It’s almost the weekend! I’m especially excited for a few reasons…
It’s a long weekend!
It’s Canada Day weekend, so there will be fireworks!
I’ll be attending a family reunion! There will be lots of food, fun, and of course, family! I’m hoping to participate in a few of the traditions. There will be a baseball game (I have a foot injury, here’s hoping that it will be healed enough that I feel comfortable running!). Hollow tournament (our favourite card game), Nana and I always play as a team. And of course, there will be way too much food!
I need to dream up a potluck dish to share on Sunday. Something yummy, yet can be affordable when preparing a dish for 10-15 people. What is your favourite (festive) item to bring to a potluck?
Family, if you’re reading this, feel free to make suggestions (or vote for your favourite option)!
An amusing side note: Bryan used to call these “Eskimo Bars” when I first met him. He hadn’t had a nanaimo bar before moving to Canada. I would frequently grab one for him after work. I’d like to make these at home at some point!
I would likely have to double or triple this recipe. While I love raw desserts, I’m not sure how others would react. Would they eat it? Would I be taking it home? Definitely couldn’t finish that much chocolate on my own!
Bryan frequently asks me to make cookies. I usually say not. They never turn out quite right. And when they do, there’s too many because I only want to eat one.
I just love zucchini bread. Nana used to make it for me when I came to visit.
A dip is one of those go-to items for a potluck. This one looks very interesting and creative!
