Guy proof recipes

I'm throwing a small surprise 50th birthday BBQ potluck party and a majority of the guests will be guys. I mean, we are talking 40 guys and probably four women.

The things the guys are offering to bring are:

booze
desserts



I'm supplying the meat and the booze already as well as airfare for those coming from out of town.

I asked one guy to bring a warm vegetable dish and his text in reply was: "And what would that be? Lol"



I just need some suggestions on what to tell these guys to bring that they can actually make without too much fuss. Something edible and not just finger food.

Please help. The party is this Sat.

Salad - there are prepackaged bags with all of the ingredients, including dressing
Corn on the cob - can be microwaved or grilled
Garlic bread or breadsticks
Spanish rice or wild rice - Uncle Ben's makes microwaveable packages
Roasted veggies - chop up fresh veggies (or buy frozen pre-cut), toss with olive oil, salt & pepper, roast at 450 F for 40-50 minutes, stirring 2-3 times

Pre- order from Whole Foods and make them pick them up and pay for them. Warn the guys not to veer from the order, or else (then show them your knives).

Other non cooking stuff. Chips, Soda, chip dip, desserts, Ice cream etc. Sometimes I go to the store and buy a finished cake or pie.

That's all I could handle.

Throw a pork loin in a crock pot with half a two liter of root beer. Cook for 8 hours, pour off the root beer, shred the pork with 2 forks, add bbq sauce to taste, done. Guy proof.

Guys can usually manage baked potatos or buying potatosalad or cole slaw at the local market.

a platter of sliced tomatos with capers & olives sprinkled with balsamic vinegrette is an easy vegie dish

Pasta salad isn't hard to make either. Cook some pasta, slice up some black olives, carrots, broccoli, whatever, toss with itallian dressing. Sure you can make it better, but that's quick and dirty. Also rolls from the bakery. Can't have too many good doughy rolls.

Chili. Guys love to make chili, it's easy to transport (unless they're flying), easy to serve, and most of us like it. You'll probably end up with more meat in it than you're looking for, but I bet you'd get fewer blank looks if you asked for chili instead of veggies. Leftovers shouldn't be a problem either, just like leftover beer or pizza.

I say whatever they can get at the local deli - of course the food will be awful. Best to tell guys to bring chips... well that's about it. If someone is a foodie and can cook, then they can bring something nice. Asking any guy to bring a "warm vegetable dish" is like asking me to tune a bike... ain't going to happen!
