hi. i am having a bit of trouble invisioning how much of things i need. i bought a bunch of 15 litre pails.
dinner menu
green salad ??
potato salad x 35lb potato
chicken larger x20
baked beans x24cans
roasted veggies(carrots peppers cauliflower) ?
buns 120

so if i filled the 15L pail with lettuce and tomatoes, cukes etc would that be enough for everyone. and also roasted veggies if a brought a full pail full would that be enough??

thanks in advanced

15 liters is about 4 gallons US, or one electric roaster. This serves about 50 for most entree items, 60-90 for side dishes. So you would probably have no salad left, be about right for roasted veggies, plenty of baked beans, very close or a little short on potato salad. No idea what chicken larger is? See the plan for 100 table for advice on amounts of different cuts of chicken.
