This week  is going to be potluck, a potluck dinner that is.....
A recipe a day for a specific course.

VE is responsible for appetizers
Pepper is doing salad
JJ has to do a meat dish
VS is doing a side dish
and Dude is our dessert person

By the end of the week you will have a complete menu for a weekend meal :)

Of course since we are NOT co-ordinating our dishes, it will be a true POTLUCK!

                                         CHEESE PUFFS

1 Cup grated cheddar cheese
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup sifted all-purpose flour

Early in day or the day all ingredients in bowl...blend together using your fingers until dough is smooth.  Refrigerate for at least 1/2 hour.  Form into 1/2 inch balls, place on cookie sheet.  Refrigerate.  To serve bake balls at 350 degrees 10 to 15 minutes, makes 2&1/2 dozen.

1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 medium tomatoes, finely chopped
1 cup onion, finely chopped
1&1/2 teaspoon seasoning salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper

That's all for now folks, check back tomorrow for the next course.....

Great choices VE. I love the guacamole.
This is such a fun idea, I've always loved potluck dinners.
