What's a good menu for a Father-Daughter Dance? No Moms, just Dads and their girls, to ages 21. and I know 3 families that plan to attend are vegetarians.

thanks

Hi, Marcy,
I need to know the number of people the kitchen facilities and serving plan and the approximate budget, also whether this is sit down or buffet and whether hors douvres will be served. Thanks

OK. This is a pretty tight budget for a catered dinner this size, especially since I assume you want dessert included. The three types that might be within reach are, Italian, TexMex and BBQ. I would skip BBQ` due to the dressiness of the occasion and the veggie families.
I suggest you get with a few local caterers and talk honestly about the budget, and see what they offer.
You could cut costs by supplying beverages and desserts yourself (maybe moms would do cakes and brownies in exchange for their night off...)
