recipes for large crowds

Twenty wonderful people are spread out all over our home right now. We are hosting my husband’s side of the family for a rather spontaneous family reunion. Within two weeks, decisions were made by families from Wisconsin, Minnesota and Colorado  to descended upon us for a week.

You all know how I love spontaneous hospitality, but this is taking it to a whole new level with “no planning” meal planning and sleeping arrangements. It’s a wonderful gift that they are all so flexible.

feeding large groups

So far, meal plans ideas include breakfast skillet, baked french toast, cereal and crock pot oatmeal for breakfast.

Sandwiches, mac and cheese, homemade pizza and BBQ chicken burritos for lunch.

Dinners include at least one grilling night of hamburgers, hot dogs and brats, BBQ chicken in crock pot (C.O.S.T cooking…will use the left over chicken for the lunch burritos), lasagna, taco salad, and ????.

what to feed a lot of people

As you can see, I have many holes in this week long meal plan. So help a friend out, will you please?

If you were cooking for twenty people for one week, what meals would you include?

Please share you best ideas for feeding a large group!
