  1. Wonderful, thanks!!!

  2. I would like to come to the party on December 10. I will be out of town for the next week so I will be unable to attend the movie night. Do I need to renew my membership, it may have been a year since I paid dues? I have missed the last few months due to a hectic schedule but will have more time to come to events at the present. Can you let me know if I need to update my membership and what you would like me to bring. Does it need to be off the menu posted? I don’t have the recipes for many of those items. You can contact me at Thank you, Kathleen Martin from Rhode Island

  3. Hi Kathleen,

    No dues are required, so just bring yourself! We haven’t collected any dues since we left Meetup.

    Rebecca, can you e-mail your address to Kathleen? Send it to me too, for that matter — I don’t have it anymore.

    The menu I posted is just what we’re bringing so far, and Rebecca has declared a Southern theme for the food. So just leave a comment on the blog or Facebook telling us what you’re bringing (anything Southern) and if you’ll be bringing a guest.

    See you at the party!

  4. “I am all a flutter at the joyous prospect of attending the gala event to be held at the gracious appointments of Lady Rebecca de Champagne on the evening of the10th of December!” That there was Regency speak for, “Can’t wait to party with you all!” I am sorry to have been out of touch and am looking forward to seeing everyone.

  5. I’m delighted to read that Kathleen and Ann are coming to the party! Yea!!

  6. I’m very happy to read this Ann and Kathleen!!!! Wine is needed or additional dishes…

  7. Been contemplating my victual contribution to this epicurean repast……. Shall I bring Baked Brie with apricot, walnuts & pecans to spread on French bread & crackers? I’ll gladly contribute wine also.
    Regards, Ann

    • Sounds wonderful to me! Thanks so much!

    • Ditto!

  8. LOVE IT!

  9. Kathleen I sent you an email. I sent through facebook everyone else who RSVP’D yes, a link to my page with directions and instructions.


    Could you bring some white paper plates instead of food (if you haven’t already chosen something)? Small or large. Chinette style. (because they are thicker than flimsy ones)


    I will have some too but I realized its crazy / messy to use all real china / plates in a house my size 😉 no where to hide em all in between dish washing cycles!! – THANKS Rebecca
