Several years ago when Chris and I worked at the Delphian School, we hosted Tuesday night dinners with the other you staff. There was a group of us that would have dinner each Tuesday and trade off cooking. It was a lot of fun. But then we moved farther away and some of the other people moved to New Hampshire and it just fell apart.
But a few months back Chris had the idea to start a similar thing up again, but instead of just trading off the cooking, it would be potluck style with a theme (like the show Iron Chef on the Food Network). So she emailed around and got a bunch of people intested.
We’ve had two of these now (one of which doubled as my birthday party), and they are a blast. People come with all sorts of food and everyone gets together at one of our places and eats and talks and has a good time. And since a lot of us are a bit older and have little children, even they get to come and share in the fun.
I’m looking forward to the next one. I think the theme is apples and it should be good!
