40th birthday - menu help please

maplesugar | May 12, 2010 09:46 AM

My husband is turning 40 and we're having about 25 of our nearest and dearest friends and their kids over to celebrate. I need help with menu ideas!

Pioneer Woman's Bacon wrapped jalapeno thingies
Chicken Empanaditas
Shrimp Ceviche

Pork Tenderloin - advice on a rub?
something vege?

In terms of cake - he likes lemon everything - I've made Ina Garten's lemon loaf for him I dunno how many times - but his Mom always made him a chocolate layer cake that involved a layer of cake, a layer of marshmallows and chocolate glaze, a second layer of cake, more marshmallows and topped with more glaze. Do I make two since it has to serve about 30? Break with tradition and go with lemon? Chuck the cake idea and make brownies?

Thanks in advance for your help!
