I am at a loss. I do not want to serve any land-based animal dishes and the water-based animals that I like to eat are too expensive to entertain a group. If it were winter I would do something along the lines of lasagna or spaghetti but neither is calling to me on these 70-ish degree days. I need something that will be festive, appeal to both carnivores and vegetarians, not be too adventurous for my comfort-craving company and not break the bank. To further narrow the choices, no kale/collards/Brussels sprouts/amaranth need apply. I suppose a paella or risotto could fill the bill but, eh, BTDT. Is there any hope for me?
