    Now that some are vaccinated, and the weather is nicer, I wondered if anyone would be up for a Dessert Exchange/gathering?
    I was thinking of my big backyard,
    Let's do June 13, and a bit earlier than usual so we can avoid any evening showers.
    The backyard has lots of nice trees, but can get some dappled sunlight as well.
    Obbviously, the sun moves around, but if needed I do have a pop-up canopy...
    If it's too hot or rainy we could move indoors.

    LMK what folks think - if there's demand, I'm happy to host.

    Hi,

    I could be available either date.

    I bet LauraS will be happy to learn this development.

    I may be able to attend. Trying to figure out if I'm going to make a trip up to the lake. I may leave on the 15th. My allergies have lessened a bit, but my cow's milk allergy is still going strong, so I probably won't be able to eat any of the desserts other than mine.

    Hi,

    I am planning to bring a dessert from Farm to Table Desserts. It is available via Hoopla and is a Highland Park Library's Cookin' with the Books selection.

    If you want to make a recipe and perhaps join the cookbook club discussion, it is June 15th at 7:30 pm.

    No idea what I will make though!

    elaine: the 'upcoming LTH events' posted to the right of the chat has us meeting at 4pm. i'm pretty sure you want us as 3....
    i'm planning to make a passionfruit curd swirled NY cheesecake; i might throw in some blueberries if i don't eat them all. they seem to be at their peak of sweetness right now.

    and you might want to PM us your address. i have it, but in case others dont.... thanks

    Hi all,

    yes I was thinking 3 PM
    sounds delish Joan
    I tucked some Lime-coconut bars in the freezer last week,
    but may get ambitious and add something else.
    Likely a salad and quiche for a light meal
    There will be at least 1 vegetarian version.
    Diane said she's going to bring her famous chicken salad... :P

    It's been so fun to get to look through cookbooks again and ponder what to make. I'm thinking about mini strawberry shortcakes with buttermilk biscuits. I can keep the components separate so that people can take home strawberries and biscuits, but the whipped cream would obviously not hold up super well. I will keep pondering though.

    i'm so sorry to have to say this: but i woke up with a stomach bug this morning and will not be able to attend this momentous, first dessert exchange in over a year.... my apologies to our host, irisarbor, and to my fellow LTHers. the weather's perfect, and i look forward to some pictures later this week.

    Realized I never confirmed whether I could attend. Wasn't getting notifications of posts, so slipped my mind. Sorry, but I'm going to have to pass today. A bit too much on my plate this weekend. Enjoy the beautiful day.
