Sides for Beef Bourguignon - Little Jfood Needs

jfood | Dec 2, 2007 07:07 AM

So little jfood sprung a good one on jfood the other night.

"Dad, I invited 12 of my colleagues from work over for dinner next Tuesday and they want you Beef Bourguignon." Jfood's response, "That's fine but I have a client dinner, so it's you and your mom on duty."

So jfood just placed more Beef Bourguignon in the oven than he has ever seen after three hours of prep. Mrs. Jfood wonders over and says, "So what are we preparing for sides."

First idea was roasted potatoes (little jfood wants deperately). She's also decided on a salad with gorg, walnuts and pear with a balsamic vinaigrette. Dessert is a chocolate terrine (mrs jfood specialty) with creme anglais (jfood will make monday night and into the fridge).

Now the question is:

Anything else a 22-year old might pull off with reasonably skills in the kitchen for 13-people sides?
