Girls night out?
Well, more like day time BBQ/picnic for 11-12 year old girls and their mothers. Main foods are hamburgers, maybe hot dogs. We will try to put out as many fixings as possible, here is tentative list:
Sautéed mushrooms
Sautéed onions
Crispy onions
Dijon mustard
Thousand island dressing
Ranch dressing
Onion dip
BBQ sauce
Question is like this, do we need to make salads? What kind of salads. The picnic is going to be in a part, so no kitchen, but we can make everything ahead of time, but I do not want to make too much stuff because I'm sure all the mommies are on a diet. Like I was thinking corn on a cub, but my wife doesn't think it will fly with ladies.
Please help me out. No Dairy please.

You already have lettuce, tomatoes, etc. If someone wants a salad they can make it from the fixings. Just shred the lettuce a little more than you would for a burger and provide some extra.

You mean I should not make anything else?

I think you have way too many toppings. How many people total?

Good Evening Charlie,

Some things not yet mentioned:

Green Goddess Salad Dressing

*** Olive Assortment ( Black Kalamata, Green and Nicoise varieties ) : on toothpicks or skewers with pickles for example

Caponata - Eggplant, capers, olives, tomatoes


*** Falafal in Pita ( to serve as a vegetarian hamburger substitute ) & is okay to eat at any temperature

Breadsticks, Pita, Buns for Burgers - assorted breads and crackers

If I can think of anything else when I arrive home, I shall post tomorrow.

Dessert ? Home made Cookies ?

Kind regards,

Oh, yeah, I was going to say, please feel free to comment on the topicks too. Honestly i do not know how many people it could be anywhere from 30 to 60-70. We have not gotten any responces yet.

Is it going to be kosher? If not, sliced cheese would be nice as a topping.

I just thought of this, A Spanish Omelette, which is a frittata prepared with: ( for those who do not eat red meat )

Evoo ( extra virgin olive oil )
onion filling
potato filling
Salt and pepper

** A drizzle of ketchup and some bread ...

Teens tend go for this ...

With burgers and dogs, you might consider beans, potato chips, cold potato salad, coleslaw, deviled eggs. All of these things transport well.

I agree with Andy about too many fixings. Most things of this type I've been involved with, they might have ketchup, mustard, and pickles. Sometimes onions, tomatoes, and lettuce.
