- Wedding: February 2012
It’s my birthday next week, and am having a few friends over to celebrate. I am the cook of our group and I love entertaining so I’m quite excited. Anyway, living in Greece, you knida get bored eating Greek food all the time and sometimes want something different (I went the british route the last couple of times and Roast Dinner is a bit to time-consuming and tiring now I’m getting on with my pregnancy). So I was debating, Indian, Thai or Chinese, but the ingridients are really hard to come by, and I don’t want to use sauces from jars because of the extremely high salt/sugar content which my cardiologist has warned me to watch out for. So looking at the available ingridients we have here, I think the closest “match” would be a mexican/southern style dinner party.
Now for the next problem. Fish and any seafood is out completely (one of the girls has a severe allergy), and I need some really great vegetarian options as another is vegetarian. I don’t want to go totally vegetarian because Darling Husband would have a cow if we had a dinner party without a meal (and a couple of the other guys would as well lol).
So lovely ladies, please give me some fool-proof recipes to help me on my way!
I have a great recipe for sticky chiken wings which I’ll be making, but would love some more ideas. It’s going to be quite casual with everything in the middle and plates passed around.
