Community Potluck for May

We had what I thought was going to be our final Community Potluck this week, but it is going to continue. 
Just need a couple more host/hostess signups.

The Community Potluck was started by Harriett Beach last year and with her recent death, I thought it would basically go away.  I wrote a little about her here.

She had it set up so that no one person was responsible for the whole thing.  We could sign up to host in a particular month and it has actually worked out quite well.
Next month is covered, as is September and October.  We just need someone to step in for July and August.

But, I had to share the great dishes that were brought and enjoyed the other night.

First though, this gorgeous pot is actually one that Harriett Beach made and it was only fitting that it graced a table for the potluck.  She was a potter. 
I made some Dolmathes or Dolmades- either spelling is correct, in honor of Harriett as Greek food was one of her favorites.
We had some lovely chicken salad
Corn pudding
A chopped salad - the picture I took of it with the plastic wrap off was too blurry to use.
there were some nibbles.
a lovely Pasta salad, and doesn't it look good against the blue bowl.
A Zucchini noodle salad
And Asian Style salad
Corn casserole
There was also this lovely pea salad and the bowl was so pretty it was presented in.
Above a Lasagna, I only got a picture of it with the plastic wrap on.
and here is some lovely smoked salmon on cream cheese and baguette slices
Biscuits and I got to indulge my guilty please which is dunking a biscuit into some coleslaw juice.
Don't judge, it's good.
Now for the desserts...

Key Lime Pie, which disappeared fast.
A selection of yummy baked goods.
We had some pineapple with Santa holding his toothpickes
There were some candies along with squares of an energy bar. 
This heavenly Moroccan Coconut Cake
We also had some watermelon,
and boiled peanuts

And in case anyone is interested, this is how my plate looked,, I had to taste test everything. 

I wanted to add that the Lanark Boat Club was almost totally destroyed during Hurricane Michael last year, and they have done a phenomenal job of restoring the building.

This is how it looked shortly after the storm.

 I also want to add that this is my 1000th post, I can't believe I'd had so much to say about so many different dishes.  

Next question, what to do to celebrate my verbosity? Hmmmm
