Friends, today I’m thinking about how easy it is to host a potluck this month, especially with all the leftovers we may have! Enjoy this video below how to make this Mexican Shepherd’s Pie Recipe!

Invite a few friends, ask them to bring their favorite dish, set the table (or not), and just enjoy!

Can you imagine if you could take away the dread of having company?

I’ve been there, Friends. I’ve made that initial invite, and then later regretted the commitment.

Why are commitments so hard these days, by the way?

Besides struggling with perfectionism, it doesn’t help that it’s a frustrating election year, and everyone is on pins and needles, or in utter disgust. It sort of takes away the party mood, that is for sure.

But we have to remember, November is the month of thanksgiving. No matter what is happening in our world, we need to come together, break bread, talk, share, and be there for each other!

They select the highest quality beans, ensuring the perfect taste and texture, which is why I love to use their assortments (garbanzo, kidney beans, black beans, to name a few), adding them to our favorite soups, dips, one-pot meals, and side dishes.
