Once I decide what to bring, it's time to label it, identify it, make it all pretty.
We will also bring a copy of the recipe. This is a new requirement, but I think it's going to be helpful for those with dietary restrictions. It will also help those of us who want to make sure that canned goods are processed according to current recommendations.
For each type of item we bring, there is a corresponding Swap Sheet. This is where people will 'bid' on our items. The first part of the Swap involves time to try samples, and bid on what we like. The second half of the swap is the most chaotic... when we actually wheel and deal and find the people whose stuff we want and also want our own stuff! The first time we did this, we had 40 people and it was hectic. This swap will probably be around 30, which I think is actually a better number.
I can't wait to see what I come home with!
