Excellent! I didn't know he switched names (I think I'll change my name to foreverlurking).

I found my Christopher Kimball recipe last night. I'm ready to roll Lauren.

I'm new to Mouthfuls but used to be on e-gullet a year or so ago (and I'm still grateful to you guys for my introduction to bahn mi!) :rolleyes: I was excited to find all of you over here!

I've never been to one of the gatherings, but if a newbie is welcome, mac and cheese certainly sounds like a perfect place to start.

Let me know if I have to prick a finger or take a blood oath.

Welcome MySiuMai! All of us were newbies once. The mac & cheese event is an excellent venue for your debut. No poking body parts, body fluids or other forms of hazing that I know of. Come on over and be apart of the fun. We look forward to meeting you. BYW I am so excited about this event. Thanks again Lauren for hosting. :blush: wl

Is it February 11th, yet?? Mmmm...this event will be carbo-liscious. I think I will deviate a bit (being a deviant and all) :rolleyes: and bring a dessert. I was thinking poached pears, perhaps....something "light" to bring us out of the starch-induced coma. See you all then! Nanc

Akemashite Omedito..., Gung Hay Fat Choy, Happy New Years. I think that it is time to start consolidating who is bringing what, who might be really attending, etc. There seems to be great momentum for this event. I am really excited that we are going to do this. The following list is not written in stone as I know that people may possibly change their minds.

Folks bringing "Mac & Cheese":
Lauren - Green Chili, providing venue & recipes for those who may need them
Rocky - Chili Mac
MG Apicus - his own wonderful version
Gourmet Lights - Scott's (of Blue Onion & Fork) recipe
Little Miss Foodie - Martha Stewart's
Girl Chow - Christopher Kimball (Cook's Illustrated)

Those bringing "Something other than Mac & Cheese":
white lotus, plus friend - Pelegrino and other non-alcoholic beverages, big green salad, 8 folding chairs, may also bring veg. crudites/relish plate
Artzygirl - poached pears or possible other dessert
Fwed - something yummy, possibly sweet
Della - To be decided
MySiuMai

Undecided as to attending:
Schielke & Mrs (?)
Srhch (?)

It would be nice to hear confirmation of attendence numbers as dining space
at Lauren's is limited. We may have to take a wait list once critical mass is reached.
Looking forward to hearing from you.

I would like to come, too. What time is this party? Depending on the time, hubby might come too.

I'll bring some Collard Greens w/smoked ham hocks to help round out the meal. Also some sparkling water/non alcoholic diet beverages.

Somebody should do deconstructed mac n' cheese....oh, wait...wrong get-together...
It may have been Camelot for Jack and Jacqueline
But on the Che Guevara highway filling up with gasoline
Fidel Castro's brother spies a rich lady who's crying
Over luxury's dissapointment
So he walks over and he's trying
To sympathize with her, but thinks that he should warn her
That the Thirld World is just around the corner

I guess thinking about attending is not the same as posting re: same. The date is on my calendar and we plan to be there with Guy Savoy's Overnight Mac and Cheese. Will follow this thread to see if anything else is needed.
