It’s been a fine potluck, don’t you agree?

Compliments and recipes exchanged, 
some of the dishes about licked clean, 
enough for everybody to take a plate home.

I didn’t bring what I’d call my best:
some were clean-out-the-freezer concoctions, 
others simmered a long while on low
and still tasted undercooked, 
and a few I threw together, last minute. 
I used my late mother-in-law’s method on my favorites–
sipping a little somethin’ while stirring. 

Hard to push yourself away, isn’t it? 
Lordy though, it’s late,
and    I     am     stuffed!
