I've got a few cocktail parties lined up, and I'm sure there's more to come for those last minute planners, but right now, I've got quite a few simple dinners for 25. Most of these are in those 55 and older housing places so there's little money and lots of older ladies on the planning committee... I actually don't mind these at all though- pork loin, mashed or twice baked, a couple of veggies, sometimes a salad, rolls, and apple crisp for dessert. No apps. Simple, simple! The pp cost is under $15, but the tip is always good, I send one person-sometimes myself, and I do the cooking myself- kind of like cooking for the family. Often they're on a weeknight, so it's filler for a night when we probably won't have anything else.
