Thirteen Dishes That Will Almost Certainly Be At Our Church’s Potluck Dinner Tonight

1.  Miss Phyllis’s chicken pot pie

2.  Brownies

3.  Devilled eggs

4.  A chicken casserole

5.  Another chicken casserole

6.  Some kind of jello salad

7.  Ms. Edna’s cobbler – probably blackberry

8. A hashbrown casserole

9.  a beef roast cooked with potatoes, carrots and onions

10.  a tossed salad

11.  a loaf of homemade bread

12. some cornbread

13.  some homecooked vegetables

All in all, it will be a very nice dinner.  The best part, though, will be talking and being with some really good people.

UPDATE:  The potluck dinner is now over.  I had 10 out of the 13 correct.  I think that’s a pretty good average.  We didn’t have eggs this time – no roast beef or chicken pot pie, either.  However, one person brought a big bowl of ripe and juicy strawberries and another bowl of CHOCOLATE dipping sauce for the strawberries.  Needless to say, that was a major hit!

    Nothing beats home-baked bread – yummy!

  4. Robin Says:

    Sounds delicious – I love deviled eggs! Hmmm… That’s the second reference I’ve seen to them today. I think it’s a sign that I should go make some myself.

    Happy TT, and enjoy the potluck.

    Hey, I know you! LOL

    My 13 are up. I tried to put in that Mr. Linky code but I don’t think I did it right.

    I would have brought number #3 and #9 if I were going to the church potluck. Have a great time!

  8. Jane Says:

    YUMMM! Can I come? I am drooling all over my computer! o ops:

  9. Friday's Child Says:

    Your #s 2,4,9,10 are making me hungry now.
    My T13 is up too.

  10. Christine d'Abo Says:

    Hungry…want brownies and devilled eggs…

  11. Janet Says:

    mmm, devilled aigs and blackberry cobbler…where’s your church?! I’m on my way!

  12. Chelle Says:

    Yeah, all of those sound familiar, only we call the hashbrown casserole “funeral potatoes”.

    I usually take salad and dressing, or dinner rolls (those are the only thing I have the time and desire for ) ).

    Also, when we go to these potlucks, we have to arrive early so we can see who is bringing what. )

    Good T13!


    TMS: It might sound bad, but I also look or ask to see who brought what. There are a few people that I just wouldn’t eat anything cooked in their kitchens. I’m not a neat freak, but when people don’t keep up with basic cleanliness, I get a little squeamish. I don’t hurt anyone’s feelings – and sometimes I go ahead and put the food on my plate if I think it would be obvious if I didn’t. But then I don’t really eat it – just push it around my plate and make it look like I tried it.

    Sounds like the homecoming spread at Oak City Assembly of God in Tallahassee 30 years ago — my granny always brought chicken and dumplins’, collards, and Italian cream cake …



  14. Jenn Says:

    I just had salad for dinner…man.

    You are so right about all of the chicken casseroles. I like to go around and try them all to see if I can determine all the differences. My own is a combo of my mom’s and my mother-in-law’s. Hashbrown Casserole is a great casserole. I love it.

    Thanks for visiting and wading through my Mom tribute. I had to do it. It was the only way I get through her birthday. )

    Where we used to live the church there had a potluck the first Wed. night of every month, and we loved it. We got to know the “regular” dishes and whose they were. One lady made scrumptious chicken and dumplings. Not only were they good in themselves, but that’s something I never make, so it was a double treat.

    It sounds wonderful!
