Harvest Potluck

Today we had a enjoyable, if rather hectic Harvest Potluck at school with the little people.  It was kind of like a Thanksgiving feast, combined with a Harvest meal because this was letter H week, along with the bonus of asking everyone to bring a food that started with the first letter of their first name.

As a result, we had all kinds of food.  A veritable plethora, in fact. Out of the 22 children present today, we had 19 bring something.  And not just little somethings, either.  We had vanilla ice cream cones.  We had cupcakes.  We had jello.  We even had homemade spring rolls.  (The spring rolls threw me off a little bit, because the child who brought them has a name starting with "V".  However, then I figured that they were probably vegetable spring rolls, or perhaps Vietnamese spring rolls, since this child's family is indeed from there.)

Actually, we were also confused by the child with an "M" name who brought brownies, but eventually my teacher's aide said, "Mmmmmmm!  Brownies!".  At that's how I'll write it in our "Class Potluck" book on her page. 

Fortunately, we actually even had something in our food cabinet that worked for the two that didn't bring anything.  We had peanut butter crackers for a P, and those crunchy chow mein noodles for an N.

So, all in all we had the following fun foods:

A: Applesauce
B: Bread
C: Cupcakes and Cinnamon Rolls
D: Doritos
J: Jelly beans, jello, juice, and two types of juice fruit snacks
M: Mangos, chocolate Money, Mini Marshmallow Muffins, and Mmmm Brownies
N: (chow mein) Noodles
P: Peanut Butter Crackers
R: Raisins
S: Strawberry strudel
T: Tootsie pops, turkey slices
V: Vanilla Ice Cream and Vietnamese Vegetable Spring Rolls

Quite a festive way to head into the Thanksgiving Break.

My sympathies to the mom who re-read her note about bringing something to school for the potluck. She was clearing off the counter from the disaster of the cooking fiasco when she had to run to the store in the middle of it to buy eggs while making travel plans for Thanksgiving and returning phone calls about the soccer tournament when she noticed that the potluck dish was supposed to start with the first letter of the child's name. Her face turned red, she smacked her forehead, she threw away the note, and she will be eternally grateful for you making it wonderful and right in the class potluck book. Obviously, I have been there...

Wish I could see the book. Sounds like the kids will love it! How smart of your teacher's aide to make it right!
