It's going to be a BBQ thing so the meat's all taken care of. I was thinking of bringing napkin's but that's not creative enough. I want to show off that I put a lot of effort into this and that I'm a great cook without actually having to put in the effort. Any suggessions are welcomed!
"Napkin's"? Oh, dear. Learn to use apostrophes, OP.
Well, if he was hung, Footlongs of course, Silly.
Condoms condoms condoms, Rose.
You should be bringing some suggestions for having a more appropriate event to remember your lost friend.
What the hell is R4 going on about?
Bring a favorite side dish or dessert made by a local restaurant, bakery or non-chain spot. If he was part of a local group and you had a favorite food or someplace that you ate and hung out, bring that in a container that is meaningful to the group.
Napkin's what? Is Napkin the name of a person? Napkin's casserole? Napkin's favorite dish? I'm sorry, OP, can't help you.
Ask other womyn, OP
A memorial BBQ potluck?
Was your dear friend killed in a tractor pull accident?
Bring peaches or nectarines to put on the grill. Make a quick baste of honey, cinnamon, vanilla and balsamic vinegar (1:2 vinegar to honey).
good with vanilla ice cream.
Something garnished with sparklers. They're always so festive.
Oh, excuse me, OP -- I meant sparkler's.
I think OP means that it's a potluck BBQ on Memorial Day, rather than a potluck wake.
I did once attend a memorial potluck for a lesbian friend & it was very nice, her favorite kind of party -- I took a fruit salad & everyone loved it.
Mashed potato salad.
R12, thank you for clearing that up.
But I need to know about the lesbian fruit salad. Did you decide to include or exclude cherries?
Beans & weenies.
You must make Paula Deen's Mae Dawson's Hoosier Sugar Cream Pie. So simple. They'll think it's sweet. So incredibly sweet.
OP, PLEASE do not take R10's advice to do fruits on the grill. People think it's weird, not to mention kind of slimy and gross.
Try my cornbread salad recipe instead, I've posted it on DL before. Y'all will love it!
Bobby Deen's taint
Roasted Fetuses or trannie cock.
Bring jello cube shots with a can of whipped cream on the side.
R17, many of the comments about this recipe on the Food Network site agree with you that it's pretty sweet -- this cook figured out how to tone that down:
[quote]It was still sweet but with the extra whipped cream we added to each slice, it cut the sweetness a tad.
OP, why don't you just give a lovely eulogy?
Bring some hot dogs with ketchup, some hot dogs with mustard, some hot dogs with kraut, some hot dogs with chili, some hot dogs with cheese, some hot dogs with pickle relish and then everyone will be happy!
A steaming hot careen full of delicious Sanka decaffeinated coffee!
This is why we all ADORE DataLounge!
OP, it you get invited back next Memorial Day, bring cupcakes topped with green shredded coconut. On each cupcake, place a miniature tombstone and tiny American flag. To really top it off with something they'll remember, put the name of each guest on a tombstone. It will be festive and delish!
Either warm Piss Balloons, or frozen Piss Balloons, depending on the season. And a casserole.
