i'm needing a little help guys. my son turns one on tuesday and i'm having family members over. probably 12-14 people total. i'm getting off a half a day monday to prepare food for the following day. i was going to do pulled beef and wings, but i don't really have time to do an eight hour cook.

i'm thinking i have six hours tops after i go shopping to get it done.

i'm good on sides (potato salad, green salad, something else) and i'm going to do wings, but i need a "main course"

any suggestions and/or links are appreciated.

thanks in advance.

    I can't think of much that goes better than Pizza and wings. Pizza, is a quick cook and pretty much everyone likes it.

    i'm needing to have my food cooked the day before the party. i have to work the day of the party and only have an hour after work before guests arrive.

    Wings are better hot off the egg, but you can precook them and re-heat in a crock pot. :)
