Go right to the sandwich page. You will be doing 1/2 beef, 1/4 each ham and turkey. Allow 1 pound sliced cheese per 10-12 guests. Other needed condiments, rolls, etc. are discussed. Consider a big bowl of egg salad on ice for the non-meat eaters.

Potato salad, about 6 gallons
Pasta salad, start with 9 pounds dry pasta, it will make about 4 1/2 gallons

Beverages and desserts are on the beverage planning page and the dessert planning page

Congratulations, graduate. If this saves you time, trouble or money, please make a donation, maybe a dime per person, to support the site.
