I need to fit another course in here but I dont know what or when. Suggestions?
I would suggest preparing something else for dessert besides milkshakes...CGF is right, it is a very liquidly spread...Maybe you could serve cake or pie instead or even fruit...
Hm..... thats a good point, but it would be nice to build up with Smooth Gazpacho to pasta salad to heavy stew and finish with a smooth and creamy Milkshake. The whole point of my being able to make a 5-course meal is because of how easy it is and baking a pie isnt easy.

Very true...I'm just thinking if I'm eating Gazpacho then pasta salad and then stew and then a milkshake! Just seems like a lot of liquids...More than I prefer...

But it still all sounds really good...

Well the stew is very chunky and only 2 quarts of liquid thats not much and then you reduce my 1" its pretty thick and creamy and tasty.

Ahhh...I usually have my stews a little more on the watery side...So I was imagining that...But that should be fine ending to your meal...

Jelly
Croissants (from Costco)
Bread

What's the best sandwich I can make using these ingredients? (and no, not using ALL of them)

i'm intrigued by the fact that you use Gin, but that sounds kinda bland...here's a the recipe i've been using:

Mr & Mrs T's Bloody Mary Mix (bold and spicy sounds good, but i always get the original, so i can add my own spices...btw, this is just the name for the base, not the entire recipe...its in most liquor stores)
Vodka
ice
worstechire sauce
lemon juice
tobasco sauce
celery salt

and then whatever you want for garnish...pickles are always good, but if you can find pickled okra, those are GREAT in a bloody mary.

I think Gin is better than Vodka but yours sounds amazing, I've just taken it up so its not too exotic as of now. Thanks for the recipe.

They actually taste pretty good, the V8 is usually too salty but the gin and ice and lime juice help to dull it just right.

dude, i actually hate tomato juice more than anything. I NEVER thought I'd be a Bloody Mary drinker. but, a good Bloody Mary will not taste too much like tomato juice. can't describe what it tastes like, but it rocks. there are only 2 bars in green bay that i ever order 'em in (nothing worse than a bad bloody). And i'll drink the ones i make myself with the recipe listed above.

no prob, lemme know if you try it.
I've actually never had a bloody with gin, but i'll have to try it now because Gin & Tonics are my favorite mixed drink and I've been looking for something else to use Gin in. I'd probably have to alter the recipe because, while vodka is good with a salty drink, gin is a lot more citrusy (did i just invent a word?) and might not be that good with my recipe.

Do you use Gin or Vodka in Martinis? and yes, you pretty much invented a word.

Actually citrusy is a real word...Do you like gin and juice?

well, i don't make martinis for a couple reasons:
-you have to get top shelf liquor for them to be tolerable, which gets expensive.
-i don't own a martini shaker.
-martini glasses don't fit in my car's cup holder (just kidding)
-i'm not that fancy.

but, when i'm at a bar that serves martinis (which rarely happens) i get 'em with gin. like i said before, i like the taste of a good gin, but gin & tonics and martinis are the only thing i've used gin in.

I never had a Martini myslef I was just going to suggest you use Gin if you had been using Vodka in them. As I said my knowledge of mixing drinks is limited and I really dont know that many drinks to mix Gin in.

well i hate bloody maries because without tabasco or worchester they're way to bland, although sometimes some steak/soy sauces are amazing in them, but with those i hate the taste.

As for Martinis i make mine the way Churchill made his. Poor some gin in a glass and show it the vermouth from the otherside of the room. Even though the original martinis are with vodka i use gin.

nope original martinis were you take a glass, dunk it into some vermouth for the smell, then poor the vermouth out and pour in vodka.

as for the meal i gues you should change the desert then. depending on her diet you might wanna reconsider the pasta as well.
