At least weekly here in Georgetown, someone organizes a potluck beach event. Every once in a while these are actual dinner affairs where people bring items suitable for a meal. More often than not though, people simply contribute finger foods and snacks to be consumed alongside their favorite beverages while socializing and watching the sun go down.
I have heard from more than one cruiser that, although they provisioned well before leaving the US, they were completely unprepared for this. As simple as it sounds, I will admit that it is quite a struggle to come up with something suitable (creative?) in a place were a bag of potato chips costs 7-10 dollars and a box of crackers is about 7 bucks as well. Produce is also very costly making veggie trays a bit out of the question. So here is a challenge to our blog readers… do you have any suitable snack-type suggestions that would be appropriate to bring to a potluck beach affair? If so, please post them here. I’m sure that everyone would love to read about, and later try them out. I know we would!
