Pot Luck Love

THE CUTES
Potluck outfits are my favorite.


We are having a Potluck lunch tomorrow after church (you should totally come!) and I don't know what to make. I usually take this but would love to try something new (preferably something I won't have to heat up.)


Suggestions?


p.s. you've been asking again about her dresses. We heart Misha Lulu. Also, read The one about Ivy's clothes.

  3. I agree about the homemade mac n cheese however I would say baked mac n cheese. It's the bomb and I've even got a recipe if you need one!

  4. Love the potluck outfits. Ariel wears some and those are my favorites, you can really see her personality shine through on them.

    also I normally bake some home made bread and bring some honey butter. People love it!

    Just pre slice before you go so you don't have to worry about it there.

  5. I always mix it up I love cooking. I grew up attending a southern baptist church, so we had potlucks all the time. My staples are Red Velvet Cake, Green Bean Casserole, Pizza Dip.

  6. I love broccoli salad at pot lucks.
    Or grape salad.
    Or crackers with cream cheese & olive dip.

  7. This Vegetable pizza is really good. I've taken it a few places. I also made it once for me to have to snack on at home. You could probably make 2 of them to take to your potluck. And if you really wanted to, I bet you could make the crust on your own so you don't have to buy so many crescent rolls. http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Vegetable-Pizza-I/Detail.aspx

  9. i always bring something that has kale in it. or collards. because people are always horrified when they love my dish and find out what they've eaten.

  10. Hmm, I always do some kind of curry/rice dish... could be kept warm in a crock pot though? :)

  11. We're eating w/ church peeps tomorrow, too. They picked to all gather ingredients for sandwiches so I'm bringing a deli tray and prob. some grapes.

    Adelaide's b-day was yesterday but we did a little family brunch party today and she wore a misha lulu dress -- the pink one with three ruffles down the front? SO FUN.

  12. A big Italian pasta salad would be perfect. It's inexpensive and so very easy.

  13. Also, I want that outfit in my size. I think yellow leggings would look amazing on me. :)

  14. I have absolutely no idea what you should cook, because I'm terrible at it. But I wanted to tell you that Ivy is the most beautiful little girl I have ever seen. Literally. Ever. And her mama's keen fashion sense keeps her in some adorable clothes. I would give my left arm to be on the receiving end of your donations. Beautiful picture of a beautiful girl.

  15. Does it really matter when you're toting around something as delicious as your Ivy La Rue?! :)

  16. If I'm taking a hot dish as an entrée, I make sour cream enchiladas. They are simple to make and my recipe makes at least 3 pans.
    If I'm taking an appetizer, I make "Mexican corn dip" which is 3 cans of Mexican corn, 1/2 cup of sour cream, 1/2 cup of real mayonnaise, and if you want you can cut up and add 1 jalapeño, a small can of green chilies, and 1/2 cup of shredded cheddar...but I never add the last stuff. Then I serve them with Tostitos white corn chips.
    If I'm taking a dessert, I make 4 dozen of my chocolate chip cookies.

  17. I always bring pumpkin or banana bread - you don't have to heat it up, and kids love it!

  18. Couscous salad are easy to make and so tasty I love middle eastern flavor :-)

  19. I'm not much for cold food recipes, sorry. Hope you all have a wonderful time though. : )

  20. This site is charming. But I have a serious question. Did you ever think to question the term 'babywearing'?

    Since we know that infants are human beings, why would we use a term that objectifies them? We know that babies are not articles of clothing, and yet this term has become widely accepted. This topic is part of an intense discussion on my blog right now. (janetlansbury.com.) The post is: "Babywearing (I'd Rather Go Naked Than Wear Baby)" Please weigh-in!

  21. Love the dress!! Soo adorable! I always like to bring a pear and gorgonzola salad, fruit salad, or mini little appetizers (like mini little sandwiches, veggies, or homemade pita chips and hummus!) Have a good time :)!

  22. Janet, I will try to check out your site when I get the chance, but I think everyone using the term babywearing knows it's a gentle practice and something we do by holding our children close to us via a sling or baby carrier.
    It's a positive and loving practice, and it sounds like anyone that is going to have a problem with the term babywearing is clearly missing the point and just looking for things to be offended about. I don't wish to put my time and energy toward that nonsense.

  23. I love that dish you are taking. Enjoy your pot luck. Ivy looks like she has grown so much in that picture.

  24. Her dress is as adorable as she is. I wish they made adult dresses :).

  25. Could Ivy get any cuter? I mean really... ;)

  26. Steph,
    I don't criticize the practice of carrying a baby. I believe it is a loving, gentle way to keep the baby nearby. But I think the term 'babywearing' demeans babies, and although YOU understand what you are saying, you are helping to encourage a negative perception of infants in society by blindly accepting the word. Language is a powerful thing. I'm not asking you to waste your time, just to maybe give the word you are using a bit of thought. I realize that it is inconvenient for you, considering it is the name of your site. I most definitely do not look for things to be offended about!
    Thanks,janet

  27. SUCH a cute picture. I love how her outfit sort-of matches and sort-of doesn't.

    Potluck ideas: fruit salad, muffins, sliced watermelon, peanut butter cookies, or oatmeal fudge.
