To focus on better serving our members, we've decided to shut down the POF forums.
While regular posting is now disabled, you can continue to view all threads until the end of June 2019. Event Hosts can still create and promote events while we work on a new and improved event creation service for you.

I can't believe anyone would show up with melted frozen pies for you to cook...that's just crazy!!! As for offering to help - I offer, if I'm told no - well, that's fine. If they accept - that's fine too. I had dinner yesterday, up at 6 cooking and 6 PM just finishing up the cleanup. It's a lot of work! But I do enjoy it. My mother dropped off a dish the day before so I could get it in the "cooking rotation" - at least I knew, and had planned for that!
Regarding the dinner guests i do have a few suggestions.
People usually want to be or appear helpfull.
I always say i have the meal covered though i need a bag of sugar or stick of butter. At times i will up the anti and suggest that i need a 3/4 gauge 50 foot extention cord or a crock pot that holds a 25 pound turkey.
Believe me people will stop offering anything after those above requests.
