It's cliche -- as the lady of the house, I get to cook a whole meal for the poker night crew of dudes and then not get to eat it. It has to be the standard fare -- chili, pork bbq, pizza, etc. Nothing interesting. And it's a Friday during lent and that matters to this crowd (I got in trouble last year for white chicken chili). Ideas? I'm at a loss this time and am having a hard time getting inspired. And yes, I could just have them order pizza, but as someone who loves to cook, I really don't like to do that. Help picklers!
