If you are a picky eater and you are invited to a potluck party, what would you bring?

Asked by Kardamom (23780 points ) July 9th, 2014

Would you simply not attend the party, or would you bring something that you like, and expect that that is probably the only thing you would eat at the party?

What would you hope that other people would bring to the party, that you would be willing to eat?

Just in case we decide to have a summer Fluther potluck party, what do you picky folks want us to bring for you?

As most of you know, I am a vegetarian, and I have a cousin who has celiac disease, several relatives that have diabetes, my Dad is lactose intolerant, my best friend’s boyfriend won’t eat mushrooms, beans or anything spicy (even though he’s a vegetarian) and one of my close friends has a severe peanut allergy. Thank goodness I’m not a picky eater and I love to cook and track down recipes, so I don’t mind trying to accommodate everybody’s tastes and needs.

I’m just wondering if there are a few universal recipes that everybody likes.

If you are the picky eater, what will you bring to the party, and what would you like us to bring?

I’m putting this in General, because I don’t want anybody to make fun of, or be disparaging towards anybody who has unusual or special eating habits, because it can be tough.I just want to figure out what foods might work for everybody.
