(The following is an email from Don Lister to Juneann regarding his collecting all of the ingredients.
Hi Juneann, just thought I'd let you know not to worry.  Cora send me to the store to get your stuff.  Anyway I forgot the list but I got a hell of a memory.  I picked up 24 pounds of onions and about the time I was picking out the sweet potatoes this doll walked by (had to be 38s) so I made a small mistake and got 38 sweet potatoes.  Also if I remember there was 6 lbs of Jalapeano peppers.  (sounds like a bunch to me)  615 cans of black beans sounds like plenty.  May blow the roof off the ranch house but that was on your list.  Six wedges?  I got one in my golf bag.  I'll pick up a couple dozen in lime green?  I called the doctor and ask him what a TBS was and he said I would need to make an appointment.  I just got a box of 144 lot better deal.  When I finished shopping I called home and she said just to double everything.  Well after I rented a trailer I got home   Well she said I need to go back and get the corn and gloves.  I picked up 45 cups of corn and a pair of gloves.  Don't worry I got everything you ordered.  Don)
