Good timing, least expensive slot.

I do 10 pounds small meatballs per 100 with 3 quarts sauce. Tenders depends on the size, see if you can arrange the smaller ones and do at least 2 per person.

You might add a creamy sweet dip with ginger or lemon snaps or animal cracker dippers. 2 quarts per 100, 4 pounds cookies.

You can have some of the cheese be logs or spreads, cream cheese is helpfully inexpensive when trying to provide 15 pounds of cheeses. 6 pounds crackers per 100.

You can write back.
