So, next time invite the two people who ate everything, and add a whole NEW group of people to the invite list in place of the old ones.

Oh, and make sure the OLD group of people find out you had another get together, without them!

Yes, I AM one vindictive S.O.B.! Thanks for asking.

I agree. However I paid $3.99 a pound for nice red ones.

Just some people don't know whats good that's all.

That reminds me - my stepsister's husband eats only meat and white stuff. No colored veggies. How incredibly limiting.

You aren't alone there GotGarlic! I love it too and in fact had a variation of it last night!
Too many restaurants, not enough time...

I didn't see anything wrong with the menu ... although if you want to be in control of what your guests eat ... change you're service order.

Instead of serving the salad and soup at the same time ... serve the salad and bread first. Then when your guests have quit eating the salad, or just start picking at it - bring out the soup, and more bread.

Who wants to east somethig cold while the hot food is getting cold?

Just my 2-cents observation ....
