Your menu sounds great. Tons of options to please everybody.

As a guest in someone's home, I am grateful and appreciative to whatever is served.

While I wouldn't be thrilled cooking ground beef, I'd do it if most felt it would be a disappointing meal without it.
Sounds delicious!!

I'd be fine with that. I actually like meatless meals every now and then. I would not want a meat substitute though.

Or, would I not be invited since I am a woman tennis player? Are any of your guests female and cute? Bad hair is OK, I can fix that.

I am a meat eater and eat SEVERAL meals a week with no meat in them- I would venture out to say LOTS of meat eaters eat plenty of meals without any actual meat in them! Besides, you are nice enough to invite them over, I am sure they will be happy with anything they are served. And if not, they can grab Burger King later lol. The meal you have planned sounds delicious by the way!

One actually does play tennis! But DH will be home so does that even things out or do you think I will still have impure thoughts?

Yes, I'm a meat eater and I would totally be offended if you didn't serve me meat, because as a meat eater I need meat with every single meal. Meat wrapped in a meaty meat wrap! Mmm, meat!


Just kidding. Seriously though, your meal sounds delicious and I can't imagine anyone getting offended over having to partake in one meatless meal. Being a meat eater isn't the same as being a vegetarian. We don't need to eat it all the time, and if someone can't deal with that, well then I don't know what to say. Enjoy your yummy lunch. Wish I was invited.

I think he should keep his eye on you!! Better be clear in the invitation: NO cute little tennis skirts.

I think it would depend on your friends and their attitudes.

I have seen some pretty picky people on threads here, mainly vegetarians (not the OP at all) who will make snide comments on a prospective menu like "well, all I would be able to eat would be the salad" and then rant that hosts/hostesses never take their needs into account. There are equally rude and entitled meat eaters around that would gripe if they didn't get their meat.

Since they are your friends, they probably aren't the rude sort. However, if you think they may be insulted without their meat, then I would make a little pan of meat sauce.

But, I don't see it necessary as your menu sounds very filling and satisfying.

We have some friends who make a really good vegetarian enchilada dish with so much stuff in them that it's hard to tell that there's no meat in it. It's delicious, and I need to get that recipe from them. It may have cheese in it; I can't remember.
I totally agree. I could be a vegetarian, at least for a while, but there's no way I could be a vegan. I'm the woman who gets a cheese plate instead of dessert.

OP, the only thing I would worry about is making sure you have all food allergies and dietary restrictions taken care of. Never forget the dinner party where I had lactose-intollerant, nut free, and low protein dietary requirements to meet--interesting times!

That lunch sounds great. Meat eaters don't always need a meal that includes meat.

wouldn't faze me in the least. Just because I eat meat doesn't mean I need to have it at every meal.
