Wednesday, May 20 is our end-of-the-year party. I’m looking for some help to provide party food. Here are the items I need and the recipe/links. Please send me an email or leave a comment if you would like to commit. You do not bring to the full quantity (just note, “I’ll bring 2 recipes” or “40 of that one”).  Remember, you will get 15 points towards shopping if you bring food.
