Dinner Party

And by "dinner party" I mean a couple friends coming over to play Wii to whom I promised a home made meal.

Now some of you will know this and some of you won't but I am a vegetarian. I feel fairly competent at making food that I enjoy but when serving people who eat meat normally it can be slightly intimidating to create a meal they will enjoy. Here's where you come in. I need you to tell me which of the following sounds most delicious. Whatever gets the most votes will be what I make this Thursday. I may even take some photos.

Option 1:
Pasta shells stuffed with ricotta, cauliflower, carrots, zucchini, spinach, and broccoli topped with a spicy roasted red pepper tomato sauce and mozzarella served with mixed greens salad with goat cheese, zante currants, and pumpkin seeds tossed with a honey vinaigrette and a side of garlic sauteed green beans.

Option 2:
Gorgonzola polenta cakes topped with caramelized onions and arugula tossed in a honey pepper vinaigrette served with sauteed zucchini and squash rounds and a Greek style spinach salad with feta, kalamata olives, and cucumber.

Option 3:
Black bean, cheddar, zucchini, black olive, tomato, mushroom, spinach, stuffed enchiladas served with a cucumber, tomato, cilantro, corn salad and a lime soaked watermelon, cantaloupe, honeydew, pineapple fruit salad sprinkled with chile pepper.

Cast your vote.


  1. I am going to pick two or three, as those are the recipes I would most like to have.

    How's that cookbook coming along?

  2. Those ALL sound pretty amazing to me! You can invite me over for dinner and Wii any night of the week :)

  3. I vote the first one, but I'm vegetarian too so I'm not sure my vote helps much :)

  4. I would rank them:
    Option 2
    Option 3
    Option 1

  5. I would choose 1, though all sound delish!
