I made did make the gluten free pierogies. I think they came out ok. I didn't make ice cream with cake because I couldn't find some of the ingredients. :(

See everyone tomorrow!!

I had so much fun at the February meetup and will be posting my own recap soon!

For now, mark your calendars for our next Potluck on Saturday, April 6th, time TBD. Mike and I are happy to host again in Oak Park unless anybody else would like to host.

The theme is Potluck Around the World and we've already signed up (actually, it was a random drawing) for the following continents/countries/regions:

Hector - Middle East
Jeni - South America
Nissa - French
Diana - Africa
Mike - Thai

For anyone else that would like to join, ideas include:
Eastern Europe / Russia
Indian
Japanese / Korean / or Chinese
Greek / Mediterreanean

So fun! I already thought of two dishes for Africa that I want to make - one new to me, and one favorite. I'm not sure yet what Mike is planning to make for Thai :-)

I know that Diana can't come, but does anybody else want to do a restaurant meet-up in March?
I just can't do the last two weekends, 23-34 & 30-31!

That sounds great! We missed you at our last potluck - hope you are feeling better.

How does 2:30 sounds? Does that work for everyone?

2:30 on April 6 works for me! Can't wait for the next potluck. I have a few ideas for French dishes, which I'll be working on over the next month!

I'm definitely up for a restaurant meetup! After my exam on Monday, I'll finally have some free time (uh, assuming I pass and don't have to start studying again!). How about next weekend (Mar 1-3) or the following one? I know we had talked about checking out the new Chicago Diner location, or trying Ground Control. I'd be up for either (or both!).

Diana--2:30 sounds great!

Nissa--First of all, good luck on your exam!!! I can do Friday March 1 or Saturday, March 2. I should be able to the following weekend as well! Either the new Diner location or Ground Control sounds great to me! :)

2:30 is perfect!
I'd be up for a March restaurant meet-up on either the 2nd, or the following weekend.
Good luck, Pepperpot!

The 2nd sounds great! Does anyone have a preference whether we go to Ground Control or the new Diner location?

Can we maybe organize something for Friday March 8th or Saturday, the 9th? I'll be going to the Chicago Zine Fest most of the day so dinner would be best. but I don't have to be there the whole time, so I can also do lunch if that's best for people

Thanks for the good luck wishes, Jeni and EmJaeDee! It's all over now, so next is two weeks of torture waiting for scores to be released!

Yeah, that sounds great! Maybe dinner at the new Chicago Diner location? I'd be fine with either Friday or Saturday, if anyone has a preference.

Hey all - Jeni and I have a fun idea for our next potluck (on April 6th):

Bring a couple of your favorite vegan cookbooks and bring your digital camera. We can pass around & browse the cookbooks and "photocopy" (with the cameras) any recipes that we want to try :-)
