Our next dinner will be November 14th at the First Presbyterian Church. We will be able to make the food at home and bring it to the church to serve. Some of you have referred to it as pot luck, and I suppose it is, however we do need to keep in mind that we need enough of each type of food to serve 75 people and I would like to know ahead of time what each of you plan to bring and how many you believe it will serve...

For example, Donna has suggested we do soup and sandwiches. She mentioned her potato soup, which does sound good right now! Let's say her soup would serve 30; we would need more soup to serve at least 45. It wouldn't have to be potato...someone else may want to bring veggie soup, chicken noodle, bean, etc., and that would be fine as long as we had enough total soup for 75. The reason for asking you to let us know in advance what/how much you will be bringing is simply so we can fill any gaps that may be left.

So, what do you all think of soup and sandwiches? If that's good with everyone, we need to discuss a few things...what kind of sandwiches? On bread or buns? Will we make the sandwiches ahead of time at home or put them together at the church? What else can we have with the soup and sandwiches? Any veggies? What dessert?

Thanks, folks!

I will bring the usual snacks -- chips, cookies, etc. I would also be glad to bring or donate some loaves of bread of rolls if you let me know, Also, I think I have enough stryrofoam trays left over from the last dinner to cover this one.

If RunnerGirl is making chili, someone could make/bring peanut butter sandwiches.

I'll make bean soup (with ham) for 35. If someone wants to bring corn bread it goes well with it (and chili). Might be easiest in muffin tins?

I can make sandwiches... I can use Overit's recipe she did with the chicken salad. If that's ok, how many should I make?

I just spoke with Masey. Her computer caught a virus so she may not be online for a while, until she can get it up and running again.

Masey did say she will bring peanut butter sandwiches and some cornbread to the dinner.

I will bring more cornbread (great idea, Tina!) and a dessert, just not sure yet what it'll be but I will post when I figure it out!

Snowman, chicken salad sandwiches sound good. The how many is up to you, as many as you are comfortable making!

I have not been able to check out First Presbyterian's facilities yet. I will try to do that this coming Thursday. I believe Paul said they do have a kitchen but I don't think we want to get into using it much due to the clean up. I am wanting to see if we can plug in crockpots, stuff like that, or if we need to get a few of the inexpensive warming thingies, frame w/aluminum pans and sterno, to keep stuff warm. If we need those, we have some of the donated cash from last month in reserve to purchase 2 or 3 of them...the frames and sterno would be reusable so might be a good investment for future dinners also.

GG, I have two frames we can use. We would need to purchase aluminum pans and sternos. For soup, though, crockpots would work best!

Cool on the frames, but I agree crock pots would be best for the soup. We'll figure it out after I check it out. Ron says we can always bring a power strip if there aren't many outlets close together.

I agree on whatever takes the least cleanup!!!

I can bring one extra power strip outlet and extra crockpots if needed.
