Sex and the City- The Housewife's Lady's Lunch

I've been invited to an all girls, Sex and the City party next Saturday. I'm excited! Getting together with a bunch of girlfriends to eat, drink, laugh, and then watch a movie that's bound to be good sounds like a pretty good time, right?

The best part of the day for me? It's not at my house, and it's a potluck. I LOVE potlucks. Wanna know why? Because I get to seriously eat. And not only eat, but I get to eat other people's food. And let me tell ya- my girls can cook. I think I require my friends to be good cooks- that way I don't have to. Pretty smart, right? If you cook for me I'll bring the booz. I am a professional, after all.

For drinks I was thinking something pink, since that's the whole theme of this movie. I know we'll be having Cosmopolitan's, which are very yummy, but I need a little variety, you know? I also thought maybe instead of something pink that I'd bring a couple of bottles of Asti Spumante. It's cheap, sweet, and bubbly. Perfect for a lady's lunch. Not that we will be acting like "ladies"....hee hee....but that will just makes things that much more interesting. I'm sure the party will be a lot of yummy food face-stuffing, swearing, boob shakin, and belly laughing.

So here's my problem. It's a potluck. Which means I need to bring something food related. I'm at a loss. I don't know what to make! I need something that's fairly easy (which means a few hours making it at most), and most importantly... yummy. Nothing too over the top. I don't need to be the expert, but I need to at least fit in with the experts, know what I mean?

Here's your assignment:

Find me something to bring to the Lady's Lunch! Any ideas would be appreciated. And if I pick your idea, I promise I'll come over and clean your house. Okay, not really, but we can pretend.

Tiffany makes a wonderful spinach dip. It's frozen spinach, leak soup, mayonnaise and water chestnuts. Sounds weird, but I PROMISE it is SOOO yummy, and very very easy.

If it's a SATC-inspired potluck, you should bring some delicious cupcakes with pink icing and maybe even shoe decorations on top :-)

If you cannot find marzipan shoes you can buy some Barbie shoes - they are making some really cute ones!

I made Buffalo Chicken Dip for some friends and it was a huge hit (I was really shocked at how much everyone loved it!) - another thing I always get good reviews on is a Spinach Artichoke Salad that's light and super easy. Let me know if you need recipes :)

I guess it depends if you're going for healthy or just plain delicious and who cares about calories? I have a yummy bacon crescent appetizer recipe, but it has (DUH) bacon in it and cream cheese. Not exactly Jenny Craig food.
