I protest the inclusion of a soup, any soup, no matter how good. I suppose there are some potlucks where a soup may be welcome--but I'm annoyed when someone shows up with an unbidden pot of soup, requiring me to put out a stack of soup bowls/soup spoons along with the plates (among other things, I have fewer bowls than plates, so it gets awkward). If you're invited to bring soup to a potluck, then spot on; but otherwise, don't do it.

I came here for some modern takes on potluck recipes and saw your comments on soup. We are soul sisters and in the minority on our soup opinions. How I hate to see anyone carrying in a crockpot of soup at our volunteer functions. They are heavy, need to be plugged in somewhere and you end up babysitting it while the "soup bringer" skips off to enjoy the function. I am well known in our club for my hatred of soup and crockpots in general. So thank you for indulging my soup/crockpot tantrum. I do feel better.
