I'm invited to a Christmas party on Friday & I've really been looking forward to it. It's very casual and sounds like it'll be a huge crowd. The hosts sent out an email invite (totally acceptable in this circle) and said that they'll have food and a variety of beer & soft drinks, and that we could feel free to bring a covered dish and/or refreshements "if you like". So, no requirement.
Here's my dilemma. I am a very "share-y" person. In normal circumstances, I would definitely bring a bottle of wine & an appetizer or dessert item. However, the next day (early in the am) is my final "Fit Test" for the 10 week exercise class I am taking. I will not be drinking or eating at this party, and will leave very early. I will still bring a bottle of wine, but I'm not sure what to do about the dish to share. I could make cookies, but I'm thinking they are going to have a lot of cookies around. I know I don't have to, but I feel like I should.
What do e-hellions think? Make cookies or something similarly easy? Or just bring the wine?
