Tip: Take Recipe to Potlucks

By Ron 181

When taking a dish to a party or potluck dinner, write the recipe for the dish on several cards. Put one in front of the dish, so guests will know what's inside and give the others to those who want the recipe.

Tip: Label Buffet Offerings

By Janet Hounsell 9 2

Everyone is either on a strict diet or allergic to various edibles these days! If you're having a buffet meal, indoors or out, you can avoid answering the question,"Can you tell me what's in this?" over and over again. Year round, save those plastic pick things that a florist puts into a bouquet of flowers (to hold a card) and get them out at party time.

Print on an index or fancier card what the sandwiches are filled with, or just identify a casserole as "Mom's Potato Salad" and prop these identifying cards into the proper offerings!

Hi,

I save all the containers from cottage cheese, sour cream, cool-whip etc all year long for our family's big Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners. There's usually about 20 of us, and all the ladies bring food to be exchanged while we're doing the clean-up.

While the food is still sitting out, we fill containers, and stow them in boxes or coolers to be taken home. It's a really neat way for the good dinner to be extended into the following day or two. I keep plenty of stickers for labeling...not only the food, but who made it. It keeps us together for a little while longer, and is such a good way to give a little extra of ourselves at special times.

All the best to everyone,

Tip: Labeling Dishes for a Potluck

Whenever you go to a potluck type party, label your dish with a return address label. Don't forget to label your utensil (i.e. spatula, serving spoon), too.
