Let me preface this by saying that I am NOT a good cook. We are having Thanksgiving dinner at the office on Tuesday. I'm excited--last year was the first year and it was wonderful. My problem is what do I take for my dish?? It has to be easy. Also, I live 30 minutes from the office, so it has to be something that doesn't need to be hot/warm.

When we did that last year, I made dessert because it doesn't have to be kept warm. But you could also assemble something in the crockpot, transport it and then let it cook on high in the morning (or keep it on the warm setting).

We always used to ask my sister to bring soda and paper plates.

This isn't a gooey cookie. The cookies should have a firm cake-like consistency. It usually takes mine about 12-13 minutes to bake.
Peanut Butter Cup Chocolate Lush is an easy recipe that is fabulous!
I also think a fresh fruit salad is a nice addition at a gathering.

These are some wonderful looking recipes. We do have a refridgerator, so cold is not a problem.

I always bring my dish in a crock pot and set it on low.
I have a friend who always brings canned corn for her dish. She doesn't have 'time' to cook anything and that is her thing.. lol.
Some that don't want to do much bring the salad, rolls, or something similar...
Potlucks are always good though!!

Here's one that is super easy, and delicious, my daughter doesn't like celery, so we don't add that, best of all you can make it the night before:
SEVEN LAYER PEA SALAD
3 c. shredded lettuce
1 c. chopped celery
1/2 c. chopped onion
1 (10 oz.) bag frozen peas (not in butter sauce)
1 1/2 c. cheddar cheese, shredded
1/2 c. bacon bits
1 c. mayonnaise
Layer ingredients in order in bowl. Cover salad with mayonnaise like you are frosting a cake (about 1 inch thick). Chill overnight. Toss next day just before serving.

I'm taking Potato Salad Bites to mine. Except I cheat and buy the potato salad to fill them with.

1 can corn
1 can creamed corn
1/2 cup softened butter
1 box Jiffy Corn Bread mix
z sour cream
Mix together and bake (350 I think). If you have a dish that keeps things warm, that might work.

Appetizers? I'm thinking little mini caprese salads on a toothpick-take a cherry tomato, put a small cube of mozzarella and wrap in a basil leaf. Super yummy.

Cute idea! But if you are buying the potato salad what are you doing with the potato that you are scooping out to make the shells?

What about making a turkey and noodle dish that you can keep in a crockpot to warm? Potlucks are always heavy on desserts and sides, and there never seem to be enough main dishes.

Steam some baby carrots. Melt a tiny (maybe a tablespoon, 2 if you use a big bag of carrots) bit of butter and mix with some brown sugar. Stir in with baby carrots. Sprinkle some pumpkin pie spice on and mix some more. Put in crockpot on lowest setting to keep warm.

How about mini sandwiches. You could get some of those delicious Hawaiian sweet rolls and some deli turkey. Maybe a small jar of mayo and mustard. Then people can make thier own sandwich. Easy and quick. Just a trip to the store.
I agree about desserts at potlucks. There always seems to be lots of them and not enough main dishes.
