  1. What type of kabobs? Lamb? Are you looking for Middle Eastern recipes?

      mix of lamb, beef, chix. greek or mid east or any thing that works. already planning on some hummus, pita, babbaganoush. maybe a greek salad, or a cuke and tomato medley

      1. re: stymie

        I'm gonna overrule the couscous because, as much as I love it, you have hummus and pita for starch. I'd do a good yogurt/feta sauce and grill some zucchini and yellow squash and cherry tomatoes and that feta sauce will be great with the meat, as well. Throw in your cuke/tomato and you've got a great meal - one of my favorites for entertaining, because it's so relaxed and casual as you all dig in.

    2. what about an herb rice pilaf.

        1. Roasted lemon potatoes
          Isreali couscous salad
          Grilled corn
          Fattoush salad

          1. Great that you are serving with pita, hummus, babaganoush. Grilled hot peppers and onions are usually good. Tabouli and tzatziki are a couple of other side dishes you might like.
