My office decided to have a Valentine’s Day potluck with the theme: food we love. I made sis guess our theme for Valentine’s Day and she guessed: food that bad for your heart. Also, a fun theme…for another time.
I love breakfast so I made Ebelskiver. These stuffed pancakes are fantastic and highly portable. Potlucks are so much pressure because reheating with only a microwave and toaster oven doesn’t do everything justice. Also, since I travel to work on public transit my choices can also be limited.
These stuffed pancakes became fast favorites of ours after I gave the pan to Mr. J for his birthday. I did 2 fillings: raspberries and chocolate chips. Some other favorite fillings are: jelly, sausage, brown sugar, coconut, and peanut butter.
Williams Sonoma sells fancy turners but after a $40 pan I decided we would get creative. I can whole heartedly recommend cheap bamboo skewers.
Some other loved items at our potlucks include:
Somebody loves: Thai Noodles in Peanut Sauce with Asparagus and Cucumbers
Somebody loves: Matzo Ball Soup
Somebody loves: Kale Salad with Mango & Sunflower Seeds
Somebody loves: Queso Dip
Somebody loves: Care Packages (you can’t see the neutella brownie inside and I ate it before taking a photo)
Some others love salad and pasta salad.
It was such a fun theme. Some of our past themes have been: picnic food; dip day; and back to school lunch food. I can’t wait for our next potluck!
