I'm at a loss for what to make. I'm having a "doesn't come around often enough" lunch with some great girlfriends. I want to make a really nice, from scratch lunch that will still allow me time to chat and visit. If the dish has to be finished while friends are in the kitchen that is fine too. I was originally thinking Caesar salad with parmesan chicken breast but it's freezing here (as much of the country) and salad just doesn't speak to the season.
The biggest restriction is nothing overtly egg-y (so no quiche, strata, soufflé, etc.)
Just not sure what direction to head. Soup and homemade bread? Pasta? Chicken Paprikash? Any help appreciated!!!
