Smile Pot Luck

I am constantly invited to pot luck functions and was wondering if members would mind sharing their favourite pot luck dish. I am running out of ideas and tired of bringing the same ones.

Welcome to DC, Karen!

Can you tell us some of the foods you have taken in the past?

But maybe everyone looks forward to your bringing your old favorites! Our now exDIL was mandated to bring her sweet potatoes for Thanksgiving--not another thing would do.
Yes, what have you been bringing?

-------- ------------ --------------------------------
12 cups Pasta -- gemelli(twist pasta), uncooked
10 ounces leek soup, packet -- (6 packets)
12 cups milk
1 1/2 pounds crabmeat -- chunks, imitation, or use cooked chicken
10 cups spinach leaves -- baby, stems removed
1 1/2 cups Parmesan cheese -- freshly grated

Heat oven to 350.
spray chafing dish.
Cook & drain pasta

While pasta is cooking, mix soup mix & milk in a large pan, Heat to boiling, stirring constantly.

Cut up larger pcs. of crab (of chicken) if desired.

Jean, that sounds so good I can hardly wait for cold weather to make it!
Wine is the food that completes the meal.

a pot of chili or a chicken pot pie with a simple buscuit crust are easy to make and always welcome. In the summer a salad and 7 layer dip and tortilla chips goes well too.

other easy items: a chicken and wild rice casserole using the rice mix and a rotisserie chicken
chicken noodle green bean...basic green bean casserole with chicken cut up (again use a rotisserie chicken if you like)

Broccoli Wild Rice Casserole is a BIG fan favorite. And you can mess with the recipe a bit too. Asparagus works well.

Bringing Pot Luck Dishes To Friends Gatherings

A friend of mine has a lot of dinners at her house. I found that one of my favorites was a large empty bread filled with a spinach dip. She also made a cover for the bread with a bread handle on it. She made 2 and I have never seen so many people enjoying this dish.

I will try to contact Sandy and ask for her friend's number. I would love the receipe for myself and I will also share it with DC.
