This is a lot of food for 75 people

72 Deviled eggs- OK
Cheese- 1 pound per 12
cracker, 1 pound per 15
olives 2 quarts
Fruit tray/salad- use 1/2 the deluxe tray for 100 on the fruit page, with a quart or 2 extra strawberries
Veggie tray, 10 pounds max
hummus- 1 cup per 5
blue cheese- 1 cup per 6
Maybe a couple pounds pita pieces or pita chips?

Considering lunch meat tray and meatballs- not necessary

Buffalo wings 20lbs- OK

20 lbs baked sliced ham- OK, do this in thin slices, some left
80 PCs fried chicken- OK, but 60 would probably do
10 lbs Fried fish- I would skip- does not hold well, and tough to prep

Now, a half pan is about 10 servings veggies, about 15 heavy starches
2 half pans baked ziti, 1w/meat
2 half pans rice & beans
4 half pans mac & cheese- 3 prob enough

(2)half pans greens and
(2)half pans green beans- do 3 at least

36 honey wheat rolls & 60 white rolls

2 half pans macaroni salad & 2 half pans potato salad- plenty

banana pudding- 4 9x13
Sheet cake full sheet serves 50-60

drinks- ice tea / lemonade, see the beverage planning page
