I got into a jam at the last Florida state by deciding to make meatballs. HaHaHa!!! 3 amp power, not able to use microwave, and as Terry said (above post) the oven has 2 speeds, off and blackened. So.... I bought frozen meatballs and a jar of mild salsa and simmered them for 25 minutes, then served crackers (different kinds) with them and they were good. I try to expirement (?spelling) with different things and have several kinds of ingredients on hand, even for rallys so if menus change, I can to.
As for pot lucks, anything goes, as long as it has been cooked. No raw fish, etc., for me. Most of the ones we have been to, the food has been really good, and I like getting ideas from other cooks, and if asked I'll share mine.

I am wondering how much Food Safety is a conscious consideration? Temperature controls, time in serve, dish cleaning practice, and such things are big deals for catering and commercial establishments but I wonder just how much thought they get in the "let's share a meal" crowd.

Is there a had washing facility at the pot luck? Anyone use ice chests or similar for cold or hot keeping?

As for religious practices, it seems only appropriate to show tolerance and respect for others when it does not intrude. I do not know why some would want to ridicule, comment, stare, or show other disrespect.

For me, one of the most important things on the menu is the opportunity to share a meal with friends.

I bring wipes, the antibacterial ones so we do our hands before picnics with that. I use germ-x if I am cooking outdoors, soapy water indoors. I think we all use a good amount of care cooking for friends and family. I can honestly say that, I've never gotten sick because of a potluck, I have gotten sick after eating at restaurants though. Good tips on that website for food safety!

Sharing a meal is fun, hospitality is a big deal in my family, its an honor to have guests and to share food with them.

Just a little clarification on my last post, my point was not that prayer is anything to be sneered at but that if we remove Jehovah and Jesus Christ from the prayers to encompass all various religions and non-religions and pray to unknown gods in a "generic" (existing word choice) way as Paul viewed the alters of unknown gods, just whom are we praying to? There is but one Almighty in my religion. So if we embrace all beliefs we have embraced none, is my thinking and watered down the tribute to be meaningless when it should be sacred. And this is why I think social functions should be separate. It's almost Christmas and you know how that goes with having to remove nativity scenes and religion. I just thought we already have our hands full trying to unite on less volatile grounds already.

Food safety is my biggest concern with potlucks. Although I have not been sick after a potluck I do think about how the dish was prepared and held until serving.

While I don't know of anyone who uses the three sink/wash basin method (maybe I'm the only one), I trust most people do a good enough job washing their dishes and preparing their food. I think you can look at the food and judge wheather it was properly prepared and decide wheather to eat it or not.

There are a lot of variables in life and I don't think you can go through life afraid of them. I think pot-lucks are a lot safer than driving to work and I do that every day.

My choice is fresh fish when you're near a place you can get it. If I camp in coastal areas, I will try to find a local vendor by asking fishing boat capitans abput their catch. In FL they are often glad to sell some of their fresh catch. I also prefer fresh trout. The fly waters in the south are great. Don't keep more than you will eat! Please release the "trophy trout" for someone else to catch, and never exceed the limit. There are plenty fish for everyone.

On Mexican Food:

My favorite Mexican Cookbooks are

Diana Kennedy The Cuisines of Mexico.
It is very well written and simple to follow. She is an American that has spent most of her life in Mexico and has written several cookbooks. The fun part is you learn a lot about the history behind Mexican cooking. Her bean and Mexican rice recipe is perfect. Follow it to a T and your friends will wonder how you learned to cook.
Another great resource is author Rick Bayliss he has written several must have Mexican cookbooks. This is a great starting point.
Happy eating and travels,
Hey, wanted to thank you for the tip, Picked up Diana Kennedy The Cuisines of Mexico (Amazon.com) Great stuff in there!!!

Does this sound like we're heading to a Mexican, Tex/Mex or BBQ theme for the next pot luck? I thought the Italian theme at R1 was great.
