Casual Dining with 5 Guests - What to Make? [moved from San Diego]
I am having 5 neighbors over for a casual dinner. I am looking for suggestions on what to make. Grilling is probably a given. We eat everything. Tasty yet simple is desirable.
Jerk style chicken (grilled) with mashed sweet potatoes and a salad. Beverages of your choosing.
Grilled steaks from Siesel's or grilled fish from Blue Water or Catalina Offshore, paired with brussel sprouts from Sprouts with a fresh lime garlic butter sauce, and fresh baguettes from K-Sandwiches. And a nice complimentary wine from SD Wine on Miramar. Pick up some desserts from Heaven Sent. (This is chocolate month, by the way.)
Be sure to spread a little butter on top of the finished steaks or fish, and if fish, a little half-sharp Hungarian paprika from Penzey's.
