Cooperative Family meal
This isn't quite a pot-luck, but similar. Plan a meal for the two families to attend at one of the homes. Choose a main dish that is easy to share--something cold like Hawaiian Haystacks or Mexican Stack is good for the summer, a soup of some sort would be good for colder climates. The key is to use a recipe that is easily divided between the two families. Make a list of the ingredients and have each family bring half.
Another twist would be to simply make sure the base materials are provided (ie. the rice and meat for haystacks, or the chips and meat for Mexican stack) and then leave the other ingredients to each family. This could make for a unique and fun meal!
