I'm planning a surprise party next week for my husband's 40th birthday. There will be 17 people, 5 of whom are vegetarian (not my husband though - he loves a good hunk of meat). I had thought of grilling out, but my DH is the one who always "mans" the grill, and I really hate the thought of being in charge of that myself.
I need it to be something fairly simple that will please a lot of different ages and palates. Several people are coming from out of town, so a potluck is out of the question. I'm just so stumped! Usually I don't have much of a problem planning party menus because DH ALWAYS HELPS ME!
People are arriving my 6 PM, and DH will be home at 6:30. So it needs to be something "dinner-ish", but not necessarily sit-down.

Hi Mia! Any luck yet with a plan?
I was thinking also, that if you decided to go with a Mexican type of thing, I could post thing amazing cake recipe, that happens to be vegan, it's chocolate and cayenne, and then you put a fresh raspberry chipotle sauce on it (Or just strawberries in a chocolate saice over top). It's EASY and amazing.
And I also have this amazing thing that's like a Mexican tiramisu. :
I'll post the recipes if you would like.
