"Since we are a small group it's difficult to spend any time in the kitchen."
Even when we do bring food that needs cooking it's hard to pry you away from the props and get you to spark up the grill.
However, I agree, easy-cookin' food is the best (particularly in light of the above). Since I'm on a healthy, half-assed diet these days, though, I look forward to indulging at these M&T's (they're my cheat days) so if it's particularly fattening or greasy, I'm all for it.
And as Bob has volunteered to bring the porterhouses, I'll bring the adult beverages.
Yet beer-soaked brats do sound good. Maybe we can whip up some peppers and onions to go with them. Damn! I'm making myself hungry -- and thirsty! -- now.
