Your last dinner party menu?

I'm always asking here for ideas for my dinner party menus, and always see other people asking. This time, I'd like to see YOUR complete menu for the last dinner party you had. Everything from drinks and apps to dessert, even if you just put out chips and jarred salsa to start - just curious to see how your complete menus came together.

My last get together was 8 people, including 2 little boys under age 4. We grilled most of it, and ate outside.

To start:
Homemade onion dip (alton brown recipe)
crudite and salt & pepper potato chips
To drink:
homemade iced tea
grilled meat (DH's job...not sure what kind)
caramelized onion quinoa (mark bittman recipe)
grilled green beans with roasted cherry tomatoes
corn on the cobb
Chocolate chip cookies

A fairly simple meal - none of the recipes were too complicated, but some took a while with caramelizing onions and such. Your turn!
