I'm hosting a surprise party with about 20 attending. I'm praying for good weather. ;)
I'm trying to keep a number of things in mind:
-The birthday boy is an adventurous eater (as are most of the guests)
-There are a handful of vegetarians
-I want to set out make-ahead snacks/apps throughout the evening
-I want just enough to grill that evening so that the grilling chef can enjoy socializing by the fire. Nothing too complicated time or consuming.
black bean salad (red pepper, onion, cilantro)
brie, papaya & onion quesadillas
shrimp & lime mini tostadas
grilled corn with cheese and lime
chili lime marinated chicken, beef, and mixed pepper skewers
ice cold beer
pitchers of margarita
Am I missing anything? Sound appealing? I'll have a day and half to myself to put it all together. I want to make sure the veggie folks and picky eaters will all find something to enjoy. Thank you!
