For over seven years now we’ve met once a month with six other couples for bible study, and we’ve been friends for even longer. First we go out just as couples for a dinner date (it’s often the only time each month that Kent & I are out alone and can actually talk), and then everyone meets at someone’s home, whoever’s turn it is to host. (Read more about our bible study friends.) We pray together and have some good discussions on whatever bible study we’re into at the time, but we also laugh a LOT and have some deep talks, too. We depend on each other like family and are thankful for the support and advice on parenting or whatever issue might weigh heavily on us at the moment. Something else fun is that many of these friends were into healthy eating waaaay before I was, so they’re also Real Foodies! (Here are past posts from Lyn & Amy, Sue, & Michelle, and there are recipes throughout my blog from many of these friends, too.) We always have some great food when we get together, and they love to joke about all my past food flops – yes, I have a lot of those, as all you regular readers know. 🙂
Our Annual Christmas Potluck
Each year in December we do a Christmas potluck. I posted pictures of our home when we hosted it a couple years ago. I don't know why I haven't done a post on this every year, maybe I will from now on.
(Before you read on, I want to give you the nudge to be sure and read the comments for this post where a couple things are covered that I missed…)
Last Friday it was at Michael & Lyn’s, check out their gorgeous decor:
This appetizer was SO good, even if my picture taking skills don’t reflect that in the slightest. I’ll post the recipe soon and maybe with a better picture. We had more appetizers, but apparently I messed up and didn’t get pictures of those, sorry Amy B.! (I loved your cheese ball, though!)
I made a fruit salad with a homemade vanilla pudding dressing:
I love potlucks, but…
It’s not easy coming up with a good potluck dish that everyone loves, that will serve a lot of people, and that is made with Real Food. What are your favorite potluck recipes?
