Good timing Nanci- I just posted instruction for a cream can supper, which would be perfect for this- check the thread nearby on the forum.

Help me out, Nanci, what kinds of things have you thought of, how much help, what kind of budget? Any particular ethnicity?

was thinking about either sliders or shredded barbeque beef, maybe some beans, some salsa with chips, not sure what kind of potatoes and any other sides. I plan on cooking by myself and making some stuff ahead of time. I don't want it to cost a fortune but would like it to be a nice spread. thanks

OK.

2 sliders per woman, 3 per man, 1 pound ready to serve meat per 6.

1 1/2 gallons beans

4 pounds chips, 4 pints dips/salsa

potato salad? 18 pounds potatoes; or could do roasted red, twice baked (1 per); all do some ahead

Add a good slaw, 6 quarts.

Maybe an unusual cold veggie dish, corn/black bean salsa, humus? 1 gallon, chips 3 pounds.

ice cold watermelon, 1/2 pound per person

If this saves you time, trouble, or money, please make a donation, maybe a nickel or dime per guest, to support this site. Thanks.
