This month’s Eat Well, Spend Less theme entertaining on a budget, and we’re talking about parties, barbecues, picnics and more. Jessica’s got advice for throwing summer parties on a budget, and Carrie has a ton of great tips for preventing food waste at picnics, so it seemed appropriate to chime in with some healthy potluck recipes you can take to your next potluck!
In all honesty, my favorite potluck dish growing up was watergate salad, full of marshmallows, pineapple and nuts, but I’m not sure how well it qualifies for the “eat well” part of our series with its processed frozen whipped topping and instant pudding mix. That said, I think I’ll be adding this to our meal plan for Memorial Day because surely every kid needs to have it at least once it their life, right?
