Raise your hand if you didn’t let Eat in Month keep you from hanging out with friends. Me either! Potlucks were my go-to for January. Actually, I guess potlucks are sort of my entertaining go-to, in general. I just love the collaborative spirit of the potlucks and enjoying all the delicious creations my friends make and bring.
Kseniya brought the coolest pot luck concoction I’ve ever seen – Russian dumplings. Not only did she bring the dumplings, but she brought an assortment of sauces, condiments, and spices to go with it. It was an interactive pot luck dish!
I sampled a little bit of everything, including a slice of the bread Dion brought – locally baked Duke’s black and tan bread with lots of sesame seeds.
For the dumplings, I took Kseniya’s advice and made them with traditional toppings – butter and sour cream…plus some green onions (but there were lots of other options).
I also made a simple dessert – apple cranberry crisp, a recipe from a co-worker.
I’d like to tweak the recipe some more, but when I get it right, I’ll definitely share it here on the blog!
The other star of the show was a Dion creation – a fish bowl full of the biggest jello shot I’ve ever seen.
It was like edible art! Fun, yummy, and a hit with the girls.
All the eats were super good. My friends (from this potluck and others) are such good cooks! Maybe that’s why I like the potlucks so much? In fact, I have another one lined up for tonight. It’s time for another Super Dance-Bowl !
Reader question: Are you watching the Superbowl tonight? If yes, who are you cheering for? If no, are you doing something else fun like a Super Dance-Bowl?
