CwU #32 Theme - @cookwithus Pot Luck Dinner to Benefit @adollaraday Charity

The Cook with Us team, @chefsteve, @pandamama and @offoodandart, have been looking forward to this week’s charity fundraiser for a long time. We are so happy to have partnered with @adollaraday to help them expand their reach and help even more people around the world. @pennsif the creator of @adollaraday has done such a great job at finding causes to help out. This link, details how @adollaraday have allocated over $700 USD in October 2018 alone. The work they have done is amazing and we totally support them and hope that you will too.

This week we are switching things up a bit. Instead of having everyone compete for the prize money, we are hosting a pot luck dinner where we all cook (Including the CwU team!) for each other. We are looking for people to sign up to make dishes for our pot luck dinner. Ideally, we would like to have a full meal including a cocktail, appetizer, soup, main course, side dish and dessert. For our weekly winner’s post we will post a collage of photos and videos of everyone’s dishes along with the grand total of the donations received. We are excited to announce that the real winners this week are the people supported by a @adollaraday charity that will receive our weekly prizes (18 Steem and 5 SBD). In addition to our CwU donation, the founding members of CwU will also contribute SBD or Steem and we hope too that our community will donate to this great charity.

We have already had a lot of interest in this event and the following people have committed to making the following dishes. Others have committed to making donations. We will add up the donations for the winner’s post.

@chefsteve - Thanksgiving roast turkey
@pandamama - Roast Lamb with vegetables
@offoodandart - Side dish
@plantstoplanks - “Put me down for a side dish! 😁”
@lizelle - “I'll definitely make something, will let you know”
@celestialcow - “I choose dessert! great idea and cant wait :)”
@edenmichelle - “I will make some soup - love this idea”

Thank you all in advance for your generosity in making donations and a lovely meal! We are honored to be able to help out such a great organization as @adollaraday!

A HUGE thanks to @curie and @sneaky-ninja for making Season Three happen!

The A Dollar A Day charitable giving project.

Thanks for your delicious contribution @celestialcow!
Sorry, I did not have a chance to sign up ahead of time.

Thanks for your delicious contribution @plantstoplanks!

Thanks @offoodandart! If only we could get together for an actual pot luck. :)

Oh that would be so great! Who knows, it may just happen someday for some of us. That would be so lovely!

Hi @pandamama, @offoodandart and @chefsteve- is it too late to contribute and make one of these dishes, maybe a dessert or side?

It’s not too late. Yeah, a side or dessert works! Looking forward to your entry.

So excited to see what everyone posts this week for our virtual pot luck! I'm sure it will come out to be a delicious meal, and even better that it will benefit such a wonderful charitable effort.

Welcome to Cook with Us and thanks for your entry! =D
