What we (my parish) are doing (from the bulletin):
MEAT: There will be a lamb on the spit and a Hawaiian style pig roasted in a pit. If you prefer another meat, bring it with you and we will have the BBQ lit and ready to grill. There will be people who will do the cooking for you, or do-it-yourself if you want (but they are all very good grill masters.) We will provide condiments for hamburgers and hot dogs.
SIDE DISH, APPETIZERS: While the BBQ is warming up, we like to start the feast with drinks and appetizers. (Last year, we finally had enough deviled eggs! Way to go!) This year, I hope will have enough again. (HINT HINT) (Check with me, I may have some pre-boiled eggs to offer.)
I would like to get an idea of what people are bringing, so feel free to catch me at one of the many services or e-mail me at (removed) as to what you will be sharing. We like chips and dip, (maybe even Nacho Cheese Doritos,) cheese and crackers, finger foods, green salads, pasta salads, potato salads, warm side dishes... what ever fits the feast!
DRINKS: I will make strawberry lemonade, but we need beer, sodas, beer, wine, more beer, and more wine. Did I mention beer? (We need to keep those grillers happy!) Do you want me to make Sangria again? I will if people request it.
DESSERT: There will be Pascha Cheese, ice cream, and candy, but feel free to bring more sweet stuff! (Pie goes nicely with ice cream...)
ACTIVITIES: Be apart of all of them or none of them. The kids will hunt for Pascha eggs, and we may have a few relay-type races involving eggs, and potato sacks. Perhaps a tug-o-war may happen or an Ultimate Frisbee game. If there is interest, we can set up the Volleyball net. There is a cleaned up horseshoe pit, too. We can also just sit around (because we are too stuffed to move) and hang out with each other. (You may want to bring a comfortable camp or beach chair that has a back on it. )
Who knows what more activities there will be!
