    The last couple times I had the girlies over, I made chicken noodle soup and beef veggie soup.  It was served with crusty warm bread and butter and a sinfully rich dessert.

    I'd serve a first course of mixed greens salad topped with fresh homemade croutons using San Francisco sourdough bread & choice of dressings. Next Old-Fashioned Chicken ala King in Patty Shells served with honey-glazed carrots. 

    Sooooo many choices for dessert........takes some more thought......Chocolate Mousse?  A chilled Fresh Lemon Souffle?     oh dear...

    Let us know what you decide?

    I've done soup, green salad, and fruit salad or something like a mound of chicken salad, a fruit salad and a pasta salad. I usually have some kind of smallish muffins with it. For dessert I've had crepes with a chocolate mousse inside and the easiest - a good nut bread with sliced strawberries and whip cream.

    If I know what the occasion is I can have a better idea of what I would serve.

    I have done John's Taco Salad for my bunco group of 12 ladies and it got rave reviews, just like the reviews it has received here on the recipe board. I made the salads in individual flat bowls.  I would double or triple the recipe for 12 ladies. 


    John's Taco Salad

    1 lb. ground beef
    chopped onion
    1 envelope taco seasoning (plus water called for on pkg)
    1 can enchilada sauce
    Catalina salad dressing (Use enchilada sauce can to measure equal amount of Catalina )
    3-4 c. romaine lettuce, chopped
    3-4 c. iceberg lettuce, chopped
    Nacho Cheese Doritos (have to be Doritos)
    shredded colby/jack cheese
    chopped onion
    chopped tomato
    sliced black olives

    brown beef w/ some chopped onion. drain and add taco seasoning & water. Make as pkg directs.

    In a bowl layer romaine & iceberg lettuce, seasoned beef, chopped onion, tomato, sliced black olives, doritos and shredded cheese. Mix equal parts of enchilada sauce and Catalina dressing.   Serve w/ dressing/sauce ladeled over it.
