A Little Cultural Gaffe


I usually bring brownies or cookies for potluck events, but the other night considering the temperatures, Seven-Layer Mexican dip seemed like a better idea. Something cool and fresh to beat the heat...

But unfortunately, I had two events at the same time... So I dropped one dish off (along with my little girl) and went to my son's concert... An hour or so later, a friend dropped off my daughter for me at the music hall... with my untouched platter in hand...

"They didn't have any plates, so they couldn't serve it," she apologized.

It just never occurred to me that they wouldn't know to eat it with the two bags of chips I'd left on the table nearby. Oops! (Or ouplah, as they might say here.)

So when it was time to break into the music hall's platter, I was all prepared. As I set it out and people started asking questions, I dug in (albeit with a spoon to spread it a little more efficiently) and passed around the first chips myself... Then it caught on, and the dip was eventually all finished off....

Oh, well, the extra platter was ready to go for the next night's event instead...

If you are among my French readers and you don't know this dish, I've put the recipe on my other site (under construction) and you can find it here... Enjoy! It's easy to make!

BTW, it's June, so it's non-stop here. But school finally lets out for us on Friday....
