I'm doing a buffet for a mid Saturday afternoon quasi-child's birthday party for about 12-15 people. Most of the people will be adults, but there will be some young kids there. This is a self-professed "health" crowd but God forbid I cook anything with bacon in it because if past history is any indicator, they'll be eating it in double handfuls.

I'm usually good at assembling these kinds of meals but I'm just not comfortable with this menu. Too many carb dishes? Too much food? Thoughts? BTW, someone else is bringing the birthday cake.

Tomato Onion Cheese Tart

Sauteed Gnocchi with Tarragon Tomato Sauce

Grilled Vegetable Platter

Cucumber Salad - I need a recipe!

Whipped Chickpea and Potato Crudite
