Potlucks are my favorite way to dine...it's like going to an all-you-can-eat restaurant but the food is much better. Church ladies can cook...and that's a fact! You have to try everything at a potluck...it's required. After all, how would "Elsie" feel if you didn't try her special recipe for cherry crisp? Best not to risk offending anyone; eat everything. Counting calories at a potluck...forget it! I did however, take a lovely salad of mixed greens and mandarin oranges with home-made dressing that is both tasty and healthy. I got the recipe at the the Sisters Cafe blog; http://www.thesisterscafe.com/2011/05/green-salad-orange-dressing This recipe is easy and doesn't have too many ingredients...just my style. Since we have a superabundance of spinach, lettuce, kale, and radishes in our garden right now; this was a great way to share some of our bounty.
