This year, Shavuot falls out on right after Shabbat, so we have a 2-day "chag" of sorts.
I am not planning to cook on Chag - it is way too hot to leave an oven on!
So everything needs to be cooked in advance and either served cold or warmed on a platta.
Here's the plan:
Friday night - we were invited out, but due to my pet allergy, we're providing the table while our guests are bringing the food.
Shabbat lunch, us plus a family of 8:
Homemade Spelt and Oat challot
Oven fried chicken
Quinoa with black lentils
Roasted vegetables (whatever I get a good deal on)
Vegan, GF lasagna
Salmon with lemon and herbs (served cold) (note: I got a great deal on salmon at some point and put it in the freezer!)
Sweet Potato Kugel
Garlic Roasted Potatoes
Desserts: Watermelon, other fruit, chocolate - crispy rice squares
Snacks: banana-coconut cake, popcorn, fruit sorbet, ice cream...
