I am really looking forward to seeing everyone soon!

For the January potluck, what dates work best for everyone? I am thinking that the weekend of the 26th & 27th works best for me. I won't be back to Chicago until after the 18th and I am not sure exactly what date.

Are we still going with the kale theme? I really think it is a great theme, especially for January! ;)

The weekend of the 26th-27th works for me, and I think a kale themed potluck would be grand.

Yay!

If no one is up for hosting, I can host! I know my apartment is small, but I think that our small group should fit!

Jan 26 or 27 works for me! And I love the kale theme. Between birthdays and the holidays, I've subsisted mostly on sugar and chocolate for the past few months, so I think I need it!

Yay!! :)

Then how about we have it on Saturday January 26th late afternoon/early evening? We can have it at my apartment if that is ok with everyone!

I am thinking that I will make some sort of kale lasagna and a kale salad!

Sounds great, Jeni! The afternoon of the 26th works for me. I love kale, but don't cook with it often enough. I'm going to start searching for recipes!

Yay!! Can't wait! I have also invited another person, Diana. She used to be on the PPK. She is really looking forward to coming!

How about we have it at 4 PM on the 26th?

I am getting ready for Saturday! I can't wait to see everyone!
I plan on making this kale lasagna from Manifest Vegan. I have been wanting to try this for awhile now!

I also will be making some sort of dip, maybe a white bean, kale & roasted garlic dip!

I'm excited for Saturday! My plan is to make the Quinoa White Bean and Kale stew from AFR. And I might also attempt to make kale chips.

I love that stew!
I might be making a shepherds pie instead of lasagna. I am still deciding!

I can't wait to see everyone tomorrow! :)

I am making potato-kale puffs. But sadly, I mixed in gluteny breadcrumbs before I remembered Jeni's gluten-free. I'm so sorry!

It is ok! :) The past week or two I have been eating gluten. In fact yesterday I had too much and I can feel it! I have realized that I do feel much better off the gluten!!

Bring something Valentine's-ish or the color Red! :-)

Our next meetup is just 8 days away! Who else is coming? What is everyone making? I'm thinking of maybe making a batch of Vegan Eats World's Borscht.

Yay! I think that I will be making a red velvet ice cream from Chef Chole's website, as long as I can find natural red food coloring. I will also bring something savory. I just don't know what yet! There are too many things that I want to make!

Oh my, Jeni - that sounds amazing! I am trying to decide on a second recipe but I also have too many ideas :-) I'm going to have Mike help me narrow down my choices, but right now I'm thinking of making the Walnut Red Pepper Spread from Vegan Eats World. Plus I may try to make a sparkling beverage with some Tart Cherry Juice :-)

That sounds great Diana!
I think that I am going to attempt to make gluten-free pierogies filled with beets, potatoes & sauerkraut for my savory dish. I have never made them before, so it should be interesting!

Nissa--do you still want me to pick you up?

I'll be there!! Sorry for my slow responses; work's been crazy and all my spare time is used for studying.

Jeni, if you and Hector don't mind, it would be awesome if you could give me a ride. But if it's too much hassle, I'll also be fine taking the cta.

I'm so excited for Sunday!...but I still have no idea what to make!
