Oh, no, potluck night!

Tuesday, June 11, 2013

Yeah, here it is...potluck night. What to do? I wasn't feeling great this morning and didn't want to go out to get something to fix, so I decided to go, get it set up, and get it started, (you know, welcome everyone, get someone to pray over the food, etc.) and then come home. I've done it before and it works pretty well, usually.
BUT I found out this afternoon that some of my friends who never go to potlucks anymore, were coming to this one. Well, I can't let my friends get together without ME, can I? So I came home to raid the cupboard for something to fix. The cupboard is a little bare right now.
I cooked up some vermicelli and put in a can of Hunt's Chunky Vegetable spaghetti sauce, a can of green beans and a can of corn. It doesn't look pretty, but I tasted it and it tasted great. Remember, I was hungry. And if I have to bring a bunch of it home, at least it's healthy.
So I won't promise not to eat a little something I shouldn't, but I'll keep it LITTLE. See you around the blog-ateria.
Lots of love,

    Hi Janet, I hope you had a great time at the Buffet sharing food and good conversation with your friends. Wow, your dish sounds tasty and I doubt I'd have enough imagination to come up with it. Good Bless and Take very good care of yourself.

    Sounds like you made a great choice and you will have a good time and definitely have something to eat that you love. That sort of thing usually disappears FIRST at our potlucks. Bet you don't have much to take home.

    Well, Janet, I'm sure we'll all be anxious to find out how you did--but I'm sure you did well! I agree with Karen, you are very inventive! (hugs) Noel

    That's being pretty creative, Janet!! Good thinking (and shopping in your own cupboard)!! I got a call today to fix a salad for a funeral luncheon tomorrow and did NOT want to go to town to buy something, so I did what you did. Raided the cupboards! cooked up some twisty pasta, nuked a bag of mixed vegetables, dumped them together and added about 1/2 bottle lite Italian dressing. Tomorrow I'll add a couple chopped Roma tomatoes I have in the fridge and that's all they're getting!
