barbeque? - sausages and ribs n stuff? like MS's home made pizza, salads etc idea. our other great cop-out is a cooked chicken, a load of pasta salads, green salad, cherry tomatoes, dips etc and crusty bread, coleslaw. Doesn't cost a fortune to do and feeds loads of people
Fajitas? Big bowls of spicy chicken or beef, onions, etc, different bowl for the veggies with courgettes, onions, peppers etc, loads of tortillas, grated cheese, sour cream, gucamole and so on. It always goes down well in our house and you can make your own seasoning - I'll give you the recipe if you like.
