Friends coming for…

Friends coming for playdate / brunch today; should be fun. I cooked a salmon curry last night, and have lots of berries, chips and guac and salsa, cheese and crackers, lemonade and tea to set out; trying to decide what else I should make. Chicken pad thai? Red chili eggs? Green chili-onion frittata? Sausages with bell peppers? Or do I just accept the potluck designation and trust that other people will bring plenty of other food? I am pretty much chronically incapable of doing that when hosting. Question -- when you host a potluck, do you only make one dish, or several? (In other words, am I borderline pathological on the providing-food part of hosting, or am I just being normally polite?)
