Food ideas for tomorrow?

I have a large group of moms coming over with their children for a playdate tomorrow at 11 and I'm in need of some yummy, homemade, food ideas. I'm bored with the "usual" (quiche, little sandwiches, a waffle or pancake bar, etc.).

    My go-to list of quick foods for company:
    ~wraps cut into pinwheels (easy & inexpensive & easy to cater to different nutritional needs---vegetarian, diary-free, etc)
    ~crudite---cut up raw veggies and fruits, serve with dip or hummus
    ~a big old pot of red beans and rice. I make mine in the crockpot
    ~fruit and cheese platter. I like playing with different kinds of apples with different cheeses. nom nom nom You can add sliced cold meats to this one.
    ~Baked mac & cheese. I love this because I can make it the night before and just pop it in the oven the next day.
    ~3 (or more!) bean salad

    Wrapped cheese-

    smoked gouda wrapped in a phyllo crust, fried in butter.

    Meanwhile, take honey and water, 1:1 and simmer. Slice dried figs into quarters and simmer in the honey water til soft.

    Pour over the cheese. It's kinda fancy but so easy its stupid, and really, really, really droolworthy.

    -Taco's *my fave*
    -homemade soup-tomato, squash, cucumber if it's hot
