I think potluck is a good idea for any party that needs to cater for a big crowd, especially when the host does not want do too much cooking. Yesterday, my son, Nick attended a Christmas party at his boss’ home. It was a potluck party so I prepared a few things for his contribution. I made salsa, grilled vegetables, beef burgundy and coconut speculas. It was my first time making the beef burgundy and fortunately it turned out quite delicious. So the next time I cook this again, I will share the recipe with you all.
I made some Belgium speculas but somehow when the first tray of cookies were done and I tried one, I did not like it because it was too sweet. In order to cut down the sweetness, I added dessicated coconut to the next batch of dough and the cookies tasted much better. I do not know if they is such thing as coconut speculas, if not, then let the name be borned yesterday. LOL!
I was eager to know if his colleagues enjoyed the food I prepared. It was around 10pm that I received a thank you sms from Nick to say they did. I can’t tell you how happy I was. I guess the best reward for any cook is to know that people enjoyed what they cooked. Do you agree with me?
