Starting off Sunday fluff

We've gone to church, watching Meet The Press, took ground beef out of my freezer for meatballs, jotting notes down for the week then planning for the week ahead, clip coupons, and planning to watch the Cleveland Browns/Bengals game later, Ultimate rivals!  Lol! 

How is your Sunday going?

Can't speak for Bord, of course, but when I host something I enjoy doing the whole thing. I can eat other people's food when I'm at their houses.

"Have we not had this same conversation a gazillion times, Morty? Do you not remember the answers from last time around? Nope, don't remember." So much for that "excellent" memory of yours!

To answer the question then, unless I am co-hosting the party with someone else, no one brings any dishes. When I invite someone to my home, they are the guests, and I am the host. The invitation does not carry the expectation that the guest will contribute to the meal.

Gotcha, thanks. Not even dessert or a bottle of wine? They bring NOTHING??

It is not uncommon for guests to bring a small hostess gift; but it is not necessary. A hostess gift might be a bottle of wine, some fresh produce from the guest's garden, a bouquet of flowers, even some pretty soaps or something like that. If it is dessert, it might be cookies or something for the hostess's family to enjoy another time, not part of the meal being served that evening; unless of course the hostess has invited everyone to a potluck.

Because it's insulting to offer to bring anything.

No gold stars, I'm really not that impressed.

I guess if you only have a few people then it is not too bad.
