Need recipes that dirty every dish in the house

I just got my first-ever dishwasher (yippee!) and I want to celebrate by cooking. A lot. With all my dishes and utensils. I want to be messy and recklessly extravagant, dirty-dish-wise.
After four decades of washing dishes by hand, not to mention choosing recipes based on how few bowls, pans, and utensils they use, I want to make something that will dirty every dish in the house except the rice cooker (the insert is aluminium and can't go in the dishwasher).
What are your favorite recipes that use a lot of dishes?
something that requires breading is good, because you need a plate for the flour mixed with S&P, a plate for the bread crumbs (maybe mixed with parmesan cheese) and a bowl of egg wash - so breaded chicken or veal or eggplant that is then pan fried would be good.
Baking's good, too. I suggest a multi-layer lemon cake with some sort meringue-y topping. Right off the top, I see multiple mixing bowls, cooking racks, measuring spoons, measuring cups, whisks, staging bowls, a zester/microplane, baking pans, serrated knives, spatulas, mixing spoons, and an egg separator (if you're fancy).
Plus the backsplash if you're not careful with the mixer and the powdered sugar.
First of all, Congratulations! Very happy for you!
I do not offer a recipe but a suggestion. I dirty up the most dishes when I cook a few different meals at once in order to fill the freezer. I cook like mad for the better part of a day and make one heck of a mess, but it is so great to have frozen meals on the ready.
Have fun doing dishes tonight. I know you will. :)
had to laugh at LizAtl offering her husband because my first thought upon reading your post was that you didn't need a recipe, you needed only to have my kids over.
