oops - just noticed the date - sorry I wasn't on over the weekend!
Hope this is in time for you - My 1st food service job (33 yrs ago) was in a chocolate making/store - we did these all the time Ihey were unheard of at the time... inside will be fine - they are delicious - put on stick/skewer dip freeze - no problem!
Lentil, If you end up with her gone and need any help with events, give me a call - I am only an hour away - and I will work your event YOUR way :) pgr
Example of what shroom just mentioned - Woman told me she had budget of $1000 for 75 people, and then gave me the menu she had in mind. I told her I could not do that menu for that price, but would give her a price on the menu she wanted (it came out to about $1600) and a menu for $1000. This did NOT include plates, flatware, serving staff etc. I also gave her 2 other ideas of menus I thought she would like in a range of prices. We ended up with her picking items from the...
Lentil - I really understand! As you know I am very small as well. I am also a verbal processor and often talk things out as I make decisions.

It is also helping my pricing because I am sure of how much of each thing I need and what containers will work best freezer to microwave.

As always, I love your ideas shroom. I have done the finger sandwiches for ladies luncheon - make 50 sandwiches, cut off crusts and cut sandwich into 4 or even 6 - with the soup and salad, it is plenty.
I charge the same for kids as adults unless they are under 3 or I have a specific separate menu for them. As Shroom said - they use all the utensils and often take more food than adults, but don't eat it. pgr555
