I do a dinner once a week for 125-150 senior citizens for short $$. It is always one entree with sides and dessert. I've done beans and ham with slaw, stuffed peppers, baked ziti, manicotti, meat loaf, chicken pot pie, roast pork... I'm sitting here on Sunday morning trying to place my orders, and I can't think of a thing to serve them on Tuesday. I've been swamped for the last month, and am fresh out of ideas.
There are a couple of issues with cooking for this crowd. I have a small kitchen- standard elect oven/stovetop and a convection oven so cooking a lot on the stovetop is not possible. Oven things work better. I do weddings for at least this number of people, but it's usually buffet style, grilled onsite, with a variety of items. This group has only the one entree with sides so cooking is a challenge. It's transported hot and served cafeteria style from steam tables.
I was thinking of Sweet and Sour Pork served over rice, but beyond that, I'm a total blank slate.
Any ideas for this Tuesday?
