Potlucks. Potlucks. More potlucks.

What's in that casserole? Looks like a lot of this and that and everything else. "Dig in," they say. "Aren't you hungry?" Well, yeah, I am. But that casserole you're foisting on me gives not a clue as to what's in it. And, am I to poll all the party attendees to find out who made what, and ask for the recipe?

My solution? Avoidance. What's yours?

haha! I completely share the feeling! I too, often avoid. But with a family such as I have? Its hard too! Sometimes I give in to a teeny weenie taste. Just to satisfy the taste buds. I just hang around peeps that sings a lot, dance a lot and talk a lot...avoid the buffet table!

i skip the food and go straight for the drinks(jj:))..... but sad to say dealing with the carbs in a beer is much easier than guessing on the food.

Beer, yes! Much safer for me than booze or even wine. We make wine with a group of people and I really like it...but if I drink it before my food kicks in, my bG crashes.
