The Orange Potluck

It is October and time for the anual Orange potluck. This is a tradition that started quite a few years ago when I lived in Utah. My very creative roomates, Anne and Diana, thought it would be interesting to see what kind of food people would bring to a potluck in which everything had to be orange. It turned out to be lots of fun and we decided to have do it annually. So... this year Chloe and I greatly anticipated this day and the wonderful orange food that we would be able to eat.
When Sunday finally came I was lucky enough to have such a stiff neck that I couldn't even bend down to pick up the dog toys off the floor to prepare for all of our orange food making friends. Lacie took pity on me and my absolute pain and came over early to help get the house ready for our dinner guests. Then they began to arrive with all the yummy orange food.
I must say this year topped many of the orange potlucks that I have been able to be a part of. The food was delicious and very creative. For the first time no cheetos, and no one brought cooked carrots to my suprise. Of course we still had lots of cheese, sugar, and food coloring.

After we were quite stuffed, to stuffed to move, we decided to play some games while we let our food digest.

Mindy even came dressed for the occasion.

And that was the end of another succesful Orange Potluck. Next months potluck- foods we are most thankful for, so fellow potluckers start making your decisions now. This one may be difficult, then again maybe not of course there will be chocolate.

we did really have some great food! Lots of variety and it was all delicious. I can't wait for next months pot luck because I'm thankful for the Holiay season. At every event I take our favorite spinach salad. And don't go thinking that it's healthy. We make a HUGE dish for Thanksgiving dinner and it doesn't matter how many people are there it NEVER lasts the full day. :) yum. I can't wait!
