Register Here for PlusOne October Weekend

Come and get it...

Saturday I had an interesting conversation with a good guy friend. We were chatting about PlusOne weekend and inevitably the conversation turned to talking about the meal situation. Obviously.

After hearing about the food details, my friend informed me that CLEARLY I have done a poor job advertising this part of the weekend. Duly noted.

His understanding was that we are going to be eating various Costco-esque things (hot dogs, lemon cake, big tub of red vines, family sized stoffers lasagnas, blah blah). Anyone who knows me, can vouch I would never turn down a costco hot dog or a slice of lemon cake.. but that's not what you are getting at PlusOne.

Nope. Dot. Com.

Here's the real situation:

1. First off, all meals are prepared for us by the staff of the retreat location. And we get to eat together in the main lodge summer camp style.

2. The following meals are covered for the weekend: Saturday breakfast, lunch and dinner. Sunday breakfast and lunch (this will be at the chapel after church).

3. The following is a sample menu of what the retreat typically serves so we will be getting this menu or something on par with this:

Breakfast options:
  • Scrambled eggs
  • Sausage or bacon
  • Breakfast potatoes
  • Oatmeal with raisins & brown sugar
  • Biscuits with gravy
  • Danish and Muffins
  • Assorted cereals
  • Yogurt
  • Fresh sliced fruit
  • Pancakes and Waffles
  • Strawberries, blueberry & maple syrup
  • Chicken (or beef) enchiladas
  • Cheese enchiladas
  • Mexican rice
  • Refried beans
  • Tri-colored tortilla chips with Guacamole, fresh salsa, sour cream
  • Complete Salad bar
  • New York steak
  • Lemon baked salmon fillet
  • Vegetable
  • Potatoes with Beef Gravy
  • Complete Salad bar
  • Garlic Bread or Rolls
  • cheesecake or chocolate cake
Do we have to do any of the cooking? No
Do we have to do the dishes? No

I do love me some Costco, but yeah.. having someone else do the cooking while we get to play and hang out together? Not such a bad thing..
