Pistachio Dessert- A St. Paddy’s Day potluck dessert

Pistachio Dessert- A St. Paddy’s Day potluck dessert

You can make this St. Patrick’s dessert in less than 30 minutes, although it’s best to sit overnight in the fridge. If you have less time than that, 3-4 hours will do it. This Pistachio dessert is also versatile in that you can change up the topping  (use shaved toasted almonds, finely chopped pistachios, another chopped nut or chocolate shavings) and bring it to any potluck any time of year

I envisioned days, even weeks, stretched out in front of me, leisurely perusing Pinterest, looking for that perfect recipe (or even coming up with my own). Then the next thing I know, it’s closing in on me, only a few days away. Funny, when I first heard about the potluck, it felt like ages away.

I have a love-hate relationship with potlucks. I love the social part of course, sampling new and interesting dishes, not having to cook that day and deciding on what I’m going to bring. Yet I hate deciding on what I’m going to bring.

Take this weekend for instance:

I have a Valentine’s Day potluck coming up at work on Tuesday. It’s now Friday. And in between the invite and life happening, a stomach bug has infiltrated my abode, taken down my entire family and left me bracing to be its next victim.  I have tons to do this weekend, along with kids’ activities and I still haven’t an inkling of what I’m bringing to the potluck.
