Guests should bring a side dish and/or beverages to share. Dinner will be served at about 5pm but you are encouraged to arrive earlier.

    Hi there Carol--- I trust that you received my pre-registration notes,
    that I would be bringing veggies, i.e., brussel sprouts? Would you still... like me to bring this offered dish, or might you now prefer that I bring a yummy dessert? (I could bring a rich... dark chocolate cake, or another Thanksgiving pie?) Will stand by, for any further input from you, and am looking forward to meeting you soon, and Celebrating together....

    November 21, 2012

    • Carol

      Brussel sprouts sound great. I'll have a microwave and stovetop if you need to finish them up/warm them up

    I was thinking (I know, bad habit) that fresh fruit salad might not work with this meal so I could bring my killer guacomole and chips or I have a fresh pumpkin pie (I believe someone else is bringing one) or stick with the fruit salad. Please let me know. I will also bring a nice old Bordeaux.

    Carol,

    I am bringing champagne and snacks. Was supposed to pay Edwin, as Paypal never works for me. I moved yesterday and have been super, super occupied, but I'll bring my $5 when I come.

    I presume a large fresh fruit salad and an old Bordeaux will work. If you would like me to bring something else let me know.

    Instead of the morel/porcini dish, how about if I bring some champagne and wine, instead? I imagine there will be lots of food.
