Comfort Food Night

  • Apr 28, 2009 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is no longer available

Hi,
Given our economic climate, let's enjoy some down home, nothing fancy, good old American food! No exotic recipes, or gastronomical education, just good eating! :-)

We'll all share the shopping, cooking, and clean up. We'll cook them up and chow down at my place in Bay Park.

You buy & bring from a list of pre-approved ingredients totaling about $10, enough for 10 people.
Plus donations to the house host (me) of $2 cash for misc. ingredients.

Menu & shopping assignments is now posted in files section of this website.
Chicken Pot Pie, Salad, Lemonade, Corn Bread, and Brownies & Ice Cream! Cheese dishes forbidden. Terribly sorry, I don't like cheese! Just keep it on the side if you must! :-)

Goal is to get gather around 6:00PM, prepare and cook for an hour or so starting no later than 6:30PM.
Ready to serve by 7:30PM.
Finish up by 9:30PM.

If this works out it could become a regularly scheduled weekday event. Sorry, NO MAYBE's. You'll need to commit or the meal will be missing key ingredients for the rest of us. And that would be bad! :-(


More details to follow, just a waiting list for now.

    For a loose plan, it worked really well. Everyone showed with the needed ingredients and we kept pretty much on schedule. And it tasted GREAT! Fun too. Thanks all!

    The food was incredible. A very comforting, family-like meal around the dining table was enjoyed by all.

    I've been on the waiting list for 2 weeks, I think, and got an email this morning about a spot opening up. I went on the site and I was still on the waiting list so maybe someone else already took this spot. It's been difficult signing up. I tried to sign up when there were 0 people and it just defaulted to the waiting list. Anyhow, I am giving up and I hope you all have a nice time.

    Your menu sounds great! Other ideas might be baked chicken, cherry cobbler, baked sweet potatoes (not candied), homemade rolls, etc.
