50th Anniversay Party
We're having parents 50th anniversary party with approx 56 guests. Menu includes stuffed pork loin, boneless skinless chicken breasts, sausage onions and peppers, stuffed shells, oven roasted baby potatoes, steamed broccoli, and green beans and salad with toppings on side. Looking for help with amounts to purchase. Our local wholesale store has pork loins approx 10 lbs. Will 2 be enough? And, chicken breasts are packs of 12. Will 4 be enough (figuring on cutting in half)? Your assistance with advising on quantities for all menu items would be greatly appreciated.
stuffed pork loin, 20 pounds
boneless skinless chicken breasts, 10 pounds boneless skinless
sausage onions and peppers, 1 pound per 8
stuffed shells, 2 small or 1 1/2 large per person
