Potluck ‘N’ seemed to be filled with new challenges and unexpected surprises.

Challenge 1:  8 people = 8 pieces of naan, but there were 2 unexpected guests.  To be polite most people had 1/2 a piece of naan, so there was actually one piece left over.

Challenge 2:  Seating.  Ten people seems to be the maximum occupancy for the table.  With a little help from fold out chairs we managed fine.

Unexpected surprise 1:  Three new faces at the table.  It’s always good to have new people share in the experience.

Unexpected surprise 2:  Three salads made an appearance on the buffet.  Where the dinner is usually lacking in light salads, tonight the leafy greens were abundant.  We had napa cabbage salad, noodle (tortellini) on spinach, and navel orange and blue cheese salad.

So this is what a plate of ‘N’ foods look like.  We had the salads and naan, New Zealand pasta made with cauliflower and a red cream sauce and nachos.  Also, you’ll notice that Graeme made “Nothing” tonight, so the empty spaces represent Graeme’s contribution.

One newcomer brought Nestle Tollhouse cookie pie, but I forgot to take a picture. Just imagine a pie shell with gooey chocolate chip cookies in the center.

And nobody made any claims to next week’s “O”s, so I think that a vegetarian French onion soup may be in store, or maybe Onion tea sandwiches. We’ll see.
