We are doing soups for one of our gatherings. Supposedly, anyway. Our thoughts were that our other family members probably have several ham or turkey meals and this is an easy thing to make and kind of breaks up the monotony.

Otherwise I think a chicken dinner is nice and not terribly expensive compared to some other foods. I think a beer can chicken on the grill costs me between 5-7 dollars and feeds 4 people.

I also like the shepards pie idea. I love that stuff.

Well shepard's pie and cornish hens got shot down by the wife. Boooo.

She really wants a prime rib, too bad that would cost me about $100 alone just for the meat.

can't believe I didn't think of this before, go to all recipes.com and search for roasted 'red pepper crab soup'. It's also excellent without the crab and very filling. I like to spice it a bit more and add onions and garlic in the mix.

How bout a nice big old batch of chili? It's simple, cheap, and you can scale it to feed a crowd. I make a pretty mean turkey chili with white beans. I add some Belgian Wit and it really enhances the tomatoes and chillies.

You can make a salad to go with it and do some sides & various toppings: rice, bread, cheese, sour cream, pickled chili peppers, cilantro. Make guacamole and/or salsa with chips.

Stuffed pork loin. Lotsa stuffing possibilities - can be swanky or basic. Easy to prep in advance and roast. Won't take all day in the oven.

I do a nice pulled pork, with rice and/or tortilas with a cabbage jicama slaw. Easy to do, easy to eat. Used to do prime rib and ends up eating up the day in prep. Season the pork the night before with a salt/pepper/garlic rub and some liquid smoke. Toss in the slow cooker and do other stuff.

Slow roasted/smoked over hard wood chicken, do a dry rub over and under the skin and inject with apple juice. Keep a small pan of water in the smoker at all times, it will make the skin crispy. Green been casserole, it's cheep and easy, I like Shepard's pie too. jello for the kids. Ask people if they are making a dish?
