Menu Plan Monday ~ Jan 14/13
Welcome back menu planner extraordinaires! I had a pretty tasty week and even followed my menu plan exactly which doesn’t always happen :) My favorite dish though had to be the Hot Pizza Dip. Quick and easy to throw together for a fun appy night or even a potluck. We ate it with crackers but tortilla chips would have been good too.
Speaking of potlucks, I would love to hear how you handle them for your parties or church events. At our church here they do it by assigning dish types by last name which was a new experience for me. For example, last names from A to M would bring a main dish and N to Z would either bring a dessert or salad. It works fine I guess but something about telling people what to bring takes the luck out of the pot if you know what I mean. So being that I’m part of the organizing committee for the next potluck, we are going to attempt a true old fashion potluck where guests just bring whatever dish they want. It’s my favorite way to do it because it’s always fun to see what happens. It’s exciting. I never stress about it because I find that these things just have a way of working out :) I know there are people that always worry there won’t be enough food but a great rule of thumb for potlucks is each person brings a dish big enough to serve the number of people in their own family. I love potlucks and I love seeing how God shows up. How about you?
