Well, its been a few weeks since the last Tuesday's Timesaver- sorry friends! If you missed the last 2 posts you can view them here and here. I love this idea from my friend Robin about doing pot-luck style dinners to keep meals inexpensive when you are entertaining. Again, start with that pantry! Say you have flour, yeast and cheese- well sounds like pizza to me! Have your friends bring their favorite toppings. By splitting things up a bit you are saving yourself time and money- and are still able to open your home and have a great time!
Here are a few of my favorite pot-luck style meals:
- Pizza (thanks Robin!)
- Chili- friends bring fixins
- Tacos/ Taco Salad
- Fondue (you provide the dips, friends bring the dippers
- BBQ's- great for summer- have friends bring their favorite meat. That always kind of grosses me out, so I like to provide the meat and have them bring sides :)
- Sub Sandwiches and Soup
- ...and of course Banana Splits for dessert!
Really and truly you can divide things up with any meal- keeps everyone involved and most importantly, its fun! What potluck style meals are your favorites?
