Made me hungry! Everything sounded so delicious (except for the ketsup-topped noodles...)

I thought it meandered a bit toward the end--but I love the concept of "cooking" being one of the greater gifts. Really cute.
Oh, yes, a chuckle out loud treat for me! Being a pastor's wife, this all resounded immediately! LOL! You've captured a colorful snapshot of the traditional church pot luck and church 'people'! I thoroughly enjoyed reading this delightful story!
I love your opening paragraph - "the greater gift", indeed! Too funny. Wonderful story telling throughout. It was truly a pleasure to read.
Ahhh ... yes, those were the good old days of 'Pot Luck Church Dinners' - what fun - what memories!

You described them to a tee - very well done.

We do tend to create our own important 'gifts' don't we? ;) Yep - brought back many memeories - thank you.

I loved your description and characterization throughout - wonderful stuff that kept my interest from beginning to end. Great ending too!
Great job of showing the different personalities, as different as the dishes at a potluck. One of the names I even attend Sunday School with each week! This piece zings with pizazz! I really enjoyed reading it!
