So I got invivted to a friend's house this weekend, and he wants us to cook some elaborate dinner from scratch (we both cook/bake for each other often, but never have together -- whatever.. ) Anyway.. any ideas about what we could make easily enough completely from scratch? Like, I'm not talking about boiling boxed pasta and pouring canned sauce on it. I already thought about homemade pasta and sauce, or chili, but I need more (non-meat) ideas. We already have dessert figured out. Thanks!
