That might be where I am screwing up oddly enough my friend is a Potato farmer and is giving me what is called Premium Reds they are quite large and come in ten pound bags, I am used to the small red. Some of these could be **** near big enough to be bakers. But there FREE and I won't look a gift horse in the mouth but I hate to waste as well and take more from them than I need. I don't want to lose my source either:look:

Hmmmmmm? Meat & potatoes guys who can't do 1/3 pound of spuds? Doesn't sound right. But try cutting back to 1/4 lb portions.

For the Thursday gig: Is that also just meat and potatoes? If not, I would think six pounds plenty for that group.

potatoes fly off our veg platters......always nice to have backups.
I'd do the whole 10# for 30 especially with a buffet....ditto rolls....nothing like seeing a child pile 3-4 on their plate.:crazy:

Thanks I'll do the 10lbs to be safe it's a chicken breast, veggie salad roll and dessert.
