Just finished voting and on my way home I was thinking about the swing states… no, not their political impact, but about the famous food from those places.
GP is right… food is always top-of-mind.
Friends are coming over to the house tonight for a potluck dinner to watch the election returns, so I thought, why not have each person bring something (easy) representing one of the swing states?
For appetizers, someone is bringing an assortment of Wisconsin cheese. North Carolina is represented by Sweet Potato Tater Tots (because you can’t really ask a guest to do the barbecue thing, especially last minute).
One friend wanted to bring Loose Meat Sandwiches to represent Iowa, but we had enough entrees so she opted for corn on the cob (we did need a veg in there somewhere).
We’ve got dessert covered: A Florida Key Lime Pie, New Hampshire Pumpkin Bread and Shoofly Pie from Pennsylvania (which I’m very excited about because I’ve never had it before).
That leaves Nevada. We really couldn’t come up with anything for Nevada (martinis?)… so in honor of the ubiquitous buffets available in casinos across the state, we’re going to serve BUFFET STYLE and honor Nevada in that way.
Looks like we’ve got plenty of food, which is a good thing… because it could be a loooong night!
