What's for dinner?

Got a text that says "April showers" but if that has to do with food, I'm having a blonde moment, lol.

How about sandwiches and pasta salads?  I can do some egg salad sandwiches and a pasta salad.

I will bring the snacks, drinks and the desserts.  Maybe someone could add some fruit.

I just saw a yummy recipe for an avacado egg salad.  I've never liked egg salad, but I would actually like to try that version!  Sounded yummy!  The good thing is, if anyone boils eggs for Easter, they'll have plenty for Thursday!

If we're going to have egg/ham salad sandwiches, I can bring buns and chips?  (to serve on the plates, not for take home bags)

that's a good idea, and we can put them together at the church.

Do we want to offer a soup to go along with those sandwiches?

 

Tina's Lucky Bean soup was a hit (I didn't get a taste - dang it!)

 

I can do a taco soup.  I can also do tuna salad or chicken salad. 

 

Whaddya think?

The only problem I have noticed when we serve soup is that it is difficult to carry --- many drip it as they move along the snack line.   Either we need sturdier bowls or perhaps we could serve it at the tables after people are seated.

Sturdier bowls then.  We are down to five providers/servers.  Can't see us being able to do table side service.  Of course, we don't have to do soup this month!

Let's just do the sandwiches, chips and potato/pasta salad  this month and skip the soup.   Along with the desserts and snacks and fruit, I think that is enough.

Donna mentioned deviled eggs in a pm to me, and Ron said he'd be glad to make them for the dinner. Kelley, do you want some help with the fruit? It sounds like everything else is covered, so I don't know what to do!

 

Something to consider for a future dinner...fruit cocktail. GFS has #10 cans. Ron and I could get it and dip up single servings in cups w/lids...all you'd have to do it hand them a cup. Think that would go over?

Fruit cocktail could be a dessert Donna.  Let me know if you want to do this and I can save the cupcakes until next time.

Fruit cocktail or applesauce are big favorites!  We can put either of them on a future menu. 

 

So far we have:

 

Runnergirl - Bologna sandwiches & Potato Salad

 

Snowman - Egg salad & (possibly ham salad)

 

Tina - Buns & chips (possible avocado-egg salad) 

 

Donna - Shell macaroni/tuna salad

 

Kelley - Fruit (do not purchase a salad!)

 

IM - Snacks

 

DonnaK - well, Ron, really - deviled eggs

 

Anything else?

 

Drinks, cupcakes, desserts will be provided by our other group of helpers.
