That said, does anyone in Chicago want to have a potluck? Each guest bringing a dish/drink/dessert, and being ready to talk about it. Whether it's a story like the one about the family pot roast recipe (calling for a certain sized hunk of meat, only to instruct the cook to cut off the last 2 inches for some reason shrouded in mystery until grandma explained "oh! well, otherwise it wouldn't fit in the pot we had!"), or a story that starts out as "Well, I'm a terrible cook, so I made...", let's get together and eat some casseroles and more, anything really, and (re)connect with food and others. Vegetarians and carnivores alike are all welcome.
Sound interesting? Email me if so at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we'll get something together.
