Do they have a grill? I think grilling shows are so fun. If there's someone willing to grill up hot dogs and hamburgers for you it makes your job easier. Then you can do all kinds of fun stuff for the toppings and have a "burger/hot dog bar." Slice onions and tomatoes with the Ultimate Slice and Grate, chop onions with the chopper, put ketchup in a red pepper, mustard in a yellow pepper and relish in a green pepper. Use the Simple Additions for all the toppings. It's a great way to show the grill tools, party plates, Quick Stir Pitchers, put buns in the Woven Selections, etc. I can't wait to do one of these parties this summer.
That's what I'd suggest. Or an Ice Cream Social with the same idea. People can build their own sundaes and you'd use tools to prepare all the topppings.
I did this alot last summer - I got all 3 rubs and used them on 3 boneless chicken breasts and grilled them using the BBQ tools. Actually the hosts husband did this while I did my demo, which was the Strawberry Spinach Salad (recipe below). I baked the almonds beforehand. We sliced the chicken onto 3 SA squares and the guests ate the salad with their choice of chicken. Everyone loved it! You can use the Large Square SA and basket if you have it, for the salad which shows off the June Host Special.
We made iced tea in the Large QSP.

Score cucumber lengthwise; remove seeds. Slice cucumber; cut slices in half/ Slice onion into thin wedges.
Place spinach in large serving bowl; add strawberries, cucumber and onion. Whisk dressing; pour over salad, gently tossing to coat. Sprinkle with almonds. Serve immediately.
Mandarin Pasta Salad....you could actually grill the chicken that goes into the salad and demo the grilling tools as well as everything else this recipe calls for. I love the MPS because it is an all occassion, all season recipe...
