Potluck Happenings

Following the small wedding ceremony we will be getting everyone together to have some grub and some fun. Here are some ideas of what folks can bring and have different people sign up for the dish of their choice. That way we won’t end up with 500 hot dogs and 20 lbs of ice!

So, the idea behind having a potluck for a post-wedding celebration is so everyone can be involved in the fun. Below is a list of things that I thought we could use for food (and things that go with the food). Please, leave comments about what you’d be able to bring so that I can check them off my list and update the blog. You’re welcome to bring more than one item if you’d like… (PS  If you can only do a grocery store run we will still love you!!)

Potluck status as of 7/24/09 (aka spoken for dishes):

  • fried chicken
  • corn casserole
  • zucchini
  • 24 beef burgers
  • 17 veggie burgers

  1. Hiya Mimi,

    What a great way to stay organized. It already sounds delicious.


  2. Hey Meems, Since we’ll be coming into town that day I won’t be making anything… We’ll bring something store bought. How about some hot dogs! I’ll plan on getting a few packages, but as it gets closer and you have an idea of how many people are coming, you can let me know and I’ll get more/less.

  4. Yeah, how ’bout dawgs/buns and a side thing? 🙂
