Holy friends -
I have a great resource for vegan (pareve) dishes for pot-lucks.
The Post-Punk Kitchen is a treasure trove of tasty goodness.
I've made vegan cornbread, Tempeh chili con frijoles, and the Sweet & Spicy BBQ Tempeh with Peppers, all of which have been tremendous (and are perfectly sized for a pot-luck submission).
Check it out for yourself.

Hello fellow Sustainable mayvens-
I attended the GreenFest in DC and one of the things I got a lead on was compostables, as opposed to disposables. In quantity, the price is not prohibitive. They have 3 advantages:
1) they are not made of petroleum, so no fossil fuels consumed in their direct creation (though of course in their manufacture and transit)
2) they are compostable, and don't add to the landfill
3) composting is easier than washing and obviously ethically superior to trashing.http://www.biodegradablestore.com/pp/accessories/pp_portion_cups_C_S.html
the caveat of course is THAT SOMEONE HAS TO ACTUALLY COMPOST THEM.
Thanks! Keep the letters coming!
