NOTE: This event is for Assistant Organizers and their Guests Only!

To all my Assistant Organizers! Thank you for another fabulous year! The Pleasure Palate Meetup group is a little over 4-1/2 years old, but what a success it's been so far. Between all of us, we have hosted over 1200 events (and still counting) with a minimum of 12 up to 20 events a month for PP members to choose from. How amazing is that! We're also over 800 members strong and that's a really testimony to your hard work at putting fun and interesting events together. Potential members take a look at our calendar and are excited to join because of the variety of what's on there.

Anyway, I'd love to take this chance to invite you to Cecilia's home for a holiday potluck and a foodie gift exchange. It'll be a wonderful chance for us to spend some time together, talk and do some connecting. Look below for all the info:

  • As you RSVP, please note whether you are going to bring an appetizer or an entree. I will be in charge of desserts.
  • Please feel free to bring 2 guests each, but they must also contribute to the potluck.
  • I'll have water, but you can also bring beverages to share
  • Gifts for the Foodie Gift Exchange can be anything food-related: chocolate bar, cookbook, frying pan, or whatever catches your fancy. I don't want to break the bank, but spend at least a minimum of $5.00.

Looking forward to celebrating part of the holiday season with you!

    Looks like my Butternut Squash Lasagna is coming along nicely. It may be a bit too tomatoey, because I made my own marinara sauce.

    Look for Cafe del la Olla to go with some Kalua to warm your holiday spirits.

    Besides those desserts, I'm bringing a filo baked burata cheese app. :)

    • Wasima

      Wow, that sounds divine - filo + burrata.

  • Andree

    I'll be bringing Orchid's Tangy Noodles.

  • Cecilia

    Hey folks, it's time to post your dish so we can even things out.

    I'm making banana pudding and a key lime pie.

    November 25, 2012

  • Ellen

    I'm planning on bringing a southern style sweet potato dish (could be considered something between a side or dessert, depending if you like it warm or cold)...

  • Robert

    I will bring pastries. I think Todd has to work that night at Target so it will just be me unless there's anyone on the PP List you want me to bring as a Plus One.

    November 16, 2012

  • Andi

    I'll bring Sriracha Mac n' cheese. If I end up bringing Jacob, we'll also probably bring a chilaquiles-like casserole.

      @Sklar: Thanks for the response. However, I'll await official "word" from Abby since it's been some time since I last communicated with her.

    Bummer. I will probably be on the east coast. :(. I bet everything will be fabulous.

    Please note that this event will be in our poolside clubhouse. There is a full refrigerator for cold or frozen foods. There is a microwave and 1 hot plate. No stove. So please bring foods that can be warmed quickly. And a bathing suit for the Jacuzzi if you are brave.

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.
