Chips and homade salsa seem to do real well wherever we go.

Rolls are my weapon of choice as well. Easy, eveyrbody WANTS one, and whatever is left over, you can easily bring hom and use for your own meals.

I should have read this earlier! Oh well. Here's what I did this year (it turned out quite all right - maybe all the other people who did Li'l Smokies left the company over the past 12)

GLAZED WIENERS
Combine 1 jar (18oz.) apricot preserves and 1/2C (8oz.) mustard in crock pot on LOW
Chop up 6 green onions, going as far up the green as you care to
Add onions and 2 packages (32oz. total) Li'l Smokies (option: Cheddar Li'l Smokies)
Stir, stir, stir
Let sit for hours
Serve with toothpicks

{ I just want to get some hits on "Glazed Wieners." ;-) }

Feel free to double all amounts above, like I did. Sure, it's $20 for ingredients, but it's the HOLIDAY SEASON, PEOPLE.

I have a feeling this is very similar to the grape jelly/chili recipe Sec19Row53 offered last year (post #12), but THIS recipe I borrowed from a website based on recollections of having this very snack at a friend's house for many years in a row. I had no idea it was so easy!

I've got a potluck tomorrow. I asked around and apparently nobody was bringing any sort of vegetables so I'm bringing a salad. Romaine lettuce, red & yellow bell pepper, onions, tomatos, croutons, feta and parmesan cheese, and some homemade balsamic vinaigrette on the side.

I usually resort to the Krispy Kreme drive-thru.

Hot glazed doughnuts work every time.

I like coffee. I have a huge Tim Hortons mug that costs about $7 to fill up. That always brings the smiles.

Little Chinese BBQ ribs and/or chicken wings. Easy to make ahead and reheat. A good cold dish is a Waldorf Chicken salad with something to put ir on. My wife always makes some kind of decadent chocolate and nute dessert.

I have modified Alton Brown's cheesecake recipe and use 50-50 regular and fat free cream cheese, among other changes. I have made caramel, raspberry, chocolate (with or without a home make chocolate mousse on top), and black cherry cheesecakes. I'm working on a Key Lime one next.

Something to make even an Adkins diet follower say, "Now wait just a minute..."

I think my arteries hardened just looking at that picture.

The last pot luck I attended, the company sprang for soda, but there wasn't nearly enough diet coke or diet pepsi for the group - so that may be a suggestion.

Most times I bring the Velveeta/Salsa w/tortilla chips or Velveeta/Hormel Chili w/Fritos, but this year I was tasked with bringing a dessert, so I baked a 13X9 chocolate cake, split it, put the bottom in a clean glass dish, spread chocolate pudding on that, put the top half of the cake on, spread whipped cream on top, sprinkled it with cocoa powder and drizzled it with chocolate syrup. There's probably a name for it, but I just called it "Damn, That's Chocolate".

I have zero recollection of posting this and now I'm sad that the link doesn't work anymore.

What's with all the "I signed up for" and "I asked around?" That is not a potluck. That is lunch. No luck is involved. It's only a potluck if you don't know what anyone else is bringing. If everyone brings the same thing and all you have to eat is ice, buns, and a shrimp ring, so be it.

Anyway, I bring the same thing every time:

Salad:
1 can black beans (drained and rinsed)
2 cups kernel corn
1 cup diced celery
1 diced red pepper
1/4 cup of diced onion
2 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro

Dressing:
3 tbsp red wine vinegar
1 1/2 tbsp yellow mustard
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 tbsp oil

Mix, refrigerate, and marinate. Can easily be adjusted, doubled, tripled, etc. Travels easily, keeps well, relatively inexpensive, vegan-friendly, can be made en masse, and goes with everything (even ice, buns, and shrimp rings).

We had a Cinco de Mayo themed potluck today, maybe others out there are having get togethers and need an idea. Went with this recipe for Strawberry-Habanero Guacamole just to try something a little different:

http://www.rachaelrayshow.com/food/recipes/rick-bayless-guacamole-strawberries-and-habanero/print/

Eight or nine people made guac, but this was unique and good enough that it went quickly. Recipe originally came from

http://www.amazon.com/Frontera-Margaritas-Guacamoles-Rick-Bayless/dp/0393088928

Which has a lot of other great variations on Guac too.

We had a Cinco De Mayo lunch at church on Sunday - and I brought Churros. They disappeared quickly!
