Fall Dinner Party for 8--Menu Suggestions?

mrs lilo | Sep 15, 2009 04:03 PM

I am hosting a dinner party (birthday party) dinner for 6 adults and two kids in about a month and looking for menu suggestions.

My only concern is that I would like to either have a main dish I can make ahead or something I can grill (weather permitting). I love to cook, and usually take on too much, which makes my mother nervous. :) I would like at least the main dish, if not sides, to be things I can make ahead. However, I'm not ruling out the grill, since my father or another male relative usually takes the reins.

Also, I also would like to make use of my (growing) cookbook collection. If you have any suggestions from a favorite cookbook, I would love to hear about it. I have all the Barefoot Cookbooks, Sunday Suppers, plus many others. And if I don't have it, I will probably go get it or check it out of the library!

Thanks, can't wait for your suggestions.
