Small numbers.. buddy just bought a house .. he wants to have me over to see it. I said I'd bring something.. lately I've been on a kick with making basil pesto.. but while it's been a huge hit I'm kind of tired of the same thing. Any suggestions on an informal side dish that still has a pop and wow effect? It may just be my male side showing through, but I hate bringing things that "out-do" the other things at the party usually by women. It's like wearing a tux to a casual get together.. awkward for sure. This is just a general group.. so something more mainstream with a little kick would be great.
