    I would do a salad plate. Chicken salad served in a quarter of a sliced pineapple, broccolli salad, carrot salad. Then do a light dessert like chocolate pudding w/ suagr cookie. All home made.

    I made tiny little chicken salad sandwiches made with red grapes, toasted almonds, dill and poppyseeds. Everyone liked the chicken salad. I served grapes and angelfood cake for dessert. I made a fruit punch and Crystal Light Appletini.
    Blessed are the quilters, for they are the piecemakers.

    I have had success with little cream puffs filled with chicken salad (try making chicken salad with a roasted chicken from the market yumm) also little cucumber sandwiches made with the small deli rye loaf the approx. 2X2 inch pieces topped with a thin sliced cucumber (cut the cuke skin with little "Vs" for decoration) use a dill spread. These are an open faced sandwich. Have a nice veggie try and put the dips in big Red, Yellow, Green cored sweet peppers, cut a little off the bottom so the pepper sits upright without tipping. Hope you have a good time, these are fun.

    I just did a luncheon for my girls and made Turkey Waldorf sandwiches, (go to Cooks.com and put that in). They loved them especially on the raisen bread. Also made a cauliflour soup. i.e soup and salad

    I did crab mornay served over/in puff pastry shells and a fruit salad for a luncheon, with a choice of pies for dessert. It was a hit--but the crab mornay is a bit expensive if you are having to make enough for a large group.
