Following are a some menu plans for a dinner party. The dishes can mostly be made in advance and either baked or re-heated after your guests arrive (leaving you time to enjoy their company.) These delicious and elegant dishes should appeal to your vegetarian and omnivore friends. There are, of course, many other recipes appropriate for a dinner party on our Complete Recipe Index

Menu Plan 1:

The "Beef Wellington" can be prepared ahead and be ready to put in the oven when your guests arrive. The potatoes can be cooked while the "Beef Wellington" is baking. The appetizer, salad and dessert can be prepared well in advance.

Menu Plan 2:
The cashew nut roast can be made up to a week in advance and frozen. After baking, let it cool to room temperature and then slice it into serving pieces. Place the slices onto a sheet pan, cover well and freeze. On the day of your party, leave them on the sheet pan to defrost and then place in the oven to warm. The soft rolls can be made well in advance and refrigerated.The other dishes can also be made ahead and re-heated.

Menu Plan 3:

The bruschetta, Caesar Salad and lasagna can be made in advance (keep the lasagna warm.) Mix the dressing with the salad just before serving. Also, assemble the strawberry shortcake just before serving.
