Calling all Buckeye AR peeps! 2nd annual OHIO get together is happening! Saturday June 11th, around noon. Saveur has graciously offered to host at her place in Columbus. Potluck.  Let us know if you can come and what you might plan to bring. Saveur said we could grill, but I am thinking if it’s warm, appetizers, salads, and desserts are good. Or, casseroles if someone wants to do that. I’m down with whatever, if we grill, then someone has to take time out to do that, I would rather just bring food, set up, graze, and visit. What say you? Anyone from anywhere that can attend is more than welcome; you don’t have to live in Ohio. It’s a month away from this posting, should give everyone time to make arrangements. I will send e-mails with directions if you decide you are coming. If I don’t already have your e-mail, you don’t have to post it here, e-mail me at natayo713@yahoo.com and put Buckeye/AR in the subject line. So, get busy, make those plans, and come join us!!

Hey Sassy! You know I'll be there! I've already told Saveur that I'm brining an orzo/wild rice salad - my copy cat version of J. Alexander's. We def need to recruit more people, so come on everybody, we'll have a blast!
May 16, 2011 4:00 pm
Oops, that would be *bringing*.
May 16, 2011 4:36 pm
I would love to come but wouldn't know until closer. I'm 4 hours away, anyone staying the night at a hotel?
May 16, 2011 8:21 pm
well, I was awaiting the arrival of my chickens and turkeys (twice they cancelled delivery on me) and they arrived late last week. So any chance of travelling has gone out the door for me. I was thinking, if and that was a big IF, the birds could not be delivered, I could think about a holiday-not going to happen. Anyhoo-hope you all have a great time, will be thinking of you and wishing I was there. HAGO-stands for Have a Good One:D
May 16, 2011 8:41 pm
Hahahaha, I thought maybe that was it, then I thought, nah, that's too easy! Maybe someday RG, maybe someday!
May 17, 2011 3:14 am
Dang! If this had been posted just a few days sooner.... We made plans over the weekend with friends for that weekend. If they should fall thru, though, I'll be there!
May 17, 2011 4:30 am
Would love to...but not in the cards, work is crazy and I have to make hay while the sun shines (or in this case, RAIN POURS!!! for 4th straight DAY!) grrrrr.. I am so grouchy too because of the gloomy weather... :(
May 17, 2011 4:42 am
Sounds like a lot of fun. I would love to come but have other arrangements- my son's graduation! Can't believe my oldest baby is graduating HS. (sob) I'm very happy. I know your party will be a blast!
May 17, 2011 4:57 am
I wish! Meeting other AR cooks is so much fun. Just missed meeting Saveur last year. Y'all will have such fun sorry to miss it!
May 17, 2011 9:35 am
I am so sorry to miss this. We have a wedding that weekend. Have fun!!!!!
May 17, 2011 10:42 am
I'm thinking I might come. Don't know how welcome a WOLVERINE would be- we eat a lot of BUCKEYES! Very filling :)
May 17, 2011 10:55 am
Hardy har har Mike. We'd be glad to have you! Bring the Mrs. if she's willing!
May 17, 2011 3:43 pm
I will be there! I lived in Columbus for a time, and worked there for 30 yrs., so I know it well. Just an address would be enough for me, so I will send an email for that! I would really, really like to bring a chocolate cake, but maybe that would not be welcomed? You could have teeny, weeny slices ;p!
May 17, 2011 3:47 pm
Pfft! Love chocolate cake are you kidding me! I had thought about bringing one, but I'll let you go for it LOL! Glad you can make it Marcella!
May 19, 2011 4:38 am
Hey everyone! The more the merrier! Even the Wolverines...we will make you an honorary Buckeye for the day. Can't wait to see and meet you. We will have a blast. For those of you that want to come a little early, the Clintonville Farmer's Market is a nice walk from my house, as is the Park of Roses, one of the largest public rose gardens in the country. June 11th the roses should be perfect. See you soon :0

Just checked, OSU spring graduation is June 12th, the Sunday following our gathering. The hotels near me are already booked, but ones a little farther away (like three miles) are not, and downtown hotels are still open. I'm off tomorrow so I will make some inquiries as to what's open, and give that info to Sassy Friday 5/20 to share with you.
May 19, 2011 8:50 am
Maybe next year Cat Hill and I can carpool to the Ohiogathering. I'd love to meet more of y'all. At any rate, I hope you Buckeye's have as much fun as (oh, my, I guess we Missourians would be Mules or .... let's not go there). Anyway, we'll be thinking of you at Cat's roundup later in the summer:)
May 19, 2011 10:34 am
In the mail last night was an invite to a graduation. Gotta back out. Sorry.
May 19, 2011 1:32 pm
Maybe next time guys and gals! I tend to forget about things like graduation, all the kids in the family are done with that now.
May 19, 2011 2:11 pm
I wish I lived closer!! How do I find AR groups in my area? Wonder if I should just start my own!;)
May 19, 2011 4:30 pm
Hmmm...I live close enough to make it work. That is, if anyone wants the likes of me around! But, for some reason that date is ringing a bell for me...like I am forgetting something important or something. I will have to check out my commitments before I commit...or am committed lol :) Sounds like a lot of fun though!
May 19, 2011 4:50 pm
We would LOVE to see ya Puck!
May 19, 2011 6:08 pm
Puck! What the heck could be more important than this! Get over here and join us!
May 19, 2011 8:40 pm
Oh, I feel so wanted!!! I shall do my very best to make it work- I want to get in on the fun :)
May 20, 2011 8:21 am
I'm planning to be there - and chocolate cake sounds like a dream come true! I may have to leave early, depends on a family reunion time.
May 20, 2011 7:56 pm
Sounds like fun. Too soon after Vegas, I haven't recovered yet! Plus already have plans scheduled. Rats! Maybe next year...
May 24, 2011 8:13 am
I will give it some quick thought. My husband is down in Ohio for 2 weeks of meetings and has asked if I would like to join him for that weekend. Issue is, I would hate to arrive and dump him ~ are any husbands going? Well, Gary is, obviously!
May 24, 2011 9:26 am
You are welcome to bring him Carrie. Mine is coming if he doesn't end up working. Saveurs' hubby will be there and probably SWchefs too.
May 24, 2011 10:00 am
Ok, thank you. Just spoke with him and our hotel will be in Cleveland. We will talk about some more tonight:)
May 24, 2011 11:26 am
Guess I'll bring my hubby as well. I don't think I'll have to do a lot of arm-twisting, as there is food involved!
May 25, 2011 7:30 am
I am sure that is my hubby's thinking Belle!
May 28, 2011 1:05 pm
We're down to 2 weeks? Anyone else thinking of joining us?
May 30, 2011 4:11 pm
Sassy & Saveur, my husband will be coming to the get together. I've been watching for you on the Buzz, but haven't been lucky to catch you. Hope you get this so you can estimate how many will be there.
May 31, 2011 5:45 am
I will be there!
May 31, 2011 6:33 am
I gotcha ladies! Be good to see everyone!
May 31, 2011 10:51 am
mickdee! So glad you can join us! Looking forward to it!
Jun. 1, 2011 10:14 am
Hello, everyone! Greetings from sunny Dayton, OH. Here for the next several days. My laptop is not cooperating, so checking in with you on the hotel computer. Happy to find a nice email from Mickdee! wooo! I'll be home friday, so I'll catch up with sassy and figure out the count...forbid we run out of food! :) Getting close and I'm looking so forward to it. Come on you last minute planners...there is still time & room for you too!
Jun. 2, 2011 5:09 pm
Hey Savi! Just sent out an e-mail. Still haven't heard from Skuba or anything more from swchef. If you don't get it give me a call and I'll update you!
Jun. 3, 2011 9:14 am
Sassy - I'd love to come! Would like to have a few more details though before committing. What time are people planning on getting there. And what to bring!! haha ;)
Jun. 3, 2011 3:43 pm
Crystal! Noon on Saturday the 11th. Next weekend. Send me an e-mail to the address up there ^^ and I can give you more details. It's in Columbus at Saveurs house.

About Me
I never cooked at home growing up, just seems to come naturally in our family. Good satisfying down home cooking. Love trying out new recipes, and the guys here love it too.
My favorite things to cook
Love easy fast recipes, like to bake if it doesnt involve pie crust or rolling out dough.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Southern from my family, Hungarian from my husbands side. Fried sweet potatoes,cornbread dressing,fried okra,Hungarian turkey,paliscintas,Pigs in a Blanket
My cooking triumphs
Most of what I cook,nothing special comes to mind
My cooking tragedies
Like a lot of others, that first Thanksgiving turkey. Still frozen and the paper sack of giblets still in there.
