4th of July Picnic Anxiety Revealed! and a shopping list

June 26, 2013

We’ve been talking a lot this week about this American Flag Bacon Cake because it really is just that incredibly delicious. Also, I know how stressful it is to be invited to a party and not know what to bring. I mean—you have to bring something, especially if it’s a potluck picnic. Bringing soda seems uninspired, salads there are always a table full of, and cupcakes (as much as I love them) have lost a bit of their sparkle lately. When I’m trying to think of a dish to bring to a picnic I tend to have these strange insecurities. Like, if my dish sits on the table all day untouched, that must mean I’m a terrible cook. Or worse, a dirty cook. They think my bean salad will poison them! Or if I bring cookies but five other people also bring cookies and no one eats my cookies, that must certainly mean that no one likes me. No one at this party likes me! Ok, so I get a bit carried away....but I can't help but think I'm not the only one....so I need you to let me know what you're thinking when you hand off your potluck contribution and watch it sit...untouched.  Wahhhhh!!! [box] To help you out a little more, I’ve put together your shopping list for you. Yes. I care about you that much. If you’re a Wegman’s shopper click here and you’ll find everything you need to make this cake from start to finish. Amazon shoppers, this list’s for you. Hope this helps and happy baking! [/box]
