Hi everyone! I am new to the boards. I need a quick and easy bring along dish for our Sunday School pot luck lunch on sunday. The only problem is I will be gone from about 1030 am - Very late sat night, with only a few hours in between time at home. Any ideas, would be very welcome!!

Thanks Alot

Hi Bumblebee. Just a couple of quick questions before I start sifting through recipes. Is there a specific course that you have to bring or that you would prefer to bring (appetizer, or do want to take a dessert, etc)? Do you have a crockpot? Meat or veggie? Anything you want to avoid?

Welcome to the board! Here's a couple ideas for you...


1 lb. spaghetti

SAUCE 3 tbsp. sesame oil

3 tbsp. soy sauce

1 tbsp. balsamic vinegar

2 tbsp. sugar

2 tbsp. kosher salt

1 tsp. chili oil (optional)

4 tbsp. scallions, chopped

Cook spaghetti according to package directions. Drain and pour into a large bowl. In a small bowl, mix sauce ingredients. Pour over cooked spaghetti, toss and serve.


TAKES HOW LONG TO MAKE: About 5 minutes to prepare

If you like spicy food, use more chili oil.



16 oz. macaroni or shells, cooked al dente

1 1/2 cup chopped celery

2/3 cup chopped onion

2/3 cup chopped dill pickles

2 cup chopped tomatoes

1 cup Parmesan cheese

2 teaspoon prepared mustard

Salt and pepper to taste

1 1/20 cup mayonnaise

Combine all ingredients, preferably while pasta is still warm, except the mayonnaise; toss lightly. Add the mayonnaise and mix well. Refrigerate for several hours or overnight. Before serving, bring to room temperature and add additional mayonnaise or cheese if desired.

If refrigerating overnight, reserve tomatoes until the next day. Since the dill pickles have salt, taste carefully before salting the salad. I like to add a little of the pickle juice and, when it's in season, some fresh dill.

You will probably want to double or triple this recipe for your pot-luck.


BBQ Bean Salad

Quick & easy picnic salad - very colorful on your plate. The dressing is very tasty, not real BBQ'y.

1 (3 lb) can pinto beans, drained & rinsed

1 (15 oz) can whole kernel corn, drained

1 sweet red pepper, chopped

1 sweet green peppers, chopped

1 medium onion, chopped

1/4 cup cider vinegar

1/4 cup ketchup

1/4 cup olive oil

1/4 cup packed brown sugar

1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

2 teaspoons chili powder

3/4 teaspoon ground cumin

1 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce

1 clove garlic, crushed

2 cups crushed tortilla chips (your choice)

1. Place beans, corn, peppers& onion in a large salad bowl.

2. In a saucepan, combine remaining ingredients (except chips)& bring to a boil.

3. Reduce heat, cover& simmer for 10 minutes.

4. Cool slightly and pour over bean mixture.

5. Toss to coat.

6. Sprinkle crushed chips on top of beans (garnish with jalapeno slices, if desired).

7. Serve at room temperature.


Hope those help some!
