Birthday Parties

S/O Meals expected - Help!

  • Oooh I like the idea of mac & cheese, maybe I'll do that and like some oven fried chicken and caesar salad or something...

    I WISH it would be warm enough to grill out; that would make it sooooo much easier!  But we're in northern MD and

  • Baked pasta dishes, mexican or BBQ works for a casual crowd. I would definitely serve a meal if I was inviting people over at that time. I would serve at 5.
