    We are having a family get-together memorial day and I would like to take something besides a sliced ham. I have been taking ham for the last few years. We just had ham for Easter and I would like something different. Does anyone have a favorite dish for a potluck dinner. Thank you so much for any ideas or recipes.

    The skillet chili Mac that is listed in this blog is very good.

    http://www.skiptomylou.org/recipes-2/

    And I ran across a very good beef recipe out of a cookbook at the library that is very easy & very good!

    Thin small steaks pounded to almost paper thin
    1 can of black olives
    1 tin of anchovies...I know I know...but bare with me
    1-2 TBSP capers.
    Chopped Garlic to taste
    Black Pepper to taste

    You really don't need salt as the anchovies will take care of that.

    Make a paste out of everything with your food processor and smear ~ thats a technical cooking term ~ right? =) on the steaks. cook them in a skillet or your favorite pan on the stove top. I always use half EVOO & butter. These are ridiculously delicious. And you can use cheaper cuts of meat because you start out with them thin.

    do you like ribs? I make some that the meat just falls apart and is very yummy!!! I put them in a pan (make sure they do not cover each other)..Put some foil over them and slow bake them at 250 degrees for about 5 to 6 hours..During the last hour, take the foil off put your favorite bbq sauce and let them finish cooking...

    Do you have a smoker? We just smoked a turkey breast and it was awesome! Injected the breast with lemon juice, evoo and lemon pepper seasoning. We used crabapple wood and in the water pan, I put apple & orange juice with sliced up oranges and lemons, a bay leaf and some ground cloves, and a little wine :wink: and let it go.

    You could do, chickens, a whole turkey, ribs, etc.

    Good eats!!!

    Thanks everyone,for the recipes. It sounds like you are good cooks. I have ribs and turkey breast in the freezer and the steak recipe sounds very interesting. Did you use round steak or sirloin or something else.

    The breast took about 5 hrs. But I always use a wireless meat thermometer. Just stick it in, turn on and go about my business.

    If you want a salad I have great recipe. It has romaine, sunflower seeds, mozz cheese, apples, and a sort of poppy seed dressing. Really easy to make. Let me know.

    swedish meatballs, ii love them, way back in the old days (when i was a kid, lol) someone always brought a pot of "picnic burgers" which were hamburgers made in the kitchen in a gravy, then carried to the picnic. someone always brought lemon squares, too. I like cukes too. wash then slice them fairly thin, skin on, soak for an hr in very cold salted (brined water -it draws out what makes them limp), rinse well. then mix water and cider vinegar to just cover cukes amt cut up, sugar to taste (just a LITTLE sweet) and a bunch (I mean, a nice handful)of fresh dill (I grow it in a kitchen garden) chop fine, stir in. Very refreshing if you keep the bowl in a little ice. sharet

    I would suggest pulled pork. Take a large pork roast and rub it with Applewood seasoning rub. Put it in your crock pot on highto cook fasted or low if you have several hours. Do not add anything else---not even liquids. If on high in about 6-7 hours the pork will be shred easily. Have favorite BBQ ready on the side and some buns for those who like it on a bun. Honestly, this simple recipe will be a hit for you.

    I am going to try this. It sounds so easy and good. I have never used applewood seasoning but I will be on the lookout for it. Is there a brand name, like McCormicks or Durkee?

    I don't have a smoker but I will put your recipe in my files. I could try your seasonings on a turkey breast on a covered grill. Thank you.

    Do you have a roaster? I buy the big bags of honey bbq wings at Sams, dump them in and add more bbq sauce. Cover and turn roaster on low to heat them thru. Served these at all my kids graduation parties. big hit.
