Those of you coming to Not!Xmas on Saturday, we'd like to make a request. We're going shopping tomorrow to get the turkey, the vegetables, the gravy etc., but there are some things we're hoping you guys will bring.

* alcohol (we'll provide orange juice, lemonade, coke etc. for mixers, but we can't afford to buy alcohol for eleven people!)
* nibbles (crisps, pretzels, whatever you guys like)
* dip
* cranberry sauce (if anybody wants it - neither [livejournal.com profile] thudjack or I like it)
* mince pies
* any other pudding-type things you want

We'd really appreciate it if everybody could bring at least a little something. Please leave a comment here saying what you're bringing (and check the comments others have left before deciding what to bring) so we don't end up with nine jars of cranberry sauce and no dip.

Thanks, guys!

I'll bring the stuffing, wine and cranberry sauce. :)

Do you want Bread sauce as well?

Have offered to bring wine too - thinking you providing wine for 11 people could be a bit much. Halves?

(and if you take the white half that'd be great seeing as I have no clue when it comes to white wine...)

That works as I have no clue where red wine is concerned!

Deal! I'll bring a couple of reds, you do the whites, we're laughing.

And on another note, be *so* good to see you again. Been far, far too long.

There will be bread sauce, yes, but don't worry about providing it, it is sorted. Thanks, hon!

Happy to bring wine. Although I only drink red so if anyone wants white can you let me know what you like and I'll grab a couple of bottles!

Alrighty, i can bring some random alcohol (Archers, an almost-gone bottle of vodka and some apple sourz. Well, i've gotta get rid of it somehow!)

also, i'll bake some gingerbread for a part of the pudding-type things, because you can never have too much gingerbread at Christmas!!

and if you need a hand in the kitchen dept, i cooked a roast for 5 people yesterday and didn't kill one of them so i'm feeling good about my cooking skillz (if they're required o'course!!!)

*is excited*

Agreed! I had a gingerbread man with my lunch today - felt about six, but damn it was good!

YUM!

...if they're baked wearing a skirt yes. If not...then they're whatever you want them to be!

And maybe not even then - they could be Scottish...

ah, but then they'd have the tartan iced on! ...and perhaps a moustache...
