I'm in the preliminary stages planning a dinner for 6 female friends. It's at my house so I'll be making the main dish. I'm thinking paella - I've never made it for this bunch and I do a mean one. Others will be bringing the other courses. What might I suggest to go along with it?
An appetizer, salad, side dish, dessert. Bread can be someone's contribution if they don't feel like cooking. These are not particularly adventurous cooks, so I can't get too picky. Just want to give folks direction so I don't end up with the same old same olds.
My other thought would be to make a seafood pasta instead, which allows maybe more room for accompaniments.
