GFG Grocery Poll

Hey there, GFGers! I’ve taken on planning our food & bev grocery list, so I have a simple little poll for you to fill out.

The one thing I learned from doing this for the Vegas GFG is that the best laid plans… are not really necessary. So this time the plan will be simpler.

I’m thinking we’ll stock up on simple breakfast options, snacks and drinks right away and then figure out what to do about possible at-home meals once we get there & see the set up. We can always throw together a quick meal of grilled burgers with store bought salads if we decide we want to hang out at the homestead rather than going out.

I know we have some vegetarians, so we’ll plan any meals to include veg options. If there are other dietary restrictions to consider, please let me know in comments.

I think it’d be fun if those who want to bring some edible specialty from your area to share w/the group. This isn’t required, just something to consider, if you feel like doing it.

Thanks for taking this on, Z! Let me know if there's anything I can do. I'll try to think of something from Austin, though we aren't really known for our food, just our music. Too bad I'm not still in Buffalo, we have tons of great specialty food there.

Count your blessings - if you were still in Buffalo, you'd have been expected to bring wings, which could get very messy in your luggage!

This list is making me hungry! I picked stuff that I liked, but none of it is really necessary for me except having some fruit.

I'll think of something to bring from my area. Maybe I can also think of a mocktail for the non-drinkers.

Thanks for getting us started!

I agree about fruit. Since I've been on Weight Watchers I consume mass quantities of it.

ha ha ha ha ha! i am the only one who filled the alcohol part with actual alcohol, I look like a drunk among saints! =D (that's ok!)

I checked every wine option because it depends what we eat (maybe it should be bought as we go, too, by the people who do want do drink it), and for hard alcohol... well Vodka is classic, especially with the OJ I checked elsewhere (but rum goes well with the coke, too ;) ). Again, I can buy my own ;)

Lou, you lush! ;)

We should probably buy the booze as we go. I just thought that if there was a clear preference for something, we could add it to the grocery list, but it doesn't look like there's any one thing that we're all going to want to drink.

I do think that you can't go wrong with vodka.

Thanks for doing this, Zee!

There is a sad lack of coffee on that beverage list. ;D No matter - I can bring my own.

Ha, you're right, I didn't include coffee! See, for me, coffee is a no-brainer. I was planning on bringing some, just to be sure we had some that was strong enough. ;)

Ahahahaha! We are of the same mind on this one. And I'm so amused that water's on the beverage list, but coffee is automatically assumed. Heeee...
