everything worked out fine, except for the part where the host forgot to tell me the food was going to have a Russian theme

 

i need a healthy dish for a pot luck, hot or cold, no kale.

Hummis' / hummi (?) could be a fall back but i usually do somethng more interesting.

thanks

 

Chili - the host/ess makes this for haloween, too close

antipasta - we would frown at a bunch of store pickled veggies since they are use to my home made that take 2 weeks to make

 

party is this weekend.

 

i'm not ready for faux cheese, whole wheat , veggie lasagna yet- I'd rather just not eat.

 

i guess it's an aray of hummi and w/w pita, but please keep the sugestions coming.

 

garlic; spicy + black bean.

get those tiny sweet peppers and stuff them with something...super cute and there's never enough veggies at parties especially as it gets colder out.

grape leaves and coriander, who would have guessed I needed to check western beef, burno's a&s, pathmark, pastosa, key food, the health food store before I found them at Met ?

 

3:00 pm update , garlic, spicy, black bean hummus +  tabouleh packed and ready to go

beer is in the cooler, grape leaves in the pot.

Perhaps but I feel like a lot of recipes use the word coriander to mean cilantro

from what i've been reading that has been happening, but all the herb substituion sites i read cautioned against it.

 

I like corriande but I can't stand cilantro - then again I love arugula so maybe that's part of it.

 

If you like the swap, I say go for it - what the hell do i know anyway :).
