Yup, you read that exactly right. Thank you for the response- my guess was close to your professional estimate :) Will be sure to report back. |
: Hello Mikaela:
: Did I read you question right? Guests are
: coming and going throughout the day?
: I would have a hard time determining exact
: amounts myself. Unless you feed the same
: group day in and day out (as in a camp
: setting), it's tough to know exactly how
: much they will eat. I would make sure you
: have sufficient food. Unfortunately, this is
: not an exact science.
: You can always buy extra proteins. Stow
: hamburgers, hot dogs, braughts, shrimp,
: etc., ice chests. Pull them out to cook on
: the grill to order. That way you can safely
: take uncooked leftovers home.
: I would plan for 65 to 70 burgers; 40 hot
: dogs (mainly for the kids); 25 to 30
: braughts (more if you have the guests like
: them, plus they can be cut in halt); 2 cases
: of corn (48 ears per case); and around 30
: servings each of kabobs and shrimp (again,
: more if these are popular items where you
: live). For the pasta salad, potato salad and
: fruit salad, I would plan for around 2 to 3
: ounces per person for each salad. That will
: give you 8 to 10 pounds for each salad. Make
: sure you keep the salads on ice throughout
: the day.
: Enjoy the day. Don't forget to report back
: after the event. Feedback helps others who
: are planning similar cookouts.
