Planning a Bloggers party

I’ve decided to throw a Bloggers party at my home on October 18.  There will be eleven of us.  The criterion for being invited is that you have to own a local blog site that I visit daily, or be married to someone who owns a local blog site that I visit daily.  Besides me and David (who does not blog), the following guests will be coming:

IAN and Meda:  http://ilind.net/
CLOUDIA:  http://comfortspiral.blogspot.com/
BURL and Mary:  http://www.honoluluagonizer.com/
KAY:  http://travelerswife.blogspot.com/
ART:  http://artthemarathonmaniac.blogspot.com/
CHARLENE:  http://quilldancer.com/
CHARLEY:  http://ocquill.wordpress.com/
 
Do check out these sites.  You will then know why I visit them daily.  Isn’t it wonderful how we make new friends just by writing a blog?  Innocent pleasures!

Since it won’t be potluck, I have been wondering what to cook for eleven people.  Here’s the tentative menu:   Tossed salad, chow mein, baked salmon, chilled shrimp cocktail, and olives, with chocolate cream pie and chiffon cake for dessert. 

I emailed the guests to see if anybody is lactose intolerant or allergic to seafood.  So far, so good.  Nobody.  Burl mentioned he hates bell peppers, but I wasn’t going near those anyway.  Now, I am wondering if anybody hates cilantro or mayo!

    Gigi — okay, if you’re going to have a “local” blogger dinner, someday we’ll need to do a “foreign” one, made up of your bloggers from elsewhere, eh?
    But just as I thought of this, Gigi sent some sauce supplies from her recipies to Kansas! What fun, and mahalo!
    Have fun at your blogger dinner. DrumMajor

    DM, I’m so glad the sauces arrived in just 3 days. Enjoy!

    The next time you are in Honolulu, I will most certainly throw another bloggers party with you as guest of honor.
