Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Default Simple potluck dish

I serve on a local village board. We had our December meeting tonight. Everyone was supposed to bring a dish to pass. Wife came to the rescue. She bought dry salami, cheese, crackers and olives. She arranged it on a decorative tray.

Much to my surprise, it was a big hit! I came back with virtually nothing. That never happens.

Nobody on the board likes each other but for a brief time, everyone kinda hung out like friends.

So... Next time you get tagged for some potluck, just buy cheese, salami, crackers and olives. Arrange it tastefully on a tray and it will disappear.

I love me a loaded charcuterie board. It's what the wife & I ate for ever New Years except the millennial where we actually went out.

Nothing like a Mediterranean dish to munch on. Spanish Tapas and beer...typical bar food in Spain.

At the church socials, our potluck dish was a huge bowl of Greek spinach salad. It was always gone before anything else.

A cold antipasto tray and something to wash it down with. Sounds great to me and is something I miss from living in Italy.

My sister-in-law has a large serving tray, that she uses to make a huge meat, crackers, cheese, and veggie tray. Any dips for the veggies, are in bowls off to the side, with a spoon in each one, so you can grab a couple spoonfulls of dips for your plate.

Many years ago we hit a Barcelona bar for a beer and their on the bar is trays of incredible looking munchies. When they told us help yourselves I could not believe it. Holy sheeet 'Tapas' I won't forget that one.
I found the Spanish to be a rather classy good people and all were just picking and sampling and we did the same.
Glad we were sober and contained ourselves or the crew I was with could have easily turned into American pigs with the spread they put out.
