in a funk...hosting a dinner friday night

coco puff | Nov 5, 2008 07:57 PM

my brain is fried...just got home from work...my husband and I are hosting a dinner...there will ONLY be the 4 of us...but I guess I'm thinking too much about the menu.

I won't get home til 6pm Friday and we've invited them over for 7:30.

One doesn't eat cheese, the other doesn't eat fish...

I was thinking of bbq'ing some filet mignon, a starchy side, some veggies and a salad...but is this too boring? what about a sauce for the filet? I know it doesn't really need one..

we'll be drinking some awesome red wine and finishing off w/muscato from napa valley.

I need to be able to prepare most of the menu tomorrow night...

please, any suggestions for a menu, etc.. would be sooo greatly appreciated.

I do want it to be a lovely dinner, but not over the top...no time for it.
thanks so much :)
