I'm having a thematic dinner party for 12 in honor of Don't Step On A Bee Day (July 10.) The theme is honey. I think I'm going to make BBQ honey chicken for dinner -- and carve up honeydew, too. But if you have any honey-themed recipes that are amazing -- or know of any honey/bee songs to play during dinner, please share them here. [more inside]

I recently heard a story about a party for an airline pilots union in New Orleans that was slated for the evening of September 11th. The restaurant canceled the event because of the tragedies that day, and the union tried to sue for breach of contract, but eventually abandoned it from the threat from the restaurant of going public. I can't find anything about it online. Anybody heard of this story and have a link? Or is this an urban legend? I haven't found anything on snopes.

I'm organizing a monthly event where I will be feeding appetizers to up to 100 people. I'm a good cook, who will have much of the food pre-prepared. Unfortunately, I have a negligible budget. I need what is prepared to be tasty and diverse crowd pleasers, using ingredients that are as inexpensive as possible -- possibly available in bulk -- while still containing some protein. Carbs should be fairly healthy, unrefined, inexpensive ones. There can be some items made with flour, but not to excess. There will also need to be vegetarian dishes. Extra points for food that can be frozen and prepared as needed. I am a good cook, have a wide variety of spices, etc., rice for basmati and sushi. I also have good access to Indian, Asian, and Mexican supermarkets. I'm fine with doing extensive cooking in advance, so long as what I have is both affordable and easy-to-serve on the night of the event. Any ideas / recipes?
Please help me come up with fun party foods, hors d'oeuvres, and other snacky/easy to eat recipes that are low carb (and mostly vegetarian) and are good for entertaining! [more inside]
