Cooking for 14 - menu check and seeking advice?

xiaobao12 | Jun 3, 2011 06:29 AM

On Sunday, I have to cook for 14 people! B-day party for my host. Menu will be chicken Parmesan (I am confident about it) with Batali's tomato sauce (except I'm going to add olives) and a side of pasta with the tomato sauce. Salad with a honey mustard vinaegrette. Dessert will probably be a crumbled-oreo with vanilla icecream and a toffee disc.

What do you guys and gals think about this menu? I'm all ears. My reason for going with the honey-mustard dressing (shallots, mustard, red wine vin, EVOO) is because it's sweet and this will contrast with the saltiness of the Chicken Parm. Is there a cheese I could toss with the salad too - feta?

lso, I'm a bit nervous about having to cook a rather tedious main course in such large quantities. I am planning on starting the tomato sauce tomorrow so that I don't have to worry. Any advice is appreciated.

Thanks for your input!!
