Food for thought

Imagination Prompt:

You have to bring some food to a party. What's it going to be?

I remember someone asking me, years ago, what my family ate since I didn't cook. Well, there's a big difference between not cooking and not liking to cook. Nobody starved, I can tell you that -- they may have had more chicken fingers and french fries than my more kitchen-friendly acquaintances but they had plenty to eat -- and I dare any of them to say they didn't!!

So, then, what do I do if I need to take something to a party? Well, first of all, I'm probably groaning about having to go to a party. But, once I've reconciled to going, I might just stop by the grocery store on the way, hoping something delicious is waiting for me in the deli/bakery but, if I were to actually make something, it would probably be either "Dirty Rice" (made with French Onion soup and Consomme) or a corn casserole -- or a casserole involving potatoes. Lots of potatoes (when I die, plant me in a field of potatoes. No, wait, I want to be cremated -- so roast me with them instead). If it were more of a finger food type party, then I probably would buy something -- like those little quiche-thingees or sausage something-or-others.

Jeez, I don't even know the names of food. But, hey, where would the cooks of the world be without people who appreciate eating?
