I'm starting to plan a BBQ to celebrate birthdays for my (soon-to-be) 18 y.o. and our (soon-to-be) 60 y.o. next door neighbor who share the same birthday. Our immediate neighbors get together for every 'summer' holiday. Each 'house' brings a side or dessert to share, and their own 'main' to grill for their family.
As there are two big birthdays for Labor Day, I would like to break tradition and plan something a little more organized, and do the 'main' myself, and most sides.
My neighbors are very simple people. I thought my Thai Noodle salad that I brought to the 4th celebration wouldn't go over well...even though it was met with approval. I was thinking of a mexican spread. Grilled chicken and beef soft tacos for the main. But I'm open to other possibilities.
What would you do, Hounds?
Thanks for your help!
