Our dinner guests tonight were very appreciative, but it was labor intensive! 

 

Let's do something easy!

 

Our MENU for June 12 is:

 

Hot dogs - Exit 0 to supply

 

Baked Beans - Paul will check on his pantry

 

Macaroni & Cheese

 

Cole Slaw

 

Potato Salad

 

Dessert

 

Fruit (diced melon?)

 

Buns

 

Paul has the hot dogs and may have the beans and he needs to reduce his pantry.  

 

What is especially needed is toothpaste/toothbrushes; shaving cream/razors (male & female); soap; shampoo/conditioner.

You can pm Paul on when you want the dogs available.  I can pick them up and get them to you.  Grilled dogs are MUCH better than boiled!

 

I will provide the condiments:  Ketchup, mustard, relish, and fresh, chopped onions!

I can bring a dessert and some of the items mentioned above.  How many people do I need to plan for?

I will gather up some tooth brushes, tooth paste etc and get it to GG before the dinner. In the next couple months I will be on a new schedule where I get off work at 6 so I will have to swing by one of the dinners after work.

I will not be able to be at this dinner -- but whoever is at the snack table needs to encourage people to take only one or two snacks until after everyone is served. Also, the same for toiletries. There is one lady in particular who brings a bag with her and will scoop up everything if you don't try to limit her. I know everyone who attends is needy, but I believe that we need to be sure everyone has a chance to get some items --- then after everyone is served, they can return for more. (just a "heads up" to whoever is helping on this table on the 12th!)

So far this is what we have:

 

Hot Dogs - Exit 0

 

Buns - Masey

 

Chips - Poppie

 

Mac & Cheese - Snowman

 

Macaroni Salad - Rosie the Riveter

 

Baked Beans - Sadie 2

 

Diced Melons - Tinacious

 

Desserts - backinthegame & afterglow

 

Cole Slaw - runnergirl

 

Snacks - Integrity Matters

 

Toiletries - Bigfoot (and anyone else who can contribute!)

 

Condiments - Donna

 

 

Did I miss anyone? 

 

We could still use Potato Salad if you're wanting to contribute (or really any kind of side dish that would compliment the menu - I especially liked the macaroni salad offer!) 

 

The Dollar stores have lots of toiletries available, if you can help with that.  But, IM is correct, some folk do try to load up and these (along with snack items) should be parceled out. 

 

For those who will be there that evening, bring some plastic grocery bags.  We never think of it until it's too late!  Paul can use these on other nights as well! 

 

As Tina mentioned, we usually serve 60 + folk.  Let us know if we need to sign more people on whatever dish you were planning.  You don't have to provide for all!  We get a lot of help from our friends!  Just let us know!

We are still on for the SECOND Thursday of the month? 

 

IM has delivered the snacks to me, she's going on a cruise and won't be there. 

 

As AG1971 advised, there is a real need for toothbrushes/toothpaste; shaving cream/razors (both male & female); soap; shampoo & conditioner.  These are very affordable at the dollar stores.  Any donations would be helpful.  But, IM is correct in the "loading up" and perhaps we should limit the total number of amenities to any individual.  Surplus could be given to Paul to dole out as he sees fit, or we can keep 'til next time we serve.  Any suggestions?
