Baby Boomers RETRO Dinner Party

Robbie711 | Jan 27, 2007 11:40 PM

I'm looking for a few really good--not just overly obvious--courses to serve for a 60/70's slightly upscale Retro dinner (comfort food) party. I was thinking very upscale mac n'cheese; lamb chops; interesting squash or pea side dish. 1st course could include: clam chowder; or split pea soap; and mixed garden salad or cantelope. Desserta; Tapioca pudding; or bread pudding; or make your own sundaes (something like that). I thought I'd serve Gin & Tonics (or vodka tonics), and slow gin fizzes. The apps. could include: sardines on crackers, interesting dips, and maybe shrimp cocktail, or oysters. Oh yea and POPOVERS! Remeber those? Any takers? I'd love your ideasl
