If you eliminate the beef and the ribs you fix a lot of the problems. Forget about the fries and eliminate some last minute frantic work unless your version of fries means raw slender pieces of veggies. Make up your mind, green salad or slaw, one is enough. You did not mention how many people, but I always have better luck with plenty of a few tasty dishes rather than a many, many dishes that people can't make up their minds if they want to try it or not. So what if they miss a perfectly balance meal once that week? The main thing is to have a fun party.

As a diabetic, the only thing I would shy away from on your menu is the potato salad and dessert.

In May CWS said the party would be in July. I sure hope we get a food report on the party.

Charlie D and I will be there. Diabetic and Kosher kitchen taken care of.

I don't get it? Many guests and you are catering to 3 people? Cook for everyone and do something for the 3 who are killing it for everyone else. Fish and salad, you can't go wrong. Sorry if I sound like a jerk, but really? Why put you through this for 3 people?

In the end you are right S&P. I grow very tired of "guests" who expect favored treatment because of personal restrictions in their diet. As long as a little something is provided for them, they can eat what they choose when they get back in their own home. They won't starve.

Well, thank you Kayelle. I was thinking that I might have been mean. After all I meant to be! Why cater to a few? It's a party dam it!

She said there are 7 people with 'restrictions', and they made up more than half of the group. Nobody's 'killing it' for anybody.

I completely understand her wish to make her guests comfortable - I would do the same. Many of us see cooking for friends as a gift we give from the heart, and we try to give a gift that they would like.


Andy, I'd love to see the recipe for that olive salad. Care to share?
