I do my best to avoid them, with the excuse that 'it could have MSG' .

Doesn't work very well with desserts though.

I always take a fruit tray with lots of pineapple. I love pineapple, but I think I have gotten too many people enjoying pineapple now.

That doesn't work so well, when your work place is like mine, out of 12 people all of the continents are represented save Antarctica. You just gotta try everything..... I think that's the key to potlucks, you give yourself a spoonful of each item, nothing is more then 2 or 3 bites, so if you don't like something, you can probably choke it down, without offending the maker. Then again, your not going to stuff yourself with something you do like. Our work potluck one of the ladies from the Philippines, made this banana dish, oh man was that nice. Bananas and sugar rolled in a pastry, since my trick is to have a little of everything, I had one, but only one. You can excuse yourself from eating more, by saying you want to leave some for others.

It is also great at avoiding friends. Now, if there is some lefse to wrap it in, I'll skip the lutefisk and cover the lufse in butter and sugar. Hey, what isn't better with butter and sugar.

Hey now, I LOVE a good haggis!
I work at a school where most of the staff are African-American women who love to eat and cook. When we have a feed, we have a FEED!!!!!! I was stuffed yesterday, then again today with leftovers. I really do try to take small portions, but it ends up being small portions of a LOT of dishes.

Can anyone see posts 1-4?

Thread is fixed now on my end.

Macadamia bread is indeed #4, and the thread starts out with post #1.

That was really bugging me.

Lutefisk is no joke Tom. Norsemen do not appreciate having their foodstuffs denigrated on internet forums!



Actually, I've never even had Lutefisk. I do like lefse though.

Yah! Lutefisk is no joke. I think maybe they asked you to LEAVE Lake Pepin, and I can understand why. You betcha. And V1k1ng1001, at least you're from North Dakota, so you can be slightly less embarrassed for never trying it. But still... get thee to some Lutefisk!

I suppose now you'll be making fun of my Hardanger Fiddle (Norwegian):

I read recently that the last shop offering lutefisk in Ballard has closed its doors. There were not enough Scandinavians left in Ballard to sustain sales .
