Schedules for the Family Reunion

Mom has been stressed out so I offered to make a food list for the family reunion next weekend. I tried to make it as easy as possible for everyone.

Friday Night--Hot Dogs and Frito Chili Pie

Every family brings their own dogs, buns, and drinks.
Amy--chili
Mom--shredded cheese
Jessica--diced onions
Jenny--two bags of Fritos

Saturday Morning--BREAKFAST!

Mom--biscuits
Jessica--two dozen eggs
Amy--gravy and 2 lbs of sausage
Jenny--2 lbs of baccon

Saturday Night--Hamburgers

Every family brings there own patties, buns, and drinks.
Amy-baked beans
Jessica--potato salad
Jenny--three bags of chips
Mom--sliced tomatoes, onions, and dip

Friday and Saturday Night--DESSERT! SMORES!

Jessica--marshmellows
Jenny--chocolate
Amy--graham crackers

If you can think of anything I have forgotten, something you would like to add, or anything else, just let me know. Also, I didn't know if we all wanted to bring our own paper plates and untensils, or if we wanted to all pitch in and share. Keep in mind when purchasing food it will be for 8 adults and 5 kids. I thought it would be easiest if every family did there own lunches since our breakfast it so late. Let me know if you think the quanities are big enough. And, mom will have condiments.

I know Mom gets stressed out when it comes to cleaning up after each meal. She frightens me when she turns into Sybil, so I took the liberty of making a cleaning schedule as well.

Friday Night

Jenny--clean dishes
Brian--dry dishes
Kids--pick up trash with Papa Joe's help
Amy/John--gather dishes
Mom--put dishes/food up

Saturday Morning

Jessica--clean dishes
Jonathan--dry dishes
Kids--pick up trash with Papa Joe's help
Jenny/Brain--gather dishes
Mom--put dishes/food up

Saturday Night

Amy--clean dishes
John--dry dishes
Kids--pick up trash with Papa Joe's help
Jonathan/Jessica--gather all dishes
Mom--put food dishes up

I hope this helps everyone and isn't annoying. Let me know if I have forgotten anything!

You are a freak of nature . . . I LOVE IT! Thanks for scheduling me for buying at least 5 bags of chips;) You know I LOVE cooking, eh? I have a problem with the cleaning list. I so much don't mind turning into Sybil, in fact I look forward to it. Sooo. . .I will not be cleaning (1)I am pregnant (2)well #1 trumps the rest so there you have it! JUST KIDDING!

Good organization skills Amy, I am oh so proud!

Thanks for the food schedule - now we know what we'll be eating! Papa and I will bring some of everything; plus Papa made a big pot of stew for anyone who wants to try it. It'll be especially good if it turns as cold as it did last year! I'm bringing a birthday cake to surprise Norma, so if you want please bring a birthday card for her.
Love you,
Grandma

Aren't you sweet. I was wondering when I would get the grocery list. I wanted to ask Janet today when she dropped off Jacksen, but she looked so worn out I thought I should wait until later. Everything sounds great! Let me know if I need to bring anything else.

This was great! We need to do this every year. I feel pretty good today. Normally I am exhausted.
