My Mom is hosting a pool party at our place next weekend and it is a very interesting mix of diets. It is mainly adults. We are celebrating DH and I both finishing Master's Degrees earlier this year (this is the first free weekend for my family all summer due to weddings and anniversaries). I'm doing the cooking because she does not fully understand what a "Gluten Free Diet" means and I don't want to become deathly ill. I can't do Gluten. DH is a Vegetarian and there may be more coming. One of the guests is lactose intolerant. I have everything pretty well set except for desert.
Chips, Veggies, and Cucumber Dip
Tortilla Chips with Salsa or Homemade Guacamole
Mesquite Lime Pulled Beef Wraps in White Corn Tortillas
Black Bean Wraps in White Corn Tortillas
Corn on the Cob
Green Salad w/ Vinaigrette (love a great recipe for this too!)
Chilled Cantaloupe Soup
Condiments for Wraps:
Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies
Gluten Free Lemon Cake with Strawberry Filling
I want to do homemade sorbets to accompany the cake. I was thinking of the "Alton Brown Watermelon Vodka Sorbet." I need a suggestion for a second sorbet without alcohol.
I am trying to do the entire menu not to direct attention to dietary restrictions. I want to give a lot of options since this is an all day affair starting at lunch time and don't want guests to have to eat the same thing for two meals.
