Bring a Fabulous Dish! The next time you have a potluck, picnic, or family gathering, pick one of these terrific recipes to bring. It is guaranteed to be a hit! Some of these covered dishes are from dear Oxford friends, and they will have the group clamoring for second and third helpings. Deviled eggs are a picnic favorite, but can be a disaster to transport. There are containers available that securely hold two layers of eggs, and the handle on top makes carrying it a breeze. I highly recommend using one of these as opposed to trying to carry the slippery little devils on a f lat plate. I have included three egg recipes with distinctly different flavors and styles. Start with the Spicy Southwest Deviled Eggs. Minced pickled jalapeno peppers provide the heat, and cumin lends a smoky Southwest f lavor. If you branch out from traditional deviled eggs with this version, they will be a hit. The Macaroni and Ham Salad has a touch of Cajun seasoning,

diced tomatoes and a variety of bell peppers. It can be made a day ahead, which is a real plus. If you are in charge of bringing a beverage, why not try my not-toosweet version of Southern Sweet Tea, or some refreshing fresh-squeezed lemonade. For dessert, you can’t go wrong with bread pudding. Any of these recipes are great alongside the usual fare of fried chicken, burgers or hot dogs. Take 51
