I would likely make something I would make for my family as well. I would just invite you all to thanksgiving. I am having a turkey and stuffing with pumpkin and butternut squash. Mashed Califlower with roasted garlic and onions. Of course I am not exectly sure how I am cooking all this other then the califlower and the turkey. I have not decided if the squash will be roasted with the turkey or not but that is the way I am going right now. I have to figure out if I put them in first or if I wait till the last couple of hours. with a chicken I would just put them in when I started the chicken but a turkey takes longer to cook. I would also figure out something really nice for desert maybe a tofu pumpkin pie. it sounds funny but is very rich and creamy and a lot better for you.

ArticKatt - I LOVE mashed cauliflower!!

mmmm - I think I would just go to your houses - and kadesma - my pants don't fit anymore just reading everything!

I don't normally do desserts but I have a recipe called Slice of Sin that is wonderful!

I might have to do something from here - like a smoked pork butt with my two homemade sauces and my mom's macaroni salad - after that I'm not sure.

And then I may do something entirely different! lol

I've been thinking about this and can't decide.

Maybe cheddar and walnut stuffed mushroom caps or death-defying baked stuffed shrimp for appetizers. Witha a nice non-oaky chardonnay.

For the entree, Goulash or chicken paprikash with spaetzle, or boeuf bourguignon and noodles, or pot roast and garlic mashed potaotes. Old vine red zinfandel for wine.

For dessert, I think cheesecake with a selection of fruit toppings or carrot cake or triple pecan pie and homemade vanilla ice cream.

Coffee and after dinner drinks in the "study". Sorry, no cigars allowed.

OK, GB, you never told us what you'd make. Let's hear it!

My cheese souffle. (Chocolate souffle for dessert. Need to work on that one a bit.) Souffle, imo, says elegant, yet there's something so soothing in the taste, texture and aroma. You all must be barefoot, so it doesn't de-poof in the oven. As long as it's a virtual dinner, champagne, caviar, and smoked oysters - and I'm set. Oh, and an antipasti would be nice too.

i'd make veal scallopine and a side of fettucine alfredo and serve that with a red wine of some sort.
as a pre-meal appetizer, i'd go to the antipasto bar and get all kinds of goodies. after the meal, there would be cheese and fruit. or maybe coffee and a dessert- i'm not sure what; i'm not good at desserts.

wouldn't it be cool if we had a gathering where each person brought one basic ingredient- like one person would bring some cheddar cheese and another would bring some baby spinach- and we would cook and make a buffet of sorts using all the ingredients?

I am really not sure. I would want to make my Bolognese sauce because it is the best tasting thing I make, but I don't know what else I would serve with it. I have never made my own pasta so i don't think I would want to try that out on one of you Garlic bread always goes well with this meal. I really don't know what I would serve though. Maybe if it was summer I would make my Chimichurri Steak with Black Eyed Pea Salad and maybe another salad. Or maybe a killer burger on the grill if kids were coming as well. I am really not sure LOL.

Well, I"d have to make y'all some lowcountry favorites - Shrimp and Grits, or maybe Shrimp Perlow, Fried green tomatoes, butter beans, with some ham and cheese biscuits; and peach ice cream for dessert!
