We ARE sooooo over due for a POT LUCK!!!
the theme is Mediterranean.
i challenge you to research and find the most authentic Mediterranean recipes. keep in mind the countries that have inspired the Mediterranean diet all surround the Mediterranean Sea. In Europe, parts of Italy, Greece, Portugal, Spain, and southern France adhere to principles of the Mediterranean diet, as do Morocco and Tunisia in North Africa. Parts of the Balkan region and Turkey follow the diet, as well as Middle Eastern countries like Lebanon and Syria.
Those that want to run with the comfort zone of "Italian" please remember fresh veggies, olive oil, seafood, tomatoes, grilled meats. Less emphasis on heavy, creamy, buttery stuff.
#1 you must post what you want to bring in advance so that we don't bring 5 same kind of food.
#2 commit to bringing something only if you know you will follow through rain or shine.
#3 if you bring a meat dish the event will be completely free (meat is expensive)
if you bring a veggie dish there is a $5.00 fee
for the rest of the food lovers coming to eat it will be $15.00
(fees will pay for non alcoholic beverages, plates, silverware and napkins, use of facilities, and service especially for the mess we leave)
