Baptists love to eat. On the first Sunday of the month, there is always a potluck. We also eat together every Wednesday night.
Tonight I am bringing:
Smores on a Stick: I don't have the exact reference for this, but it did come from Tina's blog, "Carrots and Cake."
I will add the cute little sticks to them when I get to the church. I love simple things that look like they take a long time and are very complicated.
I needed to bring something else, but didn't want to do any major cooking. I didn't want to use the stove at all. I found this recipe in an old copy of Taste of Home magazine I had at the house.
I love how colorful this recipe is! I wish I had a different color bowl other than green, but it was the largest bowl I had. I used colby cheese, strawberries, almonds, and broccoli. For the dressing it was a cup of mayo, two tablespoons of sugar, and one teaspoon of apple cider vinegar.
On Sunday, I made Pasta Salad on a Stick (which I've made before), and Red, White, and Blue Strawberries. The strawberries were all over the blogosphere, I'm using a stock photo from the internet to show them.
I had a massive fail with the almond bark on these. The almond bark was not melting properly. I always melt my almond bark in the microwave. It looked like oatmeal. I tried butter to help with the texture. FAIL. It had to be bad almond bark. I was worried that the local grocery store would not have what I needed (we live in a very remote area), but I have really been pleased with what the grocery store has to offer. They had almond bark, and the rest of making it was easy!
