      I'm having a party this weekend and here's the menu:
      Meatballs
      Hot Brown sliders
      Mac&cheese
      Meat free baked beans
      There will also be deviled eggs, veggies/chips and dip, macaroni salad and desserts.

      I don't know any vegans but a couple vegetarians are coming so this menu should give everyone a chance to eat.

        Gotta ask what a hot brown slider is. Have to say it doesn't sound appealing, at all.

          S1969, Hot Browns are open faced sandwiches with turkey, bacon, tomato and cheese sauce.

          They are delicious!

          They're one of the traditional foods associated with the Kentucky Derby. I'm just modifying them into slider form so they're easier to handle at a picnic.

          But they could use a better name.

              Should only vegetables be served?

              I'm not sure if there is going to be riding before dinner, or after, or both, but IME meatatarians and vegetarians ride happily together. So, will vegetarians come to the dinner?

              What is the proper protocol? Should they just show up, bringing their own covered dish vegetable dishes?

              Should they ask other people first whether or not this is proper protocol?

              And then, about the vegans ...

              A gracious host considers the feelings of ALL their guests. So a variety would be most appropriate. If one or more people refuse to attend because of some item being served then that's their business and their loss.

                She doesn’t KNOW any vegans. So unless they crash the party, they’re not coming...

                  I do most of my entertaining when the garden is in, so I always serve fresh sliced tomatoes, or a cucumber and tomato salad, along with a lot of grilled veggies - eggplant, zucchini and squash. (I dearly love caprese salad, for vegans, just eliminate the mozzarella.) Mac and cheese is a staple for vegetarians, but not for vegans; but you can do a summer pasta salad without dairy that would be filling. I also love doing roast potatoes and roast sweet potatoes with olive oil, and they are always popular with omnivores/vegetarians/vegans alike.

                  I am happy to accommodate any and all food preferences and diets, under one condition: no one who is a guest better roll an eye or lecture me as I enjoy my home raised, grass feed, marinated London Broil, seared on the grill and eaten medium rare. (As all right thinking people eat beef.)

                  Oh, and I'm probably gonna have an ear of fresh white corn on the cob, grilled in the husk and slathered in real butter, and I don't want to hear any muttering from the vegan guests about that, either.
                  The plural of anecdote is not data.

                    I eat some vegetables but I don't really like most, and I'm not a huge fan of salads. Honestly I like the whole having options where toppings can be added, or have some meat options and some vegetarian options. That or do a potluck. If people are offended that there is meat around...well, honestly, how the heck do you get by in day to day life if you get that offended over the presence of meat? Just suck it up and deal like everyone else does with things they don't like.

                      Just saw this on a friends feed on the book of faces...


                      I wish I still had a picture of the one complaining that there aren’t enough meat-free menu items because she came with a friend that’s a veterinarian.

                      It took several readings between a couple people to realize she meant vegetarian.

                          Not sure why people keep mentioning that vegans attending the party would be offended if meat and dairy would be served??? Did you have experiences with vegans being offended???
                          I for sure would not be... I was a non smoker all my life and had to stand in a group with heavily smoking people in my youth because otherwise I would have been pretty lonesome .
                          But I am not sure if I would be a bit offended if a friend would invite me to a party and not care at all about my food preferences... then he really wouldn’t need to invite me if is interest is so low.. and really this is not my experience with my friends at all!! They care more about what I could eat then I do. .. i am always humbled by them!!!

                            This was a spinoff of the COTH menu post. It is meant to be light hearted... not serious and real "we just can't get along so deal with it" opinions. I don't give a hoot if you are a vegan, pescatarian, vegetarian, omnivore, etc etc. I'll serve the normal at any of my (few) parties which includes BBQ meat, make your own salad options, definitely vegetables of some sort, chips, etc. My best friends niece is allergic to dairy and a few other things so we are mindful of options when she is in town BUT the parents also make sure to bring things they know she can eat just in case. If you have dietary preferences/needs (ie: I am incredibly picky) then just ask what dish types are needed (main, side, veggie, etc) and bring your own that you KNOW you can eat. Don't expect the host to overhaul the entire meal for you. If you have allergies for sure let the host know, but also tell them that you can bring dishes (explain what) since that is usually going to be easier anyways and ensures you avoid cross contamination. As a teen, when I went in my chicken-only phase I'd bring chicken to every family holiday because they'd only eat ham and turkey. When I went through a vegetarian phase I brought a few things to tide me over and made enough that others could try it (even though I knew they wouldn't touch my mashed cauliflower). Pretty simple.

                              I did what I thought was the "smart" thing and specifically asked anyone I wasn't sure about what their meat eating preferences were.
                              As far as I know my beans would be vegan because all they contain are a bunch of different beans, onions, ketchup, mustard and brown sugar.

                              Plus, I wouldn't be one bit offended if someone had a particular food issue and chose to bring their own grub.
