For many of us November is the month of Thanksgiving. It is a time for loved (and liked) ones to gather together and share a meal. One of the traditions that comes with this is that of the pot luck. It is always exciting to see what everyone else brings to the table, literally. Will it be a bold new dish or a family favorite that everyone looks forward to year after year.
While some cooks look forward to creating dishes that serve a large number of people, some of us struggle to find a reliable recipe that is easy and tasty! The other consideration is how well well this travel? If you have ever experienced leaky sweet and sour meatballs in your vehicle, You will appreciate the additional factor of transportation ease.
This month's recipes are focused on choosing recipes that serve a crowd, are easy to make, and travel well. To go with that are some addition tips on hosting and attending a potluck.
If you are the host don't forget to provide utensils, napkins, plates and cups. Other tips include:
- Don't be miserly and demand that guests bring food and drinks and accessories. You're a host, not a conference center!
- Have ice on hand even if others are bringing beverages.
- Provide seasonings and condiments, especially salt and pepper.
- Don't be greedy.
If you are a guest:
- Choose a dish that requires minimal preparation. Don't expect the host's kitchen to be yours to use.
- If the host has planned a theme or asked for a specific category of dish try to honor the request. If you can't, at least inform them ahead of time.
- Don't be the store-bought pro. If you are able to do so, make something every once in while.
- Don't be greedy.
