1. What's for dinner?

2. When invited to BBQ's in the summer, what signature dish do you usually bring?

3. Where did your parents meet?

Why can't you see it if one wants to be healthy in general?

I can but you are missing the point that there are times when you don't have to be 100% and can just enjoy yourself and try new things, maybe some that are not 100% healthy. 

I live to eat, not just eat to live.

Well ime having had a ton of pool/yard parties over the years that there isn't a whole lot of space in the hosts refigerator at parties and if this was a bbq, I would assume it would be an outside type party unless they were bbqing indoors.  Shrug, just as I would be worried about the safe storage of a mayo based potato salad in the summer months I would be worried about the safe storage of a pie.

Oh ok. I guess if that is the type of places you go to BBQ's. I have always put my things in the fridge as well as others have too if needed. Many people bring an appetizer which goes right out or a dessert that might not have to be put in the fridge.

You don't eat coolwhip?  It was in every recipe of twinkle pie that I saw....

No, I think you are missing the point that many of us are trying to make, we all do that too, eating twinkle pie doesn't have the corner on living a little or enjoying oneself, quite the opposite in my opinion.  

Life is too short to eat bad food or drink bad wine, and I'm sorry but imo twinkle pie falls under eating bad food.  Now...if you made a dark chocolate granache cake?  I'm agreeing with you 100%, but twinkle pie...ya, no nothing about that equals to me enjoying myself.  I get that you like it, great....have no problems with that, eat it all you want!  You can even have my share.

Probably, potlucks are not really the norm in my social circle, outside of church socials and tailgates.  Which of course would bring the refrigeration problem back into play.

And all of us involved in this subthread had stated specific examples of not being "100%".   You're just arguing because you cant' believe none of us want to try your hostess monstrosity.
