On Thursday I was be having a dinner party at my new apartment with 5 people and this will be first time cooking for a group indoors other than my family. I am pretty much at a loss as far as the menu - all I know is that I would like to stay away from ethnic food since I do not have much experience preparing it. I am in Boston and not completely sure about what veggies are in season here right now. I would like to serve 1 appetizer (possibly an antipasto plate) a main dish (considering pork or chicken) with a starch and veggie side. I am on a fairly tight budget but might be willing to splurge for the right item. It is very cold here right now so the grill is not an option. Any suggestions or direction would be very helpful!
