold and don't want to pass it on to anyone else. Hope to make the next event!

      Yes, if you plan to drink something you need to contribute, not rely on others!

    Looking for a location! If you want to host, are comfortable with 20 people cooking in your kitchen, and have attended more than 6 of our in house events you qualify as a host. Let me know if you'd like to host this September dinner.
