    Dinner party ideas needed

    My new years resolution this year was to spend more face time with family and friends. We now host a monthly (Last Saturday) dinner at our house and invite pretty much everyone we know in the area. It's been a great success and I spend more time with these great people between events because we plan to get together while they are here. The guest count has tapered off to about 20 people each Saturday and if I share a theme some guests like to bring a dish to share.

    That is the background, here is the question. What themes can you suggest for the dinners? We have done Italian, Spanish Tapas, breakfast and one full on potluck.

    We have numerous cuisine categories here, Kanzeda. I have nearly 200 menus for nearly every area in the US from New England to West Coast and the Upper Midwest to the Gulf Coast. Click on : MY MENUS for some inspiration.

    What about an African-inspired menu:
    Kwanzaa ~ The First Fruits

    P. F. Chang's Chicken Lettuce Wraps
    Egg Drop Soup
    Oriental Chicken Salad with Crunchy Ramen Noodles
    Bourbon Chicken
    Chinese Fried Rice
    Scallion Cake
    Cantaloupe With Honey Ginger Dressing
    Chinese Almond Cookies

    Chicken Sate with Peanut Sauce
    Thai Style Butternut Squash Soup
    My O My.. Best Thai Beef Salad Ever!
    Broiled Tilapia With Thai Coconut- Curry Sauce
    Kao Pad (Thai-Style Fried Rice)
    Thai Noodles With Spicy Peanut Sauce
    Thai Coconut Pudding/ Custard

    Use the recipe sifter for other cuisines/courses...I can see Indian, Indonesian, Vietnamese, English, French, Portugese, Italian, Greek, Swedish, Eastern European, German, Mexican, Hawaiian, Cuban, and South American all working brilliantly for great meals for gatherings. icon_smile.gif
