Life lesson

Today I was invited to a last-minute pitch-in, and was asked to bring a dish. This is a perfect example of why preparedness is so important. There were two ways I could have reacted to this situation: I could panic and worry about it, or I could be calm, because I was prepared for such a thing. Pitch-ins are popular where I live, we have them regularly, and often have to feed and entertain 70 or more people.
Having one or a few go-to dishes and games/activities at the ready definitely pays off. I brought a cheese and cracker hors d'oeuvre. It went over spectacularly, and I had no leftovers to bring home. What I count as a successful day.
