I've neglected to contribute to this effort up to this point, so I thought I'd rectify the situation. As a bachelor, I think I bring a unique perspective to this cook book, so I have included a couple of ideas below.

Appetizers: As a precursor to any fine meal, everyone could benefit from a quick visit to the local Albertson's where you'll be able to pick up a perennial favorite, Backyard Barbeque Wahoos. Some might argue that this is, in fact, a side dish, but I prefer to whet my appetite with this new entry into the potato chip market. For presentation, I like to rip open the bag and let them spill out on to my coffee table. A little OBoy Oberto! beef jerky is often a tasty complement.

Drinks: This is a crucial category. While you are at the store, pick up a six pack of Coke (not the diet kind either) and then head straight home to the freezer. The Coke should be chilled just to the point where small flecks of the beverage begin to crystallize. This process must be monitored closely because over-freezing can ruin the taste and what's worse, leave you without something to wash down the Wahoos and jerky. It should be served in a tall glass full (not a quarter or half-full, but all the way to the top) of ice. This will prevent the beverage from getting watered down. The drink should be consumed with some level of restraint, however, in order to avoid giving yourself a nasty headache from the cold.

Other than that, I don't have much to add to the first category. I could probably throw a few recipes your way in upcoming categories. I am, however, anxious to get my hands on this book, as it will expand my pathetically narrow repertoire of meals.
