i *was* going to make myself a birthday dinner with a couple of my friends in 2 wks. as it turns out, the invitations went out and EVERYONE is coming. It is like my Christmas party crowd, we think they are deprived of holiday festivities half way through the year..
originally, i wanted to make a dinner a la julia child. Since her "birthday menu" features either duck, lamb, or chicken- i figured it is harder to sautee/3 or 4 chickens at one time.
in light that i have 15 + people coming for dinner (in my tiny apartment), i am not sure what i can make that would not kill me in the heat of august..
as a jumping off pt. i'm making TKeller's peas and carrots and what else?
a fish course?
is quiche wierd?
simple cheese course
i'm making a big gooychocolate cake, that, i'm sure.
what to drink?
