Wow I’m totally embarrassed that it has been so long since last time….so lets just move on. lol
Community Group Meals
I have been the meal coordinator for a few months now and I love it. I love food, I love cooking food and sharing it with others. A dream job I guess you could say. I have been looking online to get ideas and there is not a ton of information out there on this topic. So I thought I would share what we have done and hope to hear back from YOU to get more ideas!
Breakfast night – Hash brown casserole, muffins, biscuits and gravy, quiche, pancakes, sausage, bacon, juice, coffee and coffee cake.
Panera Night – Soup, salad and sandwich. We had 2 soups, bread, lunch meat, cheese, condiments, pickles, lettuce, onions, 2 salads, drinks and dessert.
Chili Cookoff – Had 3 people make chili, then everyone else brought cheese, sour cream, corn bread, drinks and dessert. I had a judging sheet and had 6 people judge, filling out a judge sheet for each bowl of chili. Counted up all the points and the chili with the most points won. My hubby won! He loves making his Famous chili…not sure its famous but he thinks it is! Here is the link for the judging sheet. http://www.docstoc.com/docs/10041544/Chili-Cook-Off-Judging-Sheet
Italian Night – Homemade pizza, spaghetti, lasagna, mac and cheese, salad, garlic bread, veggie tray, canollis, and drinks.
Taco night – Hard and soft shells, taco meat, re-fried beans, cheese, lettuce, sour cream, olives, salsa, guacamole, chips, dip, drinks and desserts.
Haystacks – This is the official order the haystack should be in on your plate. Chips, preferably Frito’s but tortilla chips work too. So chips, rice, black beans, cheese, lettuce, onions, salsa and sour cream. This is a family favorite of my husbands family.
Grilling – Burgers, brats, hotdogs, buns, cheese, ketchup, mustard, lettuce, onions, chips, potato salad, veggies, fruit salad, drinks and desserts.
Potato Bar – Baked Potatoes, sour cream, cheese, butter, green onions, chili, bacon, salad, drinks and desserts.
All of these work great with large groups too. On average we need to feed 30 people, including kiddos.
Happy Community Group meal planning! I would love to hear what you have done!
