My dinner club theme has been decided. American Tail gate party. Ugh. Everyone in the group is Canadian except the fellow who picked the theme. I'm beginning to think that our Mr. USA member is trying to set up us for failure!
So stereo-typically I would think you would serve beer and hot dogs, but I need something waaaaaaaaaay more upscale for this crowd. The typical 'go to' dish is not what our dinner club group is about. We strive to try to introduce some new foods, or do a special 'take' on an old classic, or at least make the presentation super-cool.
To make matters much worse for me, I am designated to bring side dishes only!!! That means veggies, salad, starches and bread. I have no clue to where to begin to take this theme to another level! I hope my Chowfriends, particularly any american tail gaters will be able to shed some light on this. I would love to hear any suggestions you have, as long as they fall into Tailgate: veggies, salad, starches or bread.
Maybe that is Mission Impossible?!? Let's hear what you got US ChowPals!
