Need Ideas For A No-Fail Meal For Family Gathering

Recommended Posts

If you're going..I'm going too Sylvia! I'll help you shovel. :D

:lol: Man, how I would love that! So would my husband. Shoveling and using the snow blower are not his favourite activities from a long stressful day at work.

I'll get a snow blower!

Funny. :lol: We already have one. I'll let you know when the big blizzards hit - so far we've just had normal snowfall. Sometimes the drifts are so high we have to shovel out of the house and walk on top of the drifts! Fun for kids but not for us.

Sounds like Sylvia will be inside taste-testing the cookies while the "kids" are out taking care of the walkways.

:P She and I will be baking and cooking up a storm inside where it is nice and cozy. We also have a huge driveway that needs to be taken care of...any volunteers? I promise to feed you yummy stuff! :)

I want in, but sadly, I cannot shovel either.

I can pour beverages and set the table, however. :)

And that is just the kind of thing I need! Someone I can order around. Hee hee! :P

She'll probably at least make me keep all the dirty dishes washed while she cooks up a storm. :lol:

You guessed it! Sometimes I cook so much I must do the dishes several times in one day. I have a dishwasher but don't have time to wait for it! :lol:

I always wanted a snow plow! I'll get a tractor with the plow attachment.

I do recall that conversation! The offer is still valid if you like! There is fresh snow just waiting for you to shovel. :P

I wonder how many people you've said could come and live with you! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Edit: I think we hijacked this thread. Hopefully the OP has gotten some good ideas of what to cook.

Not sure how many but I think you were the first!! :lol:

Just thought of something else to add to the list of food ideas - a pizza party! You could make a few crusts in advance and have people add their own toppings (if your grandparents go for that sort of thing). I think it could be fun!

And for dessert maybe you could have an ice cream bar with lots of toppings including chocolate, a couple of sauces, toasted nuts, fruit...

I love to cook and I am working to make my favs gluten free. Here is one of our all time favorites that is a crowd pleaser. AND it is so easy.

http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/Grilled-Flank-Steak-with-Rosemary-731

Depending on your part of the country, you may not be able to get flank steak. You can use this marinade with chicken or pork loin too. It is so good.

I use Tamari instead of soy and voila! Make sure you slice it against the grain.

I serve with rice (or roasted potatoes) and grilled asparagus.

Let me know if any of you try it or have questions.
