I am going to use the green chilies as you suggest - I am sending you the hot peppers out tomorrow and look forward to the BBQ sauce - will pm my addy to you!! Can not wait to try this meal on Saturday!!

It's a lot like we make our cornbread. I bet the creamed corn makes it very tasty! dh is kind of a cornbread snob, so I wonder what he'll think.

I would love to participate this weekend. I remember doing this several months ago on this forum & it was fun - helped me to decide what to make. BUT - I will be doing a meal for the homeless shelter on Sat. & a church meal on Sunday. I'll tell you what I'm planning, maybe that will give you some ideas.

Shelter Meal
Baked Ham
Cheesy Potato Casserole
Green Bean Casserole
Scalloped Corn
Buttermilk Dinner Rolls

Sunday Church Meal - the theme this month is Comfort Food
Homemade Tomato Soup
Grilled Cheese Sammiches (Not sure how I'm going to handle doing a large quantity of them yet. Any ideas?)

Something green and healthy needs to be there, I think. Mustard greens w/ 50 tons of garlic?

Do we get dessert?
I'm wanting to see the Chicken and dumplin's, though I have to say winter reminds me of Granpappy King (RIP) he made the best turtle dumplin!

wow...awesome thread!!

I'm not a Bobby Flay fan, but my wife and I aren't happy unless there's some kind of chili in it

that being said, I don't know of any of forumites live near New Mexico/Colorado......but Hatch green chilies have the best lowheat-high flavor of any green chilies I've had. I usually throw some into the cornbread, next time I do chicken and dumplings I'm putting some in the dumpling dough

A 2 year old thread renewed. But I don't see a final decision, Alex. Or is that in another post?

Oh no, they way this worked is that everyone was supposed to make a "comfort food" meal on the weekend in question and we'd all toast our friends at DC as we ate it.

We used to try to put together a menu that we would all cook on the same day and we would all raise a glass to toast absent friends and know that we are all eating "together" even though we are apart.

I'd happily start a new thread for us to try it this coming weekend if there are folks who are game. Post here if you want to give it a go.

This made me think you were going to pick.

Anyway, I'm in. We're getting a different weather front in the next 2 days. Back to humidity and Sept. weather.
I'll just turn the A/C way down!
