“Bring one thing” potlucks

One very tiny wonderful thing – out of a whole slew of wonderfulnesses – that came out of a fabulous lunch with two awesome ladies today was the idea of a “modular potluck” or “bring one thing” potluck. We all love the idea of getting together over good local food, but potlucks bring a big time sink and, let’s face it, some pressure to make something local and awesome.

Instead, we decided next time we get together, each person will bring one simple item – bread, cheese, meat, carrot sticks – and when we all come together, it’ll be a meal. No need to fire up the stove, figure out something everyone will like, or find the time to make something elaborate.

I wish you could meet all the amazing people in my town. (And I wish I could meet all your amazing peeps, too!)
