Day 12: Meal plans for Andrew's birthday

We're inviting both of our families for Andrew's birthday at the end of the month. Likely there will be about 15 people coming.

There are a number of food restrictions:
  • no lactose
  • no peppers
  • no pineapple
  • vegetarian options are required
There are also food preferences:
  • non-fruit options
  • no mushrooms/onions/peas
  • no white flour/bread/crackers

This makes it seem like our families are really picky and maybe that has some truth to it, but mostly I just want to make sure that what I make or people bring will be liked by everyone. For this occasion it's especially important that Andrew eats what he likes.

So I think I've come up with a menu that should please most people and definitely will make Andrew happy .

Punch/Wine

Appetizers:
-veggies and dip
-crab dip
-shrimp ring

Dinner:
-BBQ chicken (will have to come up with a veg-friendly option)
-plain salad with raspberry vinaigrette and apples, walnuts, feta, and bacon on the side
-non-dairy mashed pototatoes
-asparagus

Dessert:
-non-dairy apple crisp with vanilla ice cream optional (or the crisp can be optional)
