We had a GREAT time last night!

Thanks to everyone who came out for our Second Annual Potluck -- we had a wonderful night and hope you did, too! Special thanks to our celebrity judges, Mayor Mike Callahan, Father Kevin Kennedy, and Andrea Seabrook (and Fifi!) for their tastebuds, to Kat Callahan for her babystting expertise, and to everyone who helped with this event, especially MJ Coolen and liz Tuckermanty.

With so many wonderful dishes, our judges had a very challenging task in picking their favorites, but, after much deliberation, they arrived at consensus. Here, then, are the 2012 Potluck Winners:

The snicker cookies were awesome. I wish we could take credit, but they were not ours. We brought chicken. :)
