Kinda Wishing We Were as Bold as the Bloggess


We attended the International Potluck Dinner at Q-ster's school tonight, and it is indeed an international school. There was a large table for dishes from China, and a matching table for India. Another table was labeled for Japan and Korea. The rest of the world was gathered on the last table, with a section for America (where I saw macaroni and cheese) and Italy (a couple of pizzas).

I recalled that Jenny, the Bloggess, had brought crackers to her daughter's kindergarten multi-cultural day, and as one of the few Caucasian parents, SwingDaddy said he was totally doing the same for our next dinner. Thanks, Jenny.

P.S. I was looking for the table labeled "Nation of Trader Joe's." My potluck secret is bringing their meatballs. They are really popular with the kids because they're easy to serve and eat, plus they don't completely look store-bought.

I kind of love that you included that wikipedia link.

My jealousy of those with access to Trader Joe's knows no bounds. See? It IS a foreign country to me...

Meatballs are easy to serve and adjust quantities, kind of like cupcakes.

I would totally join the Nation of Trader Joe's. It is to my eternal sadness that they have no stores in Canada. Oh, woe is me!

I so love you.
