    What about something from the deli of a grocery store? Ive seen pretty good appetizer and full meal 'fixins' from the Publix deli. Either serve cold or reheat in the oven if need be.

    Do you have a quiche plate? Quiche can be made tonight with simple ingredients and served at room temperature tomorrow.

    Good call, Publix for the win!

    That is pretty foodie... I was going to suggest Flakowitz which is good but not particularly foodie good. Might be worth a stop to fill out the menu a little.

    Serve strong alcohol early. Food won't matter as much then!
    Cheers, TD.

    they only have 2 hrs & then are flying-didn't want too heavy of a meal-they are kentuckian hardboots, maybe unlimited makers & forget the food!

    Brown a pound of hamburger, and a pound of pork sausage. Drop it into a crock-pot with a block of Velveta and a can of Rotel. Serve with corn chips.

    Ouch! My chest! Why is my left arm numb?

    But seriously...

    How about servining local goodies?

    Order a bunch of Cuban sandwiches from the local place. Maybe a batch of Paella? Serve with some shrimp cocktail, and some Mojitos?

    Maybe some kind of local ice cream for dessert?
