Well. I did it.
I catered a party for 60 people.
At first, I was all like of course I can do that. No problem. But then I started to panic, cause I've never had to cook for so many before.
What if there wasn't enough? Running out of food would be the worst. Or wait. What if I didn't season it all properly?? You know, just cause you can make something for dinner and it tastes good, how do you know you can stretch that out to feed 60???
But in the end it all worked out and I think the food was pretty good. I got a lot of compliments. But honestly I was so exhausted by Saturday that I could barely taste what I was eating.
|This is NOT a picture of the chicken cacciatore
I made for Saturday, but it is a picture of a
cacciatore sauce I made a while ago.
I wish I had thought to take pictures, but it was only chicken cacciatore and stuffed shells so there wasn't much to see. Except maybe for all the containers.
There were six 9x12 pans of each, plus two of penne in sauce. Plus the crock pot of sauce. And I also made some shells with soy cheese and one pan of cacciatore without mushrooms. You know, for people with food issues.
I have food issues. Mostly just that I eat too much of it.
