Boy oh boy I am having a time setting a date for the round up. The 24th is for sure not going to work, it is a weekend to stay a way from the shore if you don't like high prices, heavy traffic, and over crowded attractions.
  So I changed the date in my original blog post to the 17,18,19 of May only to find out that date may not work as well.
  So please stay tuned this round up will get off the ground and once we iron out the kinks and get it together you can rest assured we are going to lay a party down like you have never seen before.
   I went and looked at hotels yesterday and found 2 very good prospects that  have indoor pools and an area we can gather together  on Saturday night. One hotel has a full breakfast and the other has a cold breakfast with waffles. Both hotels are clean and appear to be safe, one has rooms and the other is suites. The pricing is similar between the 2 hotels and will be approx. 200.00 for the 2 nights.

Let us know what you decide! Which shore are you considering? You and I switched places! Ha! My home town is 45 minutes from where you live now and I am currently living 45 minutes from your home town! Need to visit NJ relatives so maybe the date you pick could be considered!!

So close to home, but, I work in the nursery business and nothing in May would work for me. I will be jealously watching for updates on this round up. Great price on the rooms!

Mickdee, Atlantic City NJ for the round up. The hotels are 10 minutes outside of the actual city but that saves about 200 a night per room. If you can make it that would be so cool. There are 2 others from MI that are thinking about coming as well.What was your home town? Baking Nana I was secretly hoping you would be able to make it. Tasha if it turns out to be the weekend of the 31st maybe then you can make it. A day trip or night trip so you can meet up and enjoy some of the fun would that work?

I love making fried foods,it is not so healthy for you but the flavor and juciness of fried food can't be beat.
My favorite family cooking traditions

My cooking triumphs
Gravy! I am now the Queen of gravy but that wasn't always so.Lumpy was the least of my problems.For years I would buy the gravy in a jar,not any more I got determined and I mastered the art of gravy.
My cooking tragedies
Well I had many many gravy tragedies but I have had more baking bloopers then gravy.I can't seem to manage a cake from scratch,you can either use it as a clay brick or as saw dust on the floor,so I leave cake baking to others.
