I know I've sent e-mails and all that, but I wanted to say thanks everyone for coming out yesterday! I can't wait to have another one :-)
My dish was the Goddess Pasta Salad from Yellow Rose Recipes. I think it turned out really well (the last time I made it I thought it'd be cool to put 6 cloves of garlic in it. not cool whatsoever). My favorite dish though was the macncheese that my friend Lori from Pleasantly Plump Vegan brought. So delish. Laurie from The PPK brought 4 dozen cupcakes: Pink Lemonade, Root Beer, Chocolate (super super chocolate) and Chick-O-Stick!!
Idalys from Dulce Vegan brought the most awesome Pineapple Upside Down cake EVER. I think everyone was in agreement, as evidenced by the photo above.
I think we had about 25 folks out and that was the perfect amount to fit at the picnic tables! The weather was perfect too, not too hot with a nice breeze. I was so worried that it was going to rain or that the pavilion would be taken by someone else; but everything worked out in my favor for the day! Success!
I was up until 2am with a sugar rush from all the desserts I ate!! That was pretty fun and it was totally worth it. Next time around I want to see if people would be interested in bringing copies of the recipe for the dish they bring. There were so many yummy things there, like the super tasty broccoli cauliflower salad that Leigh brought (along with the strawberry no-bake pie). I'm so glad she posted the recipe on her blog!
Here are some cute photos of the lovely people who attended the potluck followed up by the dishes they brought. We had tempeh w/ a miso-tahini dipping sauce, citrus rice, a mango rice dish, assortments of pasta dishes, potato salad, hummus (saba hummus, killer!) & chips, 7-layer dip, chickpea salad, sliced fresh fruit and so much more!! I look forward to more potlucks and to hanging out with all of these awesome Atlanta vegans!
