Second NY Potluck Dinner


Recommended Posts

The Green Beans at that market looked good tonight (I walked in after going to the drugstore). I eat 'em raw--I'm assuming I'm not the only one. Someone else can schlep carrots if we are really serious about this "vege" thing.

Snap Peas looked a bit wiggy, otherwise I'd bring them. I mean, unless the bunch out tomorrow looks better.

And Steven... just because YOU could eat five or six pounds of baklava by yourself doesn't mean that an actual human being could eat more than a few pieces. Its not, unfortunately, steak. And since it could get monotonous to eat more, what I might do instead is get a few of the other Turkish desserts to flesh things out.

And some green crap. :wink:

Wait... how many people are actually coming to this thing? Aquitaine's list looks a bit light...

Belmont 3, BRING THE MORUE! I love it! I'll try to remember to get a decent baguette to go with it...

I TRIED to cull the pertinent info carefully.... :hmmm:

Re the ice: I kind of figured there was some inside stuff going on, but I was covering the bases! As for veggies, that happens to be my thing, but not necessarily anyone else's. So don't knock yourself out, jhlurie. Maybe no one else except megc cares about bunny food :raz:

Suzanne is probably the only one who knows how many are coming....

OK, I've made some tapenade, so I'm coming for sure.

I have a favor to ask: could someone please pick up a baguette? The bread out here in Stony Brook is crap. I can pay that person back tonight.

I've also got some mild goat cheese to go with the tapenade/bread.

I am looking forward to meeting everyone!

Oh no! no hummus! :shock: I used up some of the essentials (roast garlic, garlic oil) on the batch for July 4th. I made a terrine of chicken & duck livers and pork instead. And some marinated olives. So the vegs can be chomped plain, as palate cleansers. :wink:

As for the head count, there may be others not "signed up" on the thread -- I sent out a bunch of pms. My count is now about 16.

Oh hell, Suzanne. I was really looking forward to the hummus, and we need some kind of dippy thing because your Pate is very similar to the turkey/pork poached larb balls that Rachel is making right this second.

Suzanne, what's the situation with serving-platters and dishes? Should I bring my stuff in plastic wrap or should I be bringing a platter and bowls?

I've got one very big (think Thanksgiving turkey-size) platter, two rather large platters, and a lot of 14-inch platters. The giant plastic salad bowl is already spoken for, but the 2 regular size plastic salad bowls are available. I have lots and lots of cereal bowls and slightly larger, and a lot of "vegetable serving dishes." A couple of miscellaneous baking dishes that could be recruited, if I ask them nicely. And a few pieces of Lenox hostess stuff, but they're on the smallish side.

Which all comes down to: I think I've got what people will need. And if not, we'll improvise. :smile:

got out of working today. will be there with spicy tomato and lobster salad, and may be some Gougeres if I can find the pastry bag. Suzanne, are you short on any last minute things?

I don't ask for much, but whatever you do give me, make it of the highest quality.

May I suggest, as follow-up for this and other eG-related events, that each recipe be added to the RecipeGullet archive and named in honor of the precipitating event? For example, Gougeres ala July 2003 NY Pot-Luck. Maybe you can do better.

All our stuff will require is two of the 14-inch platters, a couple of cereal bowls, and a knife.

Okay, may be not gougeres, which requires the 'bake and serve immediately thing'. Totally forgot that the last time I made them for a potluck was in the middle of the winter. Will think of some cookies to bring.

Also bringing 2 Balthazar baguettes....

Good, now we won't have to stop at the Balthazar Bakery in Englewood, NJ.

May I suggest, as follow-up for this and other eG-related events, that each recipe be added to the RecipeGullet archive and named in honor of the precipitating event? For example, Gougeres ala July 2003 NY Pot-Luck. Maybe you can do better.

How about including a note saying you made it for the potluck and include a link to this thread in the notes section. That reminds me, I have to change the larb balls recipe, we added cellophane noodles to the meat mixture.

I've got one very big (think Thanksgiving turkey-size) platter, two rather large platters, and a lot of 14-inch platters. . . .

I call a "rather large platter" a dinner or soup plate for the lettuce, and several smaller bowls for garnishes.

All charged up and ready to go.

Me, too!

There will be a sign-in sheet for people to list their edible/potable contributions (even the boughten stuff), because otherwise we'll never be able to identify everything afterwards. :hmmm:

Well, some stuff came up and bonked me back an hour, so it looks like I'll probably get there about 6pm. Don't snarf up all the larb balls & such before I get there! :cool:
