How about a great side dish, full of flavor and easy to toss on the grill? My husband and son loved these. I didn't eat them cause, well I don't eat mushrooms.
These were great and used up leftovers in the fridge. So it's a win win far as I'm concerned.
My friends will tell you that I used to be the hostess queen. Every Friday night for 4 years and then again on Saturday night for two years we hosted a potluck at our home. Our average was 25 the first four years and 35 the last two. I loved it. Every single minute of it. The preparing, the shopping, the cooking, the serving and yes even the clean up. I love feeding people and entertaining. Having that many happy tummies in my house fed me, deep down in my soul. Each family would bring a dish and I'd line them up on the counters. We had seating in our dining room, on the deck, the porch, in the bonus room and anywhere there was a spot. We have hosted as many as 65 folks at one time. Rarely were there leftovers. At one point we had several single folks and young military men, they would just give me money and ask me to prepare a dish that they loved. I was happy to oblige. I'd cook for hours, sometimes days in preparation for our potluck dinners. Afterwards we would go outside and have a BIG bonfire, courteous of my firebug I mean youngest son. He loved to build fires, the bigger the better. You can see one such here on my blog. We would talk, play games, sing, and just sit around talking for hours and I mean hours. A lot of times I'd wake up the next morning to an additional 5-12 people in the house. If it was too late I'd tell them to just stay. I didn't want anyone hit by a drunk driver or hit a deer in the dark. I'd much rather them sleep over. So they did. Then I'd do a big breakfast and we'd enjoy a few hours, sometimes another whole day of visiting. No I didn't get tired of it and I miss it. I love those folks. A lot of them were young adults who became my bonus kids, most are married with kids now and scattered across the country but we have Facebook so we stay in touch.
So to answer the question...I'd rather host. Thank you Karen!
