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!
