Here is the pan I brought home last night. I wouldn't say it was a huge win but considering the serving utensil was a pie knife (only thing left in the kitchen) it's not too bad, but I've done better.
Our ward had an international dinner this weekend where everyone was suppose to bring a potluck item from their native country, where they served their mission or lived for a period of time. I was feeling lazy and not much in the mood to cook Chinese food so I made funeral potatoes (and you know I didn't skimp on the cornflakes) labeled from "Utah". I put it next to some Asian dumplings and fried plantines. I also made green JELLO but it didn't set up in time. My gallbladder ended up acting up because I had to try everything.
But I really wanted to share with you a little thing I do every time I make food for a party or pot luck. It isn't something I should really be proud and I probably shouldn't be sharing it publicly, but I keep an eye on my dish to see if people are eating it. If my pan is empty at the end of the night I feel like a winner, if it isn't empty I will never take that dish to a pot luck again. This part is really bad, I especially love when I set my pan next to another pan of the same dish and mine is gone and the other pan isn't. I know, I know I'm a bad person.
Am I alone in this or do you guys do the same thing?
