What To Bring To Thanksgiving Dinner by Sooner!

Yes!   I know I just had a "discussion" about how I hate unplanned food brought when people come to dinner.  But I read these suggestions in my e-mail today and love them:

 

1. An apron. Bring one, wear one, but come in and say to the hosts: I'm here to help!  Put me to work!  Like Superman arriving! 

 

2. A box of freezer bags and/or good disposable storage containers.

 

3. Some stain-remover pens or individual stain-remover wipes.

 

My own favorite: New dish towels or dish cloths!  Fancy kitchen soap also maybe.

 

I had a laugh when I read this and thought how cute (and welcome) the apron especially for a friend or family get-together.  Maybe matching aprons for you and the host? Woman Very Happy

I really like all these, especially the apron one. I once spilled a big glass of red wine all over my neighbor's tablecloth....I should have brought a huge tub of laundry detergent!!!

Hand sanitizer and rubber gloves to help wash dishes.

I'd bring my own toilet paper...after having attended  several "events" where the host had run out...

  • An alcoholic beverage
  • A really gooey dessert

Love the apron idea!

Give the cook a break and do all the dishes.

I love the apron idea. My niece gave me one for a Christmas dinner party that is red with an embroidery saying "Kitchen Diva".

I have done the Ziploc containers for many years but have never considered the others.  Love the apron suggestion.
