    food

    Posted by Dan on September 16, 2017, 5:25 pm

    Hi All,

    Has there been any decision on the Saturday meal? Are we doing it together? What will it be?

    I suggest a simple pasta dish, with veg and non-veg sauces, garlic bread on the side.

    But that is just my suggestion. Any other ideas?

    Dan

        We would like to take on deserts please. Apple crumble maybe and some fresh fruit with custard.

            Herr Rudiforth,

            die richtige Rechtschreibung des Wortes ist Gruppenführer.
            Bitte merken Sie das!

              Hello Alan P,

              I can do the other sauce, if I can go.
              Any chance of a lift from you?

                So, is pasta ok with everyone, then?

                And who can bring bread for garlic bread? Or another side dish.

                And can we all agree on the type of pasta? This makes cooking easier, as they often have different cooking times- macaroni, spaghetti, etc.

                I suggest spaghetti.

                Dan

                    I'll bring some salad and some parmesan

                      I was just going to ask-

                      Can anyone please bring salad stuff- tomatoes, cucumber, and OLIVES, please! Also olive oil and vinegar.

                      I will bring some salad onions.

                      I am bringing: garlic, butter, onions, tomato sauce (not ketchup, as British people seem to confuse these two), oregano, and grated cheese.

                      Can anyone bring some baguettes, please? If no one can, please tell me, I will get some.

                        Tut, tut Dan. You should know that just because 'British people' sometimes call 'tomato ketchup' by the more generic term 'tomato sauce' it doesn't mean that we don't know the difference between the kind of tomato sauce we put on chips and the kind we eat with pasta.
                        And we even know how to make a salad! You'll have to wait to find out whether I use the same ingredients as you. But I'll buy some baguettes.

                          I would like to come too please. If there's space then fine, otherewise I will stay at Helyg down the road using my CC membership. Theres nobody in it this weekend so if anybody else wants to come thats fine. Does anybody want me to bbring anything foodwise? Incidentally i'm with Dan on "sauce". Tomato, barbecue, chilli sauce- its stuff that brits use to make bland horrible food taste less bland. Used some on a fish and chips yesterday at Luton services. Horrible.

                            Adrian there will be room - we are all in room 2 which holds 20. Parking is the real question - are you coming down with someone else? Parking is restricted.

                              Fish and chips shouldn't be bland, but if you will eat at a service station

                                mmm, may be quieter at Helyg ;-)
                                Adrian- Dan says Brits don't know the difference between a tomato sauce for pasta and tomato ketchup, I say most of us are sophisticated enough to be able to use the same word for different things given the context, most of us, but evidently, not all of us.
                                I could give Adrian a lift if he promises to sit in the back and not offer unsolicited advice on where and how to drive. Or again, he could take Dan and Moa and I'll stay at home and wash my hair.

                                  We will be bringing a meat starter.

                                    OK, so I am bringing 100gr spaghetti, I hope that is enough. And I have some sauce, but maybe not enough for all, so I think someone is doing a meat sauce as well?

                                    I believe someone is doing baguettes/bread of any sort really,

                                    but is anyone bringing things for salad???

                                    Also, is anyone bringing olives? I really want some but don't want to go shopping yet again.

                                    Cheers,

                                    Dan

                                      Dan, I think I've already said (twice) that I'll bring a salad. You'll have to either, wait and see if that includes olives, or bring your own.

                                          You'd better buy some then!

                                            So I've got garlic bread, parmesan and stuff for salad. I've not heard from Adrian so I assume he's making his own way.

                                              Excellent. The plan is coming together.

                                              See you after 6, Andy?

                                                No, as I said, between 6:30 and 7
