Food help, please. :(

Postby philth » Mon Dec 19, 2011 3:17 pm UTC

I've got to go to a work christmas party tomorrow, which is a potluck.

I delayed emailing back, so I'm now expected to bring one of three entrees.

The other two entrees are Lasagna and Pulled Pork.

What is there that I can buy that would fit in with this?

I can make it to, but it'd have to be pretty simple as my Apprentice/Journeyman cooking skills are a limiting factor.

Suggestions?

jam/chilli sauce meatballs. Only thing you need is a crockpot.

I do it with two pounds of meatballs, a bottle of Hienz chilli sauce and a can of jellied cranberry sauce. YMMV

I like it.

Grabbed some meatballs and sauce at M&M's on the way home. Now unbox that brand new slow cooker we got for christmas last year.

Thanks :)

You won't be disappointed. These are amazingly good for what they are. They always get eaten, almost as fast as deviled eggs.

In the US the term entree refers to your main course. Horse doovers we call appetizers or starters, and for some reason I don't understand, we have the salad before the entree. The reason for this is that eating entrees as lunch meals became pretty common in the mid 20th, and the habit of serving entrees on the same plate as a the main course, i.e. Surf & Turf.

If I win the lottery, which would be extra special since I don't play, I will invest the money into a restaurant that runs a modernized five-course dinner service. People will get their salad after their main and fucking like it.

From Wikipedia:
An entréeis a dish served before the main course, or between two principal courses of a meal.

The disappearance in the early 20th century of a large communal main course such as a roast as a standard part of the meal in the English-speaking world has led to the term being used to describe the main course itself in some areas.


Well I'll be damned. Good suggestions _and_ I learned something. I love xkcd.

Sheet, I forgot about that. I remember being pretty confuzzled by it.

I don't play the lottery either, but am looking forward to winning just the same.
