I'm taking my beans to a party in a few weeks. Cook them right before you leave home and then wrap the HOT pan in tin foil or thick bath towels( be careful!! IT"S HOT). Put a think layer of newspapers in the bottom of a cardboard box, put pan in and then top with more newspapers. They should stay warm for a pretty long time.

Like all my recipes... I just dump things in with out measuring.
But, these amounts are close. You may add or subract amounts.

2 cans S and W baked beans 28 ounces each
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup ketchup
fried chopped bacon with most of the fat removed
amount up to you.. I use about 3/4 of a cup
chopped onion.. amount up to you.. I use about two handfuls...

Directions:
mix all
and bake at 350 until warm.. 30-35 minutes

A cold soup like Gazpacho would work well. I don't have my recipe here with me, but it consists of a tomato base (not tomato sauce, but like canned tomatoes) with garden veggies, some chiles, garlic, onion, maybe some zuchini, definitely has to have cilantro. You can add your favorite hot-sauce, or leave the cold-heat out. This is cooked until the veggies are jsut barely tender, then chilled and served cold.

Fruit salads are always a hit. Try making them with colorful berries, mellon-balls, and citrus. For interesting flavor, add thinks like sliced star-fruit, or mangoe, pineapple, even kiwi or lo-quats, lychee fruit, etc. Flavor with nutmeg, and cinamon. Use Splenda to lightly sweeten.

And great baked beans are very good when served cold, as is cold spagheti, where the sauce is chilled with the noodles, and all mixed together.

this is my very favorite salad. It would be great for a potluck because
you can make it the day before and keep it in the fridge. Just make sure to
write "shake me!" on the bottle of dressing.

jkath's Summer Salad

3-4 cooked chicken breasts, cubed
1 bag red seedless grapes, each cut into halves (if you're that eager)
1 bag frozen peas, thawed
1 large bag (I use Ready-Pak) fresh spinach
4 stalks celery, chopped
1 small bag tri-colored spiral pasta, cooked, drained & cooled
2 jars artichoke hearts, drained well
2+ large english cucumbers, peeled & cubed
3+ green onions, sliced

Mix all ingredients together in LARGE bowl. Keep for up to 4 days after making. (Day 2 is always better!) Add dressing to each individual bowl of salad.

Dressing:
1 c. sugar
1 c. apple cider vinegar
2 c. vegetable oil
pepper to taste

Boil sugar and vinegar in microwave till boiling. (2 minutes on high will usually do it). Add oil and pepper; mix well. Refrigerate till cold in bottle. Shake extrememly well before every use.

We make this salad, but call it Taco Salad. My wife taught it to me years ago. I agree that it's a truly great salad.

For a great salad dressing to go with it, mix some good chili powder into a bottle of Russain Dressing. Is yummy

I call it taco salad too - but mix the catalina dressing with sour cream, and instead of doritos, I use fritos. And I use green onions rather than regular ones.

My favorite take along salad

1, 1 lb. bag frozen baby peas
1 12 oz can Spanish (red skin) peanuts
1 to 1 1/2 cup Miracle whip
Take everything separate and mix just before the meal.
I also toss in a teaspoon or so of mint or tarragon chiffonade if the peas are late season and don't taste fresh.
