Q: My boyfriend and I are having a guest over for dinner on a weeknight, but I don't usually get home until close to dinner time. I'll have to do as much as possible ahead of time and am looking for suggestions for make-ahead dinner party meals that reflect the spring weather we are finally getting. Any ideas?
