Favorite fellowship foods!

We had a covered dish dinner after church today in our fellowship hall. My husband preached and I sang a special, so I really enjoyed that. I usually like to eat what the other ladies have cooked...I can eat my own cooking at home! Although, there are some dishes I'd rather skip over like collards and chicken salad. I don't do collards, I don't cook them and I don't eat them. In case you're not familiar with them, they're a leafy green veggie, similar to spinach. I don't eat anyone else's chicken salad unless I know them REALLY well. Just don't like the surprises I find in some people's chicken salad. Today I took a casserole with smoked sausage, potatoes, carrots and onions and a broccoli casserole, banana pudding and of course, cold sweet tea. My favorite foods there today were chicken and pastry, green beans with bacon, pork tenderloin, barbequed pork, sweet potatoes, and all the yummy desserts. When you go to pot luck dinners or covered dish dinners or dinner on the ground or whatever it's called where you are, do you tend to eat more of what you brought or what others have cooked?

I tend to eat what others have prepared. I am a lousy cook, and their offerings are much better than mine.

What's your favorite thing that others bring? Are you really that bad a cook?

@1creekgirl Well, I am a do-not-like-to-cook-or-bake person and a vegetarian. My mom said she always begged me to learn from her, but she said I was always studying, so she never could get me to stop to learn to cook. I really do love the Jell-O salads others bring!! Some look like works of art to me.

@Corbin5 oh, I love Jell-O salads. I make one with lime Jello, cream cheese, pecans, celery and marshmallows. It's delish!

I love pot lucks. I tend to eat what others brought. I can eat mine any time. I don't eat chicken, anybody's chicken. I'm allergic to it. I need to be careful of those kinds of salads because chicken and tuna look an awful lot alike until you taste them. So I always ask. That kind of surprise I don't need. I have no trouble with deserts as long as they don't have peanuts in them. Another allergy. Still with all that people bring to those things, there's more than enough to fill my plate to overflowing. I'm glad you had a good day after church.

Thanks, Valerie. I'm sure you need to be careful with allergies. I don't eat just anyone's chicken salad, not because of allergies, but because I'm very peculiar about what's in it!

I'm sure with allergies you have to be pretty careful.

@1creekgirl yes ma'am, cross-contamination can cause many troubles that most folks jest don't comprehend.

Thanks. We have a covered dish dinner every 5th Sunday and I always love to hear my husband preach. (Except when he's preaching at me!)

Haven't been to anything like that in ages. I do remember that the few times I went I preferred to eat what others made. In this way I could find new combinations to like and collect some useful recipes. You made me so hungry mentioning all that great food.

Someone always asks someone for the recipe!

That looks yummy! Whenever we have potlucks, I always bring lumpier, or the Filipino version of egg rolls. Or my signature pasta salad with y homemade dressing. When I am running out of time, I will bake some chocolate chip cookies - I just cheat and use the frozen dough from Hershey's. I tend to eat more of what I cooked myself, or those which came in packages. Not being a food snob, but I have had food poisoning from pot lucks before. I know it is not right to blame anybody, not that I would, but I also do not like being sick.

So does that mean you're a good cook, but just don't like what you cook?
