That's easy....

Spam sandwiches, hands down. And, if it's really special, I cut the crust off the bread. I dunno, just a crazy moment. Actually, it has to be lasagna, tossed salad with garlic bread. That sounds so good I wish I had time to make it tonight.

It happens so infrequently, that I usually don't do the same thing. The recent meals I've done are Black Beans & Rice with Cilantro Pesto, Lasagna, Manicotti, Indian or Thai, Pumpkins with Wild Mushroom Stuffing. . . I like to demonstrate that vegan cooking doesn't have to be boring or weird.

I like to grill for a crowd. Steaks, burgers, chicken, pork, brats, dogs, kebabs, you name it, and I'll grill it!
I ain't got no sprinkle cheese. All I got's this here Velveeta cheese...

I have more than one. Roast Chicken with mashed potatoes of some kind or a potato gratin (not "au gratin" potatoes); baked chicken and dressing; linguine with white clam sauce; Red Beans and Rice and Fried Pork Chops; Scallops Tommy (p. 86); Falafel Crusted Salmon on a bed of Swiss Chard; Chicken in Red Wine Vinegar Sauce. Seafood Risotto; Rabbit Sinatra, Boeuf Bourguignon. I think that about wraps it up.
Wine is the food that completes the meal.

Winter time... soup! Clam chowder is always a big hit or a nice beef/bear stew

Summer or warmer times of the year... chicken of some sort with salads and bread and veggies....

Some of my standard company dinners:

Caesar salad, prime rib roast, twice baked potatoes, asparagus and chocolate mousse.

Lasanga, tossed salad, bread, cheesecake

Chicken and black bean enchiladas, guacamole, chips, margaritas and strawberry cake for dessert

BBQ brisket, mac & cheese, slaw and cupcakes.

ok, now I'm officially hungry.
