Our Winter Pot Luck will be January 31st, 2015, at 11:30 am at Lutheran Church of Hope, 925 Jordan Creek Parkway.  If you haven’t marked your calendars you’d better do it now!  Our theme is Comfort Foods, so be thinking about what you would like to bring for your item!  Maybe you have a favorite crock pot dish, favorite casserole or favorite dessert.  We’ll love them all!  It’s so cold right now, and all I can think of is what I can eat that would give me some comfort!  This is a great way to break up the winter doldrums and have a little fun!  I’m sure the weather will be perfect for us that day!

Just so you know, we will have a potato bar with all the trimmings too! 

There will be gift baskets to give away (I’m still waiting to win one!).

I’m sure you all know that it is extremely important that you bring dishes that are completely gluten free!  Make sure you read the ingredient labels of the products used in your recipe, and if you are unsure if the product is GF, contact the manufacturer.  We want to maintain a standard of safety at our pot lucks for all our gluten free friends.

All your dishes should have your recipe placed by your dish on the table, and your name should be on the recipe.  It is important for those with multiple allergies to know what ingredients are in the dish (and the name brands used in the recipe).  I have had questions from people wanting more information about a few recipes in the past, but no name was on it for me to contact.  We ask for a recipe to be placed in the recipe basket at the registration table as well.

Please try to email your recipes to me prior to the pot luck so I can get started on putting them in the newsletter.  Otherwise they need to be in to me no later than February 6.  If I could please ask that your recipes be sent in a WORD doc so they can be copied easier.  Scanned recipes are very difficult to transfer to the newsletter and I usually end up having to retype them along with all the others that are not emailed.

We had our tailgate themed pot luck on September 20th, with some really good dishes, including BBQ ribs!!!  The walking tacos were a big hit, and the desserts are always on the top of MY list!!!


JUNE POT LUCK MEETING 2014 – We had a great turnout for our summer pot luck! And the Italian theme worked really well. Amazing how many things you can do with GF pasta! The sides and desserts were fantastic! Thanks to all who attended and brought such great items for us to taste! And thanks to all who emailed your recipes to me for the newsletter before and after the pot luck! I really appreciated that, since it takes me lots of hours to retype all those that were not sent, along with all the ones that don’t have email, so saving me time is much appreciated!

February 2014 Newsletter and Recipes

Thank you all for coming out to our “Brunch” themed pot luck on February 1st. It wasn’t supposed to be that cold! But we are a tough breed, aren’t we!? We had some really incredible casseroles and coffee cakes and desserts, and lots of things in between. The pancakes were fantastic that were made by Lucy, Jan and Kay! We had several of our members who offered to come and help us out for the pot luck, and I want to thank them…Kathy and Ken Roth, Nancy Young and Micca Guyler, and Barbara Moore. Thanks to Angie for organizing the sample tables, Christie for registration, Lisa, Ella and friends for the Children’s Program, and Steve and Jeff for all their help. And we can always count on Colleen Meyer for donating the Friedrich’s Coffee and Kathy Titus for planning the Children’s program and making the copies of the newsletter for mailing to those without email. What a wonderful team we have!
