In addition to G'Garlic's questions, how many guests will you be serving? Do you have any budget restraints? Will you be responsible for ALL the food and its preparation? What time of day are you planning to serve your meal?

This is real inspiration. Look what Julia became!
Practice!! haha There's nothing more stressful than trying out brand-new recipes on a houseful of guests when you want everything to be perfect ...
Are your guests bringing dishes to the meal? or is it all on you? Are you going for fancy? or casual? Do you have the entree decided? are you doing a sit-down? or more of a buffet style? (In typical DC style, we all answer by asking more questions!)
