Latest exchange

This latest exchange was wonderful.  10 people...lots of great variety!

Love Lindsay's tip:  Basically you bring plastic grocery bags to wrap each "meal up"...the reason is because lots of them meals come with several pieces and instructions....this way everything is kept together. Brilliant!
