Probably 40 or so people. Some bring appetizers, some dessert. Staples like veg/dip and chips/dip provided, dinner provided.
I was thinking something savory. Things I know will be there already: shrimp, hot bean/cheese dip, cocktail weiners in sauce, pickles wrapped in beef/cream cheese, venison sausage, crab/cream cheese and crackers. These are things people bring every year.
So I wanna do something new. Something that will hopefully disappear along with the other stuff on the above list so I don’t have to take it back home!
Historically I’ve brought pita chips with artichoke/spinach dip from Whole Foods, which I can make a meal out of all by myself so don’t care if I have to pack it up and take it back home, but it’s disappointing when others don’t share my love for the stuff.
I will have zero time Christmas Day for any prep, and it will need to travel easily between carrying 2 blocks to the car and driving to two locations before being offered (about 4 hours after I leave my house). I will have all day Christmas Eve to make anything and refrigerate.
I would consider a dessert, but it would have to be spectacular so everyone will want some and I really don’t have to take that home!
