We occasionally have themed office potlucks, some of which are contests including various categories and actual prizes other than just bragging rights. We've done cookies, salads, pies, muffins, stuffed items, chili, jam/preserves, family traditions, crisp/crumbles, farmer's market, and a bunch of colored themes - all green foods or all yellow/red/whatever.
I always seem to need to come up with these themes, and I'm feeling a little stumped on the next one. Wanna help?
It's going to be mid-December. The item can't need to be heated up, (we blew all the fuses in the conference room with electric hot-plates when we did the chili-off; they're fixed, but that means we're limited to one microwave and one toaster oven). It should be something one can make the night before. And preferably be something that can be broken into judgeable categories.
