I am great with menu ideas...for other people. So help me!

Going to a BBQ On Sunday at a friends family's house on Sunday. All the ladies will be watching True Blood later when it comes on ;)

So, I was invited and asked to bring food. I want to do some themed stuff.

Some stipulations:

I won't eat anything off the meaty grill, I am the only veg, and I only know a couple of people there...so no 'weird vegan food'

I think I will bring a nice sangria (I have a great recipe!) and was thinking red velvet cupcakes. Anyone have a good recipe?

Any other ideas? Gazpacho? Salsa? Beet burgers would be soooo good, but yucky grill. Red beans and rice? I do want something substantial to eat too. You guys know how it is, you have to assume there will be zero vegan food.

Anyone else doing this? I love theme nights. Walking dead was always fun!

I did Tea Sandwiches once! In honor of the south. And how Suki serves tea. Maybe stuffed tomatoes, to represent a heart? Maybe stuffed with a lentil beet salad?

There's so much fun stuff on Sam's menu you can veganize, too. Chili, potato salad, gumbo, sausage...

Thanks Guys!

I might do something beety to look bloody. And of course southern stuff is always good.

That blog is FANTASTIC. I might make a new dish...hmmmm

I always do southern food for the True Blood premiere. I've also done red velvet cupcakes with vampire bites (check out VCTOTW for traditional or Vegan Desserts for a non-traditional "black velvet"). This is a non-vegan pic, I assume, but it shows you what the vampire bites look like. Very simple to do. http://cupcakestakethecake.blogspot.com/2011/10/halloween-vampire-bite-and-pumpkin.html

If you'd like to use the grill, how about cooking in foil packets so that your food doesn't touch?

I like the gumbo idea, or jambalaya would be great. And of course cupcakes! I'm celebrating father's day with my family that day so I won't have time to cook anything special and vampy, I think it's really fun that you're doing this!

I immediately went to that pie from season 2 that Tara and Egg ate that was made from human hearts, I think? Vegan version would maybe be a beet-based pot pie. I dunno, I'm not great at this stuff! :)

Yep, I am ok with food that does not touch the grill. I like to do potatoes, red peppers, onions, garlic and rosemary from my garden all sliced up and put on foil and grilled. Very cheap and very yum.

I do have VCTOTW thank goodness. I will check it out

A beet/heart pie would be awesome! but beyond my culinary prowess.

Anything with blood oranges would be appropriate, even if you just bring a sack of them!

Maybe I should just bring (vegan) hot dogs and tacos...to represent all the sexytimes in the show. The show can get pretty raunchy.
