In my infinite wisdom, I decided to have a BBQ the day after we get back from vacation. (O.K. my husband was supposed to throw it for me because it's my birthday celebration, but that's a whole different rant) Seeing that we will be gone the week befor the party, return Friday morning, party Saturday, I am in a food panic. Does not have to be anything fancy, just easy, quick, and relatively cost effective. So far we have 27 adults and 21 kids, but due to the lack of manners in responding, could have up to 25 or so more.
I am thinking basic bbq food- burgers, hot dogs, big pot of turkey chili (especially for the hot dogs) which could be done in a crockpot, salads, fruit, some type of veggies, but what else? Also if you have any recipes for above items, or othetrs, please feel free to contibute.
Don't let me down chowhounders, I can't go on vacation in a birthday party panic!!!
