Ok firstly I should mention I don't live in Canada or the US. A couple of good omni friends of mine are going to be celebrating Canada Day (July 1st I believe) and Independence Day respectively and are having what they call 'family nights'/potluck dinners. Usually when I go to potlucks at their place I usually just take Chili.
However what should I take for Canada Day? Maple syrup is expensive here so I don't wanna use too much of it.
The only idea I have is to take Pumpkin Pie for Independence Day, but also need something for Dinner.
Also we are all college students so it would be great if it were relatively cheap and could feed between 8-12 people.
Any suggestions, websites and recipes would be helpful. Also I don't have a crock-pot and it preferably needs to be easy to transport, although their house is about a block away from mine (5min walk).
Thanks in advance!
P.S. We are currently in the middle of winter here as well.
