thanks all - the bread thingh is a good idea. I have some recipes (and maybe even some packet mixes..... ). I also wimped out and bought frozen veggie sausage rolls. Pakoras and samosas will be amply and much more tastily provided by my neighbours!
I'd have suggested watermelon and feta salad, but you said no cheese. How about lots of nice olives, some bread and some oil and vinegar for dipping? Or some little quiches made in jam tart trays (cheese again) or some vegetarian scotch eggs, if you're up for a bit of faffing. Or some hoummus, tsatziki, maybe an aubergine dip, and pitta bread?
we are having a street party tomorrow and I had been planning to bring my famous potato salad but I'm worried about it being sat outside all day on the hottest day of the year! Any ideas of what would be good to take along - was thinking cheese straws but I need some other ideas too - nothing with mayonnaise, cheese, cream etc and vegetarian (just to make things more awkward ). Thanks in advance
