    DESSERT EXCHANGE, sunday, 4pm, november 11. here are the simple rules:

    bring a dessert to share, and containers to take home other desserts. i'll make a vegetarian dinner. i have 2 cats who can stay in my bedroom for the duration, just fyi. i live in logan square and parking is pretty easy. i'm 2 blocks from both the fullerton and armitage buses, and a 12 minute walk from the blue line at california. i can host 10 people. all are welcome, and newcomers are encouraged to join. we get together to share food and good company, not to impress, so bring something simple, bring something fancy- nobody's a critic at a dessert exchange....

    i'm bumping this thread, as there's still room for a few people to join us for a dinner of mushroom lasagna, salad and some tasty desserts. i'm PM'ing my address to those who've signed up.

    I don't know what I'm making yet, but my parents are having Spencer sleep over on Saturday, so I'm hoping to make something more complicated just for fun since I'll have the time.

    I have an overly-ambitious cooking/baking weekend planned. I have no idea what I will make. I am guessing it will be something less complex.

    Hi Joan,

    I just realized small household exchange and dessert are the same time effectively at the same time.

    I cannot attend dessert exchange this time around.

    I'm so sorry for not noticing this earlier. I was looking forward to your mushroom lasagna, too.

    Regards,

    Hi,

    Trying to avoid conflicts in advance, Small Household Exchange is planning on Sunday, January 13th.

    If you need to do it on this date, so be it.

    Thanks!
