Patti:
I still have yet to put together quilts from the previous 2 exchanges.

That's another reason I am going to back out of this one.  

Maybe we should bring our prior blocks/rows to finish up at this retreat?

I think I still have 3 exchange quilts to put together.  I think I will not be doing an exchange this time.

We have lots of shrimp around here but not grits.  I'm not sure what it is, I'll try it! 


In the beautiful Pacific Northwest!

Most people that aren't from the south don't know what grits are.   Shrimp and grits are a true southern dish.

I'm game to try anything, if someone else is doing the cooking!   I love soups,  and I've eaten grits.

Actually shrimp and grits may be a little expensive to cook for that many people.  Not the grits...they are way cheap but the shrimp may be a little costly.  Don't know what the prices are like in your neck of the woods.  If you guys would really like to try it I don't mind cooking them.   But if you would just like to try grits I can cook some up for breakfast one morning.   And I can make a mean biscuits and sausage gravy....LOL>

Yum!  One of Randy and my favorite breakfasts is poached eggs over grits w/ crumbled bacon, green onions, and parmesan cheese!  As far as dinners go, I wonder if there are any grills available?  I think we may have to send the guys out to pick up some good Oregon wines.

Grits really don't have that many calories.  And if you use lowfat cheese it wouldn't be so bad.

Does that mean we are going to have carrots, celery and broccoli sitting at the tables instead of M&Ms?  I'll do fine as long as I am not sitting near the food, and the cutting tables are not by the food either.  I think the sewing room, (also called the Sandbox) has a kitchen area in it.

Maybe we could have bowls of Trail Mix, a few pine nuts and roughage mixed in with the M&Ms.  Is that better Donna?

I'm not much for breakfasts but I do a great, or so my family thinks, lasagna. Maybe we could have an Italian night to go with the red wine?

Dang I'm getting hungry.  And I have no intention of curbing my appetite or my sweet tooth.    So bring it on.  I'll even buy the shrimp. Can't wait!
