Hi All!

Here's the scoop for our next Chicago-Area PPK Potluck. I'll be hosting in Oak Park again, but once the weather gets consistently warmer, we're thinking of holding a potluck or two at a park in the city so that hopefully more of you can join us.

Date: Sunday, June 16th
Time: 2pm
Theme: RAW! (or mostly raw)
Location: At my place in Oak Park (within 3 blocks of the Harlem Green Line, the Oak Park Metra, and a parking garage that's free on Sundays). If you're able to join us but need my address just let me know and I will send it to you via private message.

Drop us a note here to let us know if you can join us. And once you've decided what you'll be making, post it in this string so we don't have any repeats.

I'll have a pitcher of Green-Lemonade for refreshments!

I'll be there! I have no idea what to make yet, but maybe I'll check some raw books out from the library to give me some inspiration. Looking forward to it!

I'm looking forward to the potluck in a couple of weeks! I already know that I'll bring some sort of salad, most likely Mexican inspired. I'm planning on going the simple route because raw recipes can have a lot of ingredients!

If it isn't too hot I might make ice cream, I just don't know how well that'll transport. I'll have to play it by ear!

Oh dear. I've just realized that the potluck is the same day as Father's Day. I don't know how I missed that when we were planning. I'll be spending the weekend at my parents' place, so I won't be able to make it. :(

I will not be able to attend, either. I will still be in Michigan.

SADNESS.

Oops! I'm late at checking the message board. Silly me - i need to add Father's Day to my calendar for next year so I don't make the same mistake!

How about we reschedule to June 30th? I believe it worked for most of you and since that date is Pride in Lakeview, we might want to reschedule our Food Crawl too.

Now I'm ahead of the game in planning my recipe creations for the Raw theme. I'm thinking:
-Green Lime-aid
-Sprouted Quinoa Tabbouleh
-and this Raw Red Velvet Cake (which looks risky, but intriguing!) http://www.glutenfreecat.com/2013/05/ra ... -frosting/

June 30th works for the potluck! A food crawl wouldn't be good with Pride going on!!

The Raw Velvet Cake looks so good!

June 30th would work for me, but I'd be fine with a different day too, so EmJaeDee can come.

HOORAY for B moving in!!! Hopefully that means he'll be at the next event too?

How about July 6, July 7, July 13, or July 14?

Let us know which (if any) of those dates WON'T work for you, and we can go from there :-)

If both weekends work, we could do the Food Crawl one weekend, and the Potluck the next?

Very exciting that B is moving in!! :)

I will be in Michigan for the 4th of July, and I am not sure if I will be back for the weekend. I will have to check & see with Hector.

My weeks are going to be limited now because Hector & I have some good news that I have to share! However, this leads to some bad news that Hector & I are moving out of Chicago. :(
I am going to miss everyone so much!!

Eeek! I can't wait to hear the news, Jeni. I'll be so sad to see you both go, but it sounds like you have some great adventures coming up!

I am super excited to share my news!!

Would this upcoming weekend for? I couldn't remember what everyone had said at the potluck. Hector & I will be here June 22nd & 23rd for sure.

July is going to be crazy for us. I know for sure that I won't be here the last weekend for sure. I definetly want to go to one more potluck before we move in August!!

I can't do this weekend :-( My Mom, Sister, and Niece are supposed to be visiting from Florida (although all sorts of crazy things keep trying to get in the way of their trip!)

We may have to change the theme of our next Potluck from RAW to a Going Away Party! August sounds so soon :-(

We're out of town the 13-14, but July 4th weekend works for us.

Eeks, Jeni, I can't wait to hear your news! I'm sorry you'll be moving, but hope all things are grand.

I like the idea of having a going away party instead!! Of course, there will have to be lots of delicious food! :)

Would the first weekend in August work for everyone? the 3rd or 4th?

Aww, so sad Jeni and Hector are leaving Chicago. :(

I think a going away party is a great idea! Last weekend of July works for me.

As of now it looks like the last weekend in July I am free on Sunday, but not Friday/Saturday. Fingers crossed that works for everyone!

EmJaeDee - I was in Colorado earlier this month. LOVED it! If you're in Denver, definitely go to Watercourse Foods & City, O'City!

How does Sunday, July 28 sound for Jeni & Hector's going away potluck party? Would that work for everyone?

That date works for me! I'm happy to host or to go somewhere in the city. Picnicking is an option too (either in Oak Park or in the city).

I can't July 28th. :( I have to be in Michigan for an event.
It turns out that we will be in Chicago July 13th & 14th. Would that work?

July 13th or 14th would work for me too!

Do we want to do some sort of theme? I know we had planned on a raw theme before, but now it's a going away party, so do we want to do something else?

July 13th is my Future Mother-in-Law's birthday so that would be difficult for me. Sunday the 14th is wide open though!

I believe Jeni had a summer picnic on her "Chicago Bucket List", so maybe a picnic theme? Maybe we can try to meet in a park near one of our places so we have a back-up option in case of rain?
