Winter Potluck & Movie

Have a favorite dish you'd like to share? Or maybe a new recipe you'd like to try? Let's get together to show off our culinary creations, swap recipes, and enjoy a delicious meal, compliments of your fellow MWSM chefs! Would you like to come but you're not a cook? No worries-- we won't judge you if you bring something that's not homemade! :) Full kitchen facilities will be available in case you need to put something in the oven, microwave, or fridge.

** I will provide the room, movie, silverware, plates, napkins, glasses, and popcorn. I might also make or bring a beverage, but I'll wait and see what everyone is bringing first.

Ideally, I'd like to have a variety of appetizers/salads, some main dishes, and of course, desserts. Wine and/or other adult beverages are also welcome and encouraged.

** PLEASE INDICATE WITH YOUR RSVP WHAT YOU PLAN TO BRING SO WE HAVE A NICE VARIETY **

After our stomachs are fully stuffed and satisfied, you're invited to stay for a movie and popcorn!

Here are some suggestions for movies that are available for rent at my local RedBox. I selected a few that I personally have not seen, sound interesting and are overall well-reviewed. Votes for which one you'd like to see?

Wanderlust (Comedy, Jennifer Aniston, Paul Rudd)
Hope Springs (Comedy, Meryl Streep, Tommy Lee Jones)
Trouble With The Curve (Drama, Clint Eastwood, Amy Adams)
People Like Us (Drama, Chris Pine, Elizabeth Banks)
Arbitrage (Drama, Richard Gere, Susan Sarandon)

    I really enjoyed the recipes and the movie, but chatting and getting to know everyone was the best part. Nice to meet you all! It was an awesome evening.

    Fun time. Hope to do it again some time. Does anyone like games? A food and game night could be fun too :)

      Hi Amanda, thanks for offering! Yes, we could use a main course type of dish. Something with chicken perhaps? I personally love spicy food and/or lots of seasoning. Whatever you could whip up would be great!

    Was any decision made on the movie? I'd love to see Arbitrage - heard great things. Or Hope Springs, or Magic Mike. Really not interested in the Eastwood baseball movie though.

      Do you have a delicious gluten free dish you'd like to share? Perhaps you could find a good recipe- your dietary restrictions shouldn't prevent you from coming!

      Hi Jenny! Correct, however I would be tempted I will figure something out. It will be a pre celebration for me. I turn 50 Mon.
