Where are the Midwest housewives when you need them?
Based on my understanding, when going to a potluck, everyone brings a dish to share. However, many-a-time couples or families bring one collective dish. Is that acceptable?
I ask with the caveat that I’ve never been to a potluck that had a shortage of food. But is it fair to those who come solo with a dish for those that come with sig other/kids in tow to only bring one dish as well? At first blush, I say no.
Shouldn’t the people who come in pairs be responsible for bringing one dish that is twice the size – or two small dishes?
I’m not here spouting judgement or advice because I don’t know the answer. It just seems fair to me that you should bring one dish per person – not group – when potlucking.
What are your thoughts? Please discuss.
Disclaimer: this has ZERO to do with any one who came to my house yesterday. If anything, people brought three and four items per person … the amount of food was insane, awesome and delicious.
