We tried to keep the menu simple and cost effective while still providing a hearty meal. These people were really hungry after a day of riding and woofed down the food.
This meal was prepared in kitchen where the function was held. I suggest that you check out such a kitchen making sure that it has the equipment you need for serving. We needed a carving knife and the one that was there turned out to be very dull. We had a 'terrible' time slicing the meat.
We shopped at Costco for most of the food, so Costco sized items were used....Larger amounts than in a regular grocery store.
1 BIG bag of tortilla chips, shredded cheddar, chopped green onions
This was served as an appy, with the cheese melted on top, sprinkled with gr. onions and salsa.
1 Large bag Chopped Romain, used for a Caesar Salad with homemade dressing.
Needed double the amount, they really liked this.
They were so hungry that we served this early along with the natchos as the appetizer.
10 lb. beef roast (just did it, too close, use 10 lb. for 20 people)
10 lb. of potatoes made into potato salad (1/3 left over)
1 large bag (Costco) coleslaw mix - 1/2 bag would have been ok, but it's cheap so use it all.
1 med bowl of pasta salad - 1/2 left
3 loaves garlic bread - 1/2 loaf left
6 plain dinner buns - all gone
For Dessert we served Stawberry Ice Cream Shortcake.
Coffee was served, but not really wanted, they would have prefered a
flavoured decaf such as Irish Cream Decaf.
