Let me just throw this out there ('cause that's what I do!) how about doing soup for December?  December tends to be heavy on ham dinners, January tends to be heavy on soups.  Let's invert!  I know my way around a tater, (I don't care what Tina says!) and make a pretty good potato soup.  A beef vegetable soup and Ham & Beans soup could round out the top of the menu.  Pies (pumpkin, apple . . . ) would be a nice change for desserts.

I love broccoli and cheddar soup but have never made it.  Texas Roadhouse used to have the BEST broccoli & cheddar soup but took it off the menu! :(

I know a lot of folk that love Broccoli Cheddar soup!  Hadn't thought about that one!

I think soup would be a great idea for December's dinner, and the pie idea sounds good, too.

Dec 11 is same day as my company Christmas Party which will limit what I can contribute.  Maybe some pimento cheese sandwiches that i could whip up in a hurry, I won't be able to get there til about 5 at the earliest.

Don't let sandwiches fool you into thinking they're fast and easy! I could've made a pot roast in much less hands-on time than that (not so) bright peanut butter sandwich idea I had last month.

Yeah, that many sandwiches is a lot of work, but, Kelley, they LOVED the peanut butter sandwiches!

Sandwiches in bags worked really well to go as well.

for sandwiches if its something you can do the day before and they not get soggy would be a easy one.

The cutting them in half and individually bagging each half was part of the time issue. It was at least a two hour operation not counting shopping or transport. Got faster as I went, especially once I grabbed a cardboard box and gave up trying to stack slipperyass half-sandwich filled baggies on plates. Deciding to do a mix of wheat, white, creamy, crunchy was another dumb move.

thought about this a bit...  i'll have the pimento cheese all made up ahead of time and use an ice cream scoop and use those little party breads... i figure i can slap together about 3 or 4  per minute that way.  easy.  so that's what i'm doing.

I will bring the snacks as usual!   Plus Katie and I put together six Christmas bags.  I think GG said she has done several.   Hopefully, we will have enough to pass out to each one.   I can put a few more together if need be.

I'm making potato soup & lemonade.

 

Any other takers on soup provisions?

IM, what are you putting in the Christmas bags?  Can help there, too!

We'll make some soup, probably bean and maybe something else, too. We'll also help Chris and Katie with pies, and bring fruit.

 

IM, we have 10 bags put together. Do you have any idea how many we gave away last year? I can't remember!

Donna -- we put a pair of gloves, pair of socks, a hat (they have them at Dollar Tree), ear muffs that we got at Rural King for $1 and pretty nice, some toothpaste, toothbrush, razors, deodorant  combs, Kleenex, candy, etc.   But you can just put in whatever you think someone could use.  My bags are for men; but we could use a few bags with things for women as well.

GG -- seems like we gave away about 50 or so last year.
