Dinner for 20- 2 hours to cook it

Daniel76 | Oct 6, 201107:48 AM

Well, my beautiful bride is throwing our friends a going away party.. It was kind of an impromptu thing that she sent out while we were having a couple of drinks.. We thought it was one of those things where you invite 30 and 10 people show up.. However, we invited 30 and 20 people are showing, tonight, at 8, I get home from work at 6, tonight..

So, this morning, it all started to set in a little bit.. In terms of the seating, this is not a problem as we have more than enough seats for everyone, we also have enough plates, glasses and silverware, the problem lies in the fact that I have not started cooking anything..

So, my question is, does anyone have any quick dishes that go over well for a group...

As of right now, I am considering making this chickpea salad.. It's requires opening several cans of chickpeas, throwing in some Italian Tuna, mixing with red onions, parsley, olive oil and red wine vinegar.

Next up, I was thinking of making a large pot of polenta, making a spicy sausage tomato sauce with some mussels... And a side of broccoli rabe and garlic..

Again, not married to any of these ideas, it's just the quickest thing i can think of..

Any suggestions would be appreciated..
