We're sunk. Everyone's supposed to bring their Grandma's best dish to the potluck. Don't panic. Helen's Grandma was from Scotland. Yeah. But the Patakis cook Indian feasts. And the Mercantis still make 10 course Italian dinners. What was your Granny's specialty? Jell-o cube salad. Mmm ... sweet or savory?
If you promise the potluck stays low-key, I'll go. Promise? There will be no competitive culinary craziness? Absolutely not! Ok! Great. So what'll we bring? Simple recipes. Grilled garlic-lime tuna with Moroccan chermoula cilantro-cayenne marinade. Let the games begin!
Come on, honey. The neighborhood potlucks are fun. Fun?! Everyone brings something simple. Totally stress-free. Ha! Last year you made lemon-stuffed slow roasted sea bass with guacamole cilantro chutney. I won't do that again! Guacamole is over. Avocado grapefruit coulis will work.
