Sometimes pot lucks scare me.
A potluck is good, but that should not be the primary focus of the Church.
As Presbyterians, we have "covered dishes" not "pot LUCKS".
I love potlucks and I love making food for them.
Once, the pastor announced a potluck and ask the ladies to bring a "covered dish".
Me, being a jokester, did just that.
I brought a "covered dish".........empty.
(I also brought food, but everyone got a big kick out of it.)
Now, the pastor asks for a "covered dish" with food in it. :laugh:
I hate going to pot lucks.
i do not like crowds of people. or that many hands in the food that i/my family will be eating.
There are only certain people's foods I will eat.
i can not stand the thought of eating something that i don't know anything about the person who cooked it's "kitchen" habits. when we go to dh's granny's house, i bring my own milk and cold cuts. the milk will sit out on the counter/table until whole milk smells like butter milk and they will drink it any way...sorry...i can't. i have had food poising before...do not want to do it again.
I sometimes make foods for pot lucks.
if there isn't any way for me to get out of going to the pot luck i will fix food and i help serve.
Can ya'll tell TLB's not a very trusting soul? :laugh:
Then again, I only eat the food of folks I know. and I'd rather not eat in a large crowd (though I feel the same in a crowded restarant). And I only cook for potlucks if I can't get out of it.
WAIT a minute! One of the reasons I go to a large church is so I don't have to do the whole potluck thing. We have a Wednesday night meal that is cooked at the church by our lovely kitchen staff and that is potluck enough. (and a big enough crowd to make me get my meal and go find somewhere quiet to eat it)
I was in a little group discussion when we were talking about an upcoming activity, and someone said, "We're supposed to bring a covered dish." I said, "Do we have to put anything in it?" Everyone thought the idea was funny, but one did carry it out (not me), and I don't recall anyone thinking it was very funny then.
Another time, at a church dinner one night of revival week, a cake-baking contest was included. One guy's "cake" was an old shoe, the laces 'laced' with icing, and an attempt at using that decorating junk to make a rose or 2, and a couple of candles. He wrote his "recipe" on a card taped to the pan-- "Take shoe, place in over for 2 minutes without turning on the heat, ice the laces, squirt out the roses, and place the candles in the unused lace holes." They made a special award for him... "The Bomb."
