You probably have more entrees than you need, and not quite enough sides/salad/veg.

You will have fish left. You could actually skip it with the cod, calamari and clams

6lbs homemade mac & Cheese- I would do 8-10 pounds dry, at least 2 1/2 full pans, unless you increase the potatoes and rice
6 lbs baked beans- usually I do 3 gallons for 100
1 pan pasta salad- only about 30 servings
1 full pan roasted potatoes "
1 full pan seafood rice "
1 full pan salad- way short for this crowd, at least double. Prewashed greens from the grocery would be an easy expansion- .see the plan for 100 page for guidance
1 medium pan Portuguese ???

How about 15 pounds bread/rolls and 3-4 pounds butter

Sorry Portuguese Rice
I also have a full pan of pasta with sauce and a full pan of lobster pasta. Plus i will have the bread and butter.

I will increase the sides thank you so much for your help.

You are good for starch with just the 6 pounds mac, then. Happy birthday.
