How about an antipasto platter? You can go as gourmet as you like with it. Lots of veges and cheeses as well as some of the cold meats. It can be as complex as your imagination and budget allow.

Too many restaurants, not enough time...

Well, you could do a peach cobbler. If that is too complicated, you could do a peach shortcake type thing - get some frozen peaches and macerate overnight (put the peaches in a bowl and sprinkle with sugar), or just use canned sliced peaches, get some pound cake from the bakery at your grocery store and slice about 1/4 - 1/2 inch thick - top with some peaches and juice, and a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

How about seafood (crab and/or shrimp) stuffed portobello mushrooms. You can prep them at home, pop them in the oven when you get there, then slice into wedges & serve with party picks.

Shrimp-stuffed Portobello Mushrooms

Here's a dish I like, that's not the same old same old. You could try couscous in place of the rice.

Hopefully that's not the ... end product... of the BBQ. Though I'm curious too.

PEA SALAD or Trinidad Potato Salad

Just make some Pea Salad. I use frozen peas and let them thaw (I don't cook them for that extra little crunch), then add mayo, chopped tomato, chopped red onion or green onions, some cubed sharp cheddar cheese, or whatever cheese you like, celery. If you want a kick, you can add some chopped jalepeno pepper. Mix it all together and chill. Add whatever you like.

I am not listing the amounts because it depends on how much you are making

A friend from Trinidad gave me this recipe years ago. It is really unique and easy.

Trinidad Potato Salad

Cooked cubed potatoes
Chopped onion
Frozen peas (about 1/4 cup to every 2 cups of potatoes)
Salt and pepper
Angostora Drink Bitters

Mix the first 5 ingredients in bowl then splash in enough of the drink bitters to make the mayonnaise pink. Chill.
