Spring dinner party menu

mrsgreer | Mar 22, 2010 08:29 AM

I am looking for feedback on my spring dinner party menu.
so far, I plan to serve
Cream of Asparagus soup,
Napa cabbage & Shrimp spring rolls,
baby spinach & Strawberry salad with poppy seed dressing
Cornish hens??? either stuffed with apricot & wild rice stuffing, or this recipe: http://find.myrecipes.com/recipes/rec... which is morroccan roasted.
Dessert: Creme brulee.

My husband is concerned our guests may not feel comfortable picking over cornish hens at the table. I wanted to choose a main course which is spring-y, however not all people like lamb or veal which are the obvious spring fare posted all over anything food & spring. I am also unsure if everyone likes fish.
Suggestions on the hens, or maybe a beef dish????
Any other comments/suggestions on my menu appreciated!!
I should note that we will be serving 8 confirmed, possibly 12 total.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
