I am having a get together with 40 people. We have 7 lbs. of london broil, 40 pieces of chicken, and 4 lbs. of swordfish. We will be having appetizers: chips, dip, nachos, salsa, veggie platter, stuffed fried potatoes. Side dishes include, tortellini salad, spanish rice, twice baked potatoes, marinated veggies, green salad. Will this be enough?

You would run out of bo0th beef and swordfish before everyone got what they wanted. For this party, I would do 11 pounds beef and at least 7 pounds swordfish.

If these are the breaded ones, you need 7 ounces per person as an entree serving for a party situation. 2 #10 cans of green beans, you will have some left.
