It's been far too long since our last potluck, Chicago PPKers!

Would anyone like to host, or have ideas for outdoor locations if the weather cooperates? What dates work for people - maybe some time in May? Should we have a theme?

Let's start planning!!

Thanks for getting it started Pepper Pot! May will be hectic for me because I will be going back to work which will be a huge adjustment with the baby!

I will try my very best to come though - the second half of may or early June would probably work better.

For a theme I have a few ideas:
- beans in everything ( maybe I'm th only one who gets excited about black bean brownies?)
- Caribbean / tropical food
- afternoon tea

May is good for me, except for Memorial Day weekend. June is sort of up in the air right now. I like the Caribbean or tea themes, especially.

I checked with my hubby and if we waited till early June (Sun June 5 maybe?) we'd be happy to host! Or if anyone wants to host sooner, I should be able to make it.

June 5 would work for me! I could also do a Sunday in May if that works for more people. Maybe May 22?

Sorry I haven't posted in a while! Ok, so does May 22 still work? Anyone other PPKers coming? I know a few folks posted in another thread. How about EmJaeDee host this one, and VeggieNextDoor do the next one in June/July? Should we do a Caribbean/Tropical theme, or Afternoon Tea? I like both ideas!

Okay, folks, shall we settle on a time? How is 1pm for people?

PM for my Edgewater address, dogs and babies welcome, let me know if anyone's bringing a child who is mobile, that I may move all of my dangerous objects out of reach.

OMG!!! I nearly missed this since I didn't get an email from the forum!

How about Emjaedee pick the theme since she's hosting?
Looking forward to seeing you all!!!

I think I will leave Mike and the Baby behind this time and have you meet Baby when I host next!

Okey-dokey, I choose afternoon tea. I may have a couple friends joining us, but Bob will probably be running out about when we start.

I was hoping you'd pick that one! I am thinking of making cucumber sandwiches and scones.

Darn, I'm really sorry guys, several things have come up and now it doesn't look like I can make it this Sunday. :(

I love the afternoon tea theme!! Hope to see lots of pics!

Bummer!

EmJaeDee - are your friends able to make it? If so I will be there, and if not, maybe we should reschedule?

That works! June is wide open for me! Then I am out of town for part of July. If you are free to host in June maybe I can host in August? I am thinking for my host a park picnic in Evanston with my place as our weather backup :-)

I can host on Saturday, June 11th, or the weekend of the 25th.
Park picnic sounds delightful!

Yay! Both of those will work for me. Maybe June 26th would be better since we decided before that Sundays give us extra time to prepare. But either would be ok with me, and I won't let anything else interfere this time!

Should we keep the Afternoon Tea theme? I'm really liking that idea.

I was going to say the same as Pepperpot for dates and theme! All those dates work for me though my cooking is better for Sunday potluck .

Sounds perfect to me! Can't wait!

Maybe we can also do a tea bag swap too if anyone is interested - bring a pack of individually wrapped bags and trade!

Ooh, I think I can come to this! I would love to bring a baby. He's not mobile yet, no need to move your machetes and needles or whatever you all keep laying around on our account.
