Calling all peeps to attend our 3rd annual OHIO BUCKEYE BASH!!  Saturday June 2nd, around noon. Bellepepper has graciously offered to host this year at her place outside Columbus. Potluck, with her and Mr. Belle providing meat and drinks.  Let us know if you can come and what you might plan to bring. Appetizers, salads, and desserts are welcome or just bring you. We will have plenty of delicious food, I can guarantee it!  What say you? Anyone from anywhere that can attend is more than welcome; you don’t have to live in Ohio. It’s 2months 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. Guys and gals are welcome to bring their significant others. Bellepepper says the guys(or ladies if they are so inclined)can fish in the lake at their house and that Mr. Pepper has plenty of equipment! On a personal note from me, gifting(which has been done in the past)is not necessary. If you want to fine, if not..that’s fine too. I am abstaining this year, it makes me crazy trying to find something for the girls and guys. :)  So, get busy, make those plans, and come join us!!

Wow, sassy! You're on top of it, like I knew you would be! Come on peeps! We'll have a blast! There are plenty of you who are in Indiana, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Kentucky that aren't that far away, so come and join us.
Mar. 26, 2012 9:34 am
Hmmmmmm. I just might.
Mar. 26, 2012 10:11 am
Oh lisa!! That would be awesome! Park the kids with your mom and bring hubby. Maybe spend the night. I've just checked out some hotels and am forwarding the info to sassy. It could be a romantic little get-away!!
Mar. 26, 2012 11:27 am
Sassy, you can count on me and my hubby to be there! I will let you know later what I will be bringing, unless something is needed to balance the menu, then just let me know and I'll make that! I'll keep an eye on this blog to keep up. Thanks to you and bellepepper!
Mar. 26, 2012 1:23 pm
Lisa! Come meet all of us. If you can't maybe try for a MiniMi again this fall. That was a blast too!
Mar. 26, 2012 1:24 pm
Marcella, bring whatever you want to make, it is still a ways off. I usually try to fill in if I think it's needed. Usually not, everyone brings an extra or changes at the last minute. It's all good food!
Mar. 26, 2012 2:36 pm
Ok so my memory is dim but aren't you all the first to start the roundups? And what a wonderful thing they are! I can't come this year but I sure hope Mother Ann makes your roundup. As always, safe travels to everyone going to this roundup cause I know you will have an BLAST!
Mar. 26, 2012 3:17 pm
Aww man, I'll be in North Carolina that day on vacation! :(
Mar. 26, 2012 3:25 pm
Oh how I wish I could come...I'd love to meet Mr. and Mrs. Belle. You know...June 5th is our 30th wedding anniversary....hmmmmmmmmm. Did you say Romantic getaway?
Mar. 26, 2012 3:45 pm
I may actually be able to make this one...only hitch in my giddy up really is that my dad's birthday is the next day, and I am not sure what the plans are as of yet...I will figure that out and let you know!
Mar. 26, 2012 4:25 pm
Myself & Mr. Mickdee will be there will there with "bells" on! Ha-ha! You won't want to miss this one, everyone. It will be lots of fun! Sassy, will let you know a bit later what we will bring or tell me what you need. Look forward to seeing you, BP and Mr. BP, AKA "Bob"!
Mar. 26, 2012 5:15 pm
Cat Hill, I did start the ball rolling. It all started with crashing IrishGina's wedding and morphed into a lunch with SWchef that got opened into a free for all! The best kind!
Mar. 26, 2012 5:15 pm
Crystal!! We just can't seem to get you there, but have a fun time down south.
Mar. 26, 2012 5:17 pm
Sherri and Puck, you are more than welcome to come! We'd love to meet you.
Mar. 26, 2012 5:38 pm
mickdee, I knew you're be here with that handsome husband of yours! Can't wait!!!! "Bob" is a willing participant but don't get him started! LOL!
Mar. 26, 2012 5:44 pm
Sherri! Yes, def a romantic weekend! It would be so neat to meet you, please come. Just hop on a little jet and be here. Don't even worry about food, you'd be coming from too far, so you get a pass. We'll cover for ya!
Mar. 26, 2012 5:46 pm
Puck, Dad won't care if you celebrate a day or two early or late. Try to make it this year, we'd love to meet you!
Mar. 26, 2012 5:48 pm
You are sweet! Look forward to seeing you & "Bob"! We will all have fun and look forward to seeing everyone!
lisa j 
Mar. 26, 2012 6:14 pm
Haha! If Puck is in, well, so am I. We can discuss Tim Tebow. HAHAHA. And it would be great fun to meet Rachael. I will be the one wearing the number ten jersey. :) Can you pick me out of the crowd?
Mar. 26, 2012 6:40 pm
Lisa, that is so funny! I was scrolling down and saw your name and thought "Heck, if Lisa is in, I am definitely going to make it work somehow" before I even read your comment! I would love nothing more than to discuss Tim Tebow...Peyton Manning...Bounty Gate...etc. And, and- I hear there is going to be food and drinks at this shindig...
Mar. 26, 2012 6:58 pm
You betcha baby, I bet someone will be making sangria again!
lisa j 
Mar. 26, 2012 7:07 pm
Oh my goodness, Puck. Now I will have to check my calendar. How fun would it be to meet in person? Should I bear the trophy? jk. NOT. Eli pulled through. YES!!!
lisa j 
Mar. 26, 2012 7:08 pm
Not that there's anything wrong with Big Ben.
Mar. 26, 2012 7:13 pm
Somebody best watch out for us Lisa. It may start off as a great time, and then a couple of drinks later, and some football talk...we may be battling it out, pulling each others hair and you may end up getting really hurt! Hahaha!!!!
Mar. 26, 2012 7:13 pm
OTG, my memory does still work! LOL, I kept thinking it was you that had the first blog about meeting other AR's. I guess the rest of us roundup gathers should have a toast in your honor for getting that ball going cause I can't think of a better group of people to spend an afternoon with :)
lisa j 
Mar. 26, 2012 7:29 pm
Game on Puck. May the best Fan win. Um. Ben vs. Eli? Bring your hairdresser. You're going to need her. :)
Mar. 27, 2012 4:39 am
Woo, Hoo! Sound like a blast, can't wait to see everyone. The Saveurs will be there, for sure. Hope everyone can make it. Can't wait to pull up a lawnchair and an icy cold beverage and watch all of the "action" at this year's fishing tournament!
Mar. 27, 2012 5:09 am
I am very seriously going to make it! I can't think of a single excuse not to be there! LOL Hubby will have to come, too. :) If I can get ahold of the yummy chocolate wine I'll bring a bottle or two of that, plus a chocolatey dessert. Can't wait!!
Mar. 27, 2012 5:20 am
Yay, Mother Ann! Finally! So looking forward to meeting you. Yes, bring your hubby. The guys, mine for sure, had a great time last year!
Mar. 27, 2012 6:11 am
Travel time has run out for me. However, our son and family live in Westerville so, maybe, we can visit them that same weekend and have a dual purpose weekend. (The next weekend we are going to Cat's Midwest Roundup in Missouri.) Gonna try! I'll email if I can make a firm commitment.
Mar. 27, 2012 6:12 am
I'm in for sure! Hubby just texted me back - he put it in his calendar. That means it's a GO!! I'm so excited to finally be able to meet some of my friends from this site.
Mar. 27, 2012 7:07 am
Mother Ann, glad you're going to finally make it! Mike, hope you can finagle your way down here too!
Mar. 27, 2012 7:27 am
Oh dear, oh dear! I soooo want to be there. It depends on how the sale of NM house progresses and the purchase of an OH home is going. Maybe if we can't make the OH AR Reunion, we'll get the the MiniMI in the fall???
Mar. 27, 2012 8:17 am
Aww, we would love for you to make it in time, maybe if we all cross our fingers the house sells fast?! If not, the MiniMi(that is actually bigger than mini)would be great! Mickdee, any thoughts on whether we are going to do another? Maybe take the waitress up on her recommendation to come see her at her other place of employment LOL!
Mar. 27, 2012 8:26 am
Mike, we would love to meet the Mrs. Mike Harvey and see you again as well! Yippie, Mother Ann, third time's a charm! And our dear swchef, I've got fingers and toes crossed already!
Mar. 28, 2012 5:46 am
We have plans that weekend, although I may cancel them if Lady Sparkle does not do a round up in Lafayette Indiana, only an hour away. I'll check my yahoo email to see if I've heard anything from her and go from there. I would really love to meet you all! And I would bring something good to eat!
Mar. 28, 2012 6:13 am
Sure, Sassy! We can do another Mimi MI! Will work on it over the summer for October- early November!
Mar. 28, 2012 7:56 am
That's sounds like a plan, mickdee! We'll surely be moved by then??
Mar. 28, 2012 10:29 am
Great, swchef! Glad we have a backup plan to see you! :D
Mar. 28, 2012 11:56 am
I love forward to reading the "after" blog! Have fun everyone!
Mar. 28, 2012 12:50 pm
I'm in! And I'm sure Maggi will come, too. YAY! Hopefully, we'll have some new friends who haven't gotten to visit yet and maybe everyone from previous Buckeye Gatherings! That would be so cool!
Mar. 28, 2012 1:23 pm
Great Cindy! Hubby asked me if 'his girlfriend' was going to be there! Am I going to have to separate you two?
Mar. 28, 2012 2:27 pm
Yahooooo Cindy! So glad you and Maggi are coming! And sassy, you be nice now and share, LOL!
Mar. 29, 2012 10:27 am
Sassy - I would so cancel if we didn't already have a beach house booked and everything. Going to Outer Banks that day and staying the whole next week. Should be fun!!
Mar. 30, 2012 8:49 am
You Girls crack me up! Can't wait to see you!XOXOXO
Mar. 31, 2012 6:45 am
Cindy! So glad you will be there! Sure hope Maggi makes it, too! :)
Mar. 31, 2012 5:09 pm
**creeping in verrrry sheepishly*** since my new job duties I have woefully neglected my AR friends and sadly my cooking duties! I may just be able to attend this get together if out of town family doesn't throw a monkey wrench in the plan! Is there room for a wayward occasionally off color Buckeye girl in the mix?
Mar. 31, 2012 5:38 pm
Methinks I'm the other half of that offcolor LOL. Sure, Connorsmom, invite is open! Come on down!
Mar. 31, 2012 6:23 pm
You complete me!!!! %;*&@#%
Apr. 1, 2012 6:39 am
connorsmom! Wow, we've missed you! We'd love to have you come!
Apr. 3, 2012 6:22 am
This looks like fun! I hope I can make it!
Apr. 3, 2012 7:58 am
You are more than welcome to come Carrie! Marcella,Carrie(from Canada), and Mickdee were new to the group last year and I'm assuming they enjoyed theirselves! Shoot me an e-mail if you think you might come and I can give you directions, etc....
Apr. 6, 2012 1:27 pm
OHMYGOSH! Connorsmom! We missed you, Girl! I will be so glad to see you and catch up with you! Where's our Skuba? Reservations are made and confirmed for Maggi and Me. If anyone plans on staying the night, GET YOUR RESERVATIONS NOW....there a big PGA Tournament that weekend plus lo cal graduations.
Apr. 6, 2012 1:49 pm
I e-mailed Skuba, haven't heard back.
Apr. 18, 2012 11:43 am
OK, folks. If you need a hotel, I gave sassy 4 hotels that are very close by. I just checked each this afternoon and all still have rooms available for June 1st and/or 2nd. One, however, requires a 3-nite stay, due, I'm sure, to the Jack Nicklaus Memorial Golf Tournament that is the same weekend. Come and join us!!!!!
Apr. 21, 2012 8:44 am
It's gonna be a lot of fun!!
Apr. 21, 2012 8:56 am
Absolutely, mickdee! Come on peeps, we still have plenty of room and would love to "see" you!!!
May 2, 2012 12:02 pm
Aw shucks.....I would love to come. Can I have a raincheck for next year? This year has quickly spun out of control :(
May 2, 2012 1:07 pm
Of course you can Mauigirl! Drop in anytime!
May 2, 2012 2:32 pm
My reservations have been made at Alum Creek campground and I have 3 bottles of coco-vino wine! I'll make a dessert as well. I can't wait to meet everyone!
May 2, 2012 3:24 pm
I'm counting on you for my chocolate fix!!
May 15, 2012 6:35 am
I guess I should mention that we'll be grilling pork tenderloins that day. And I'll be serving them with two sauces, one sweet and one savory. And I heard from Saveur and she's bringing a lemon/raspberry sangria (lol, we knew someone would) and a salad. Still plenty of room for more of you to join us!!!!!
May 15, 2012 7:45 am
I still haven't decided what to bring this time. I'm on recipe overload trying to go through my moms packrat everywhere recipes LOL!
May 15, 2012 2:04 pm
Yippee! The countdown begins!!

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.
