I'm having some friends over for dinner before we're going to see Gillian Welch in concert here in Amsterdam (so excited!)
I want to make something that somehow fits the 'mood' of the evening. My first thought was biscuits and fried chicken, then I found out they are vegetarians. Not that that is a problem, I love cooking vegetarian food, but I do find it more difficult to think of things to make for this dinner that don't involve meat...
Other issues: these are 'new' friends that have never been to dinner at my house and I want to impress them just a litle bit... and, because we have to leave the house at 8 to get to the show, we won't have time for a relaxed multi-course dinner. So it has to be fairly simple food that I can mostly prepare ahead.
Any thoughts what I could make to wow my friends and get us all in the mood for an evening of great music?
