Sorry yes I know another bbq thread, but hey it's the weather for it right? hmm

I am going to take dessert but need something else as well I think.

Rice or pasta salad?

Large crate of beers? grin

I thought alcohol went without saying grin

pasta salad good plan.
Don't want to bring burgers etc, think there'll be enough of that sort of thing.

Could make that Tuna Niciose from this weeks round up maybe...

bit full on perhaps though.

Garlic bread, dips, potato salad (homemade)

Potato salad is good (I usually do it with bits of bacon, new pots and fresh chives). Homemade coleslaw also good

Tomato salad - big beef tomatoes, thinly sliced red onion and basil. Egg salad - hard boiled eggs, bit of mayo/soured cream and chopped tomatoes. Homemade coleslaw. Really quite hungry now.

I hope the weather stays good for you Slur.

Big bowl of mixed salad,
Homemade coleslaw,
Corn on the cob,
Ready cooked baked potatoes wrapped in foil to put in the coals when you get there,
Tray of carrot sticks, celery, peppers, breadsticks for dipping.

Ooh ok, where is the bbq, am coming ready or not!

potato salad we both love a lot. And tis easy.

But yes I really love tom salad too.

Its a bit confusing actually. Host has invited to bbq but then casually said to bring food. DP thinks host isn't really providing anything. I assumed host would be armed with meat and little else.

DP thinks we should take alcohol, salad/or whatever and meat for ourselves.

I'm not sure of etiquette here. I thought puidding, alcholo and food contribution like salad or whaterve. but not burgers.


What do you think?

bbq ooop north. likely to piss it down grin ah well.

I like idea of baked potatoes, bridges the gap between main and accompainment

TillyScoutsmum Fri 11-Jul-08 19:38:30

Can you give them a call and check ? Got visions of you all sitting round drinking beer and eating potato salad with a bbq with nothing on it grin

couscous with roasted veg.

And a packet of sausages in case there's no meat for you!

Could you ring them and check? Say 'I'm making my fab pasta salad and a batch of brownies, but is there anything else that I bring?'

You shoudl be able to get an idea of what they are providing then.

Calls for hiding sausages up your sleeves just in case Slur. Really hope the sun shines and it's not grim up there.

S1ur Fri 11-Jul-08 19:42:02

unfortunately can't call Tilly.

Bloke from dps work is leaving and throwing himself a leaving do bbq, has been very cagey and unhelpful casual and evasive laissez fair about whole thing.

Only mention food yesterday in a off the cuff remark when dp asked (for 3rd time)like, oh yeah bring something <vague>

okay, so will bring meat then you think? No harm I guess just feels a bit presumptious arriving with entire meal.

S1ur Fri 11-Jul-08 19:44:07

single bloke hmm does that make a difference? wonder if that would make it more or less likely to be partially catered. hmm

TillyScoutsmum Fri 11-Jul-08 19:47:30

"oh yeah, bring something" sounds like he's got the basics covered and is thinking extra stuff

I think .... hmm

Take a few sausages, just in case
