  • Why not grill steak and chicken and have a taco bar? Marinate the meat in lime juice, cilantro, cumin, red pepper, and garlic.

    Server tortillas, shredded cheese, sour cream, salsa, pico de gallo, and lettuce, tomato and guac.

    Make some spanish rice, and serve fresh fruit for dessert. You may want to get tortilla chips as well.

  • You sound like me. I hate picnic food. How about a salad made with spinach, peppers, onion, celery, carrots, a couple apples and mandarin oranges. Then a good couple dressings, like poppyseed or sweet and sour.

  • Hmmm, what is on your regular menu?

    What about a cucumber salad? I just made one using cucumber slices, onion and bell pepper slices, cider vinegar and sugar. It's yummy.

  • Someone mentioned bbq meatloaf in a question of mine recently. I bet that would be good if you wanted to bring a meat dish.

  • I love pizza done on the grill.....yummy! I've also done meatloaf on the grill before just make sure that it's not too thick or it will burn the outside before the inside gets cooked.

  • I love this salad...orzo pasta (cooked in chicken broth), chick peas, grape tomatoes, finely chopped red onion, chopped mint and chopped basil. Top with wine vinegar, olive oil, honey, lemon juice. Yum!!!
