We normally have a big potluck with all our friends, but this year we find ourselves all in our own - which means for the first time in years we get to try something more unusual than green bean casserole as our side. Turkey, stuffing, the ubiquitous sliceable cranberry sauce and desserts are all taken care of - now I'd like a vegetable or two. We'd prefer something more colonial or historic just because we have kids and food lessons are always the most fun, but really I want something so fantastic that I can feel justified in forcing it into the rotation next year when the potluck returns.
DH has suggested Sweet Potato Spoon Bread and English Cheese Pie as options, but I need veggies in my life! A kale gratin of some kind might be nice, but it doesn't feel special or unusual...Ideas?
