A few pot-lucks in my life this week. Just down the road we had a fun pot-luck at church. It really was a special evening. Super nice group of people, happy kids in costumes, some adults in biblical inspirations- the old penguin costume with Harold (my stuffed penguin from my 21st birthday) took a ride. Joe made a delicious Asian Slaw salad and I took chocolate mint penguins to round out the theme. I don't think there was much chocolate on the arc.
Tomorrow we pot-luck at work! I have very fond memories of work pot-lucks from my URPA/Colwell House days...that group could cook! I picked up some yummy recipes from those days...Lyn's grape jelly/bbq sauce meatballs come to mind. Janice is keeping us festive- she brought in the Frankin-berry, Boo-Berry cereals to use for inspiration. I accepted and tonight put together these treats: shttp://hubpages.com/hub/Boo-Berry-Marshmallow-Treats They're a little too sweet for me but they're festive.
I'm also taking a salad with roasted pumpkin seeds to balance and offer a healthy contribution. Speaking of healthy and festive- at church someone did the clementine pumpkins- peeled with a tic-tac as the stem- tooo cute! I'll remember those for sure!
Pot lucks are something I do love as it is about sharing, and breaking bread together, and being around the table as family. I'm lucky to have great places this happens in my life on Newark-Granville Road.
