How about any food that falls into the legume category?

Or

lamb, liver, limes, lemons, lentils, linguini, lox, langostini, lobster, lychee, ladyfingers, lancashire hot pot, langues-de-chat, lardons, liason, loin, lavash, linseed, loaves of bread, lollipops, leavened bread, lemongrass..

Lasagna... unless it's a capital "I" and then I'd say: Ice Cream cake!

Good Luck. By the way the middle options I happened to google :-) gotta give credit where credit is due.

How about Lasagna, not to expensive :)
Or make a Loaf of Bread. Or how about a dessert made with Lady Fingers. I would say Liver, but can you say YUCK!! Or Lambchops, but I've never made them and don't know the cost. You could make Christmas Lollipops out of Chocolate. Lemon Merigne (sp??) Pie.
I hope I've helped you out some :)

MMmmmmm....lemon bars.

What a fun way to set up a potluck! This could be interesting for you. I suggest lemon bars. Here's my recipe.

Lemon Bars

1/3 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup flour
2 eggs
2 Tablespoons flour(seperately for the cup mentioned earlier)
2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
3 Tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
Powdered sugar(optional)

Beat butter on medium speed for 30 seconds. Add 1/4 cup of sugar, and beat until combined. Add the cup of flour and beat until crumbly. Press into the bottom of an ungreased 8x8 baking pan. Bake at 350° for 15-18 minutes, or until just golden.
Meanwhile combine eggs, the remaining sugar, the 2 tablespoons flour, lemon peel, juice, and baking powder. Beat for 2 minutes, or until really well blended. Pour over the hot baked layer.
Bake at 350° for about 20 minutes, or until lightyly browned around the edges and center is set. Cool completely. If desired, sprinkle with powdered sugar. Cut into bars.

I know it looks like a labor intensive recipe, but it's not really. For your event, I would suggest doubling the recipe, and making them in a 9x13 cake pan instead.

R.,

I'm sure more than one person has already suggested Lasagna. But there are also desserts that have Lemon or Key Lime Pie (emphasis on LIME). Or Liver is another item to consider, though I don't know how many people will like it - unless it's a pate.

Just some suggestions.

How about a nice Lentil stew with herbed dumplings. I think there is a good recipe for that on epicurious.com or recipzaar. Maybe lettuce wraps? Buttercrunch or bib lettuce filled with a spicy chicken mixture or some other nice filling. Lime jello if you need something simple. It's cooling and cleansing to the pallet.
