Group Guidelines

Our group is experimenting with the a modification of the guidelines found at this blog.
  • Make one meal for each person in the group.  I'll try to keep it to 5ish.  When the number of people in the group changes you will receive an email.
  • We will exchange meals on a set date and time each month. Currently it is the second Monday of the month at 8:30pm at Valerie’s house.
  • Each meal should feed 4 people.
  • Meals should be in an aluminum dish or a Ziplock brand Freezer bag (anything else doesn’t freeze well).
  • Let's try a make reasonably priced dishes--no need to buy expensive or exotic ingredients.
  • Write on the package with permanent marker what the meal is, the basic instructions, and the date (example: Chickpea Casserole, 350 for 30 min, 8/25/11,).  You will probably have to pull the meal out of the freezer ahead of time so that it can thaw.  Write the cook time that should be used once the meal is thawed.
  • Let's try to not experiment on the group. Please try the meal first or be reasonably sure that it will be awesome.
  • Do I need to be vegan? Omnivores are welcome to participate as long as the food shared is completely vegan.
  • If you decide you don’t want to be in the Meal Exchange anymore let Valerie know ASAP so other people can adjust the number of meals they are making.
  • Staples: Rice & Noodles are considered staples.  If a meal is to be served on top of rice or noodles then those ingredients don’t have to be included.  Otherwise include everything else the recipe calls for.
