Need Dinner Idea Quickly!

JennyHunter | Mar 1, 2007 09:24 AM

I just found out my best friend is coming for dinner tomorrow night. This is the first time she will be visiting since having twins 5 months ago. She always looks forward to my dinners - but I am at a loss for a good idea. The problem is I have a 1 year old and don't have the time like I used to for elaborate meals. But I don't want to let her down. She's been thru a really rough 6 months. I'd like to make or prep it all tonight if possible. And I don't want to make lasagna, stew, wtc... b/c I know she has her fill of those recently. My only though so far would be an antipata platter I can jsut assemble and a nice shrimp scampi....but I'm not set on that by any means.

Help me out guys! I'd like to stop at the store on my way home in a few hours.

They will eat just about everything. But I live in a rural area, so I won't be able to get to a "Gourmet" grocery store. Just my local one - so the recipe can't call for anything to crazy that I won't be able to find.
