Q: I'm hosting an Academy Awards party, and I need some ideas! We'll be watching in a theater. There will be a microwave and ice, but no refrigerator, no oven. The party will be long — we'll watch hours of red carpet and the awards. I'd like to have food to snack on, as well as a proper meal for my 20 guests. I've got dessert covered, but I need an idea for a dinner entree and sides that could be out on the counter for a few hours, but will still be appetizing. Thanks for any inspiration you can send my way!

Editor: We'd recommend popcorn, no matter what — maybe some bacon fat popcorn, and a bowl of peanut butter popcorn?
Beyond that, readers what would you suggest?
