Well, Friday marked one of my first pot luck parties, believe it or not! I had been to one very nice one in Japan, but still, it had been a long time... so I made some guacamole (my "secret" is to mix it with sweet chilli sauce - beautiful!) and headed over. Some of the other food that I tried was delightful - hummus, some interesting things that I'd never had before, and a lot of vegetarian snacks!
So, why not visit somewhere nearby that you've never actually been to? Or try something new to eat or drink, perhaps?
