    BBQ all day, and I’m not even a big fan of BBQ.

    Phew, these sound delish, but heavy. I opted for menu 2 only because I like the “healthier” options available, and menu 1 has like no veggies. Either way, both sound too good for words!

    I would prefer menu 1, with a garden salad instead of the broccoli casserole. All of the sides are pretty heavy so I would prefer a healthier one (I love mac & cheese too!).

    I voted menu 2. I like the variety and the healthy salad option.

    I’m a little bit confused by the “smoked salmon” because that often means the salted/preserved salmon that some ppl would still consider raw-seeming that goes on bagels, etc., but I’m guessing your salmon is cooked fish that’s served as an entree?  (this might be a NY to KY translation issue 😉 )  If the smoked salmon is just cooked salmon (put in a smoker like other meats), then I vote for menu 1, hands down.  Screw the salad, go with sides that are actually good.


    This might also be a regional thing, but I never thought of beef stroganoff as southern, so that seems out of place on menu 2.  Beef stroganoff and catfish both sound good, but they don’t seem to go together on the same menu well.  Not sure if others agree.

    The BBQ menu sounds much better to me!

    I picked Menu 1 as I love smoked salmon & broccoli – however, as a person that’s not that huge a fan of heavy dishes, I would miss salad as a side. Not sure if that applies to your guests as well, but if you think some of them might be on a diet/can’t digest large amounts of starch or cheese, it might be a good thing to add.

    I voted for 1. It sounds so yummy.

    I voted #1, but I do have to admit, 3 carbs is an awful lot.  I would switch out one of the carbs for the salad. 


    Since the mac and cheese is awesome, I would keep that.  I also like having a bread side people can just grab, so I’d leave the biscuits.  I’d eliminate the mashed potatoes and add salad.  2 carbs, 2 meats, and 2 vegetable dishes seem a little more balanced.


    With that switch, I’d eat everything on your menu!

    I picked option 1. I don’t eat red meat and I dislike fried foods, so I would definitely be disappointed with those two choices! Having said that, you definitely need a lighter component for your meal. I’m sure te BBQ place can add a simple toss salad for freshness!

    @vermonster:  +1

    I generally like menu 1, but would like one lighter side. I would love a salad to balance out the mac & cheese and the mashed potatoes.
