This is a tolerable menu, needs a little tweaking.

Baked ziti- Using 10# ziti- with the mac salad and potatoes, too much; do 6 pounds max; 5 is probably enough
Meatballs- 10#- I would do at least 12
Roast Beef (Sandwiches)- 10#- close- get thinsliced deli style
60 rolls Get 6 dozen- some extra
You need sandwich trimmings- do 1/2 the amount for 100 on the sandwich page
You need at least 4 pounds sliced cheese

Garden salad- 15 heads of lettuce
Dressings- 1-1/4 quart each- 4 types
See the plan for 100, you need to beef this up but decrease amounts. Use 2/3 of 100.

Macaroni salad- 8#
Pasta Salad- 8#
That's about a gallon each, plenty

Parsley Red Potatoes- 15# OK
Green Beans- 12# I would do 14

How about some fruit trays? 1/2 the deluxe tray for 100. Chips and dip? 1 pound chips per 12, 1 pint dip per pound

If this saves you time, trouble or money, consider a donation, maybe a dime per person, to support this site.
