Q: I'm hosting an Easter dinner this coming weekend with a Mexican theme. I'm working half of the day on the day of the dinner so I need some fresh ideas for Mexican food where a lot of the prep can be done ahead of time. Ideally, the entire menu would stick to the theme, from appetizers to dessert. Any suggestions?

Editor: Lynne, this is an easy kind of dinner to prep ahead! I'd suggest making a big pot of carnitas or goat meat and a big bowl of slaw and other sliced vegetables. These things will hold well (as will pitchers of aguas frescas and margaritas).

Readers, what else would you suggest?
