Christmas in the country

 

 If you’re too far from family to spend Christmas with them, don’t sit at home alone on Christmas day.  Come join us for a vegan dinner out in the country surrounded by friends and nature.  Spend a couple of hours or all day, a half mile back in the woods, in a rustic but warm and comfortable  lodge type house with an open floor plan good for socializing, and lots of large windows for observing the natural setting.  Be prepared for something a little unusual, my wife and I built the house with our own hands.  It’s far from being finished, but it’s a great place to hold a casual event and can easily accommodate a group of 25 or more for dinner and games.

Come as early as you like.  Dress comfortably, Jeans, sweat suit or pajamas.   Dinner will be ready to serve at 12:00, but we’ll eat whenever we feel like it.  I will prepare several simple traditional vegetables such as, Black-eyed peas or pinto beans, corn, lima beans, potato salad.  I may even try making a sweet potato or broccoli casserole.  Any dish or desserts and /or beverage you bring will be welcome additions.

I’m going to invite the Triangle Vegetarian & Vegan Meetup group, the Triangle Vegan Social Club, The Greensboro Vegan Meetup Group and the Very Vegetarian Society of Winston-Salem, to post this event, so you may get to meet some new veg friends.

    Hi Janie, so should we meet up maybe 11:45 tomorrow? Are you close to Pisgah Church and Elm? If so, I could meet you outside my apartment complex on Elm, just five or ten minutes north of downtown. Otherwise, do let me know of a more central location. I'll pay for gas.

    • Donna Janine M.

      Yes, I'd love a ride. Are you able to swing by my apartment complex just 5 or 10 minutes north of downtown Elm st? I'm a little nervous about leaving my car downtown. My number is[masked]

    Wolfgang, Donna and Janie,
    At this point it looks like 35 to 40 people are coming; most likely some will stay late. I hope so. I can’t guarantee there will be any food left, but you are welcome to come. You can call me and maybe I will have an idea of how late people will be staying. Some people will want to get on the road before dark. Dennis[masked]

    Hi again, I must have signed up after December 18th. Anybody have the directions to get to Dennis's house?

    December 24, 2012

    Also, are any vegetarians (as opposed to vegans) coming tomorrow? I may bring a vegetarian dish rather than a vegan dish.

      Janie, great! That opens up some options for me.

    Hi Dennis, I have an engagement in Greensboro at 12:00 tomorrow, but I would still love to come and spend Christmas in the country. I would plan on leaving Greensboro at 2:00 and getting to your house around 3:00. I see that someone else is hoping to come at 3;00 as well. Also, to my knowledge I did not get directions that you e-mailed on Dec. 18th. Could you send them again? thanks, Donna

    December 24, 2012

  • Dennis R.

    On December 18th I emailed directions to the Christmas In The Country event to those who RSVP’d. If you did not get the email let me know.

    December 21, 2012

  • Dennis R.

    24 RSVPs for Christmas in the country so far, 17 from the Triangle, 6 from Greensboro, 1 from Winston.
