I went with "no, never" because for a sit down dinner party, that is generally how I operate. Most often it is neighbors or family that I have over and in both cases, I prefer to prepare the entire meal but for different reasons.
With family, I prefer it because it is my way of repaying all the kindnesses they have show me over the years. They can come over to my house, enjoy a wonderful meal and not have to worry about a single thing but having a nice time. With neighbors, in some ways the reasons are similar, but I have to add that I simply prefer my cooking to theirs.
Now.... if I were having SC people over, I would definitely have them bring stuff, they are all such great cooks! Gina
