Creator of Deliciousness: Everybody! Potluck is tasty
From past years you may know that we celebrate “feast” days with what we call “orphan dinners” these are pot lucks for our extended “family” who may not have a family feast to join in the local area. Also some people like to have a few feast days if the weekend is planned out correctly.
This year we went from a table of 11, to a table of 15 on feast day. It was delicious and tasty and we sent everyone home with a food baby.
CTG our actual host was away for the weekend and left me (FFB) in charge of “monitoring” our Facebook event to make sure we had a balanced meal. I think I’m kind of old school when it comes to pot luck. I figure if 8 out of 10 people showing up bring pie, we are going to sample a whole lot of different desserts. So while I kept an eye on the event for numbers, I did nothing about steering menu choices. It worked out really well all on its own.
There was ham (fancy spiral cut w/black currant jelly glaze), mashed sweet potatoes, roasted brussel sproouts, 7lbs of scalloped potatoes, mixed veggies, ceasar salad, spring mix salad, apple crumble, apple pie, pumpkin pie, homemade Skor bars, chips and dip and fancy fizzy water for all. .Oh yeah and 2 lbs of fancy bacon from Red Barn.
The “glaze” on the ham was really just a jar of home made black current jelly rubbed on the ham for the last 10 minutes or so.
