Just fed 11 people. Now I'm drinking a giant leftover mimosa.

I made PILES of food.....PILES! I thought I was going way overboard.

It was all gone except for a smidge of fruit salad. This means I didn't make enough, right?

It's really effing hard to guage how much food one needs to make for more than 4 people when it's not hot dogs and potato chips.

Re: Just fed 11 people. Now I'm drinking a giant leftover mimosa.

  • My H and I threw a BBQ for my MIL. It was about 18 people. She kept nit picking saying how much food would be wasted because I made way to much and "needed to learn how much to make for people." Sure enough it was all gone, but a little macaroni salad!

    I was worried I didn't make enough too because of that haha. I'm sure you had a great party! I'm jealous of the mimosa:)

  • You probably made the right amount unless someone was asking for seconds and there were none.

    What did you make?

  • I am sure you did fine.  What did you serve?

  • I think you probably made the right amount.  Good job!  I've got to come up with something to make while we're on vacation with my family in a couple weeks and I have NO CLUE how much food we're going to need for 8 adults and 4 kids....

    Well, my nephew asked for another biscuit, and there weren't any, but he was satisfied with chocolate mousse pie intead. lol

    I made breakfast for dinner

    - bacon and egg breakfast casserole with puff pastry crust (6 eggs and 1 pack of bacon)

    - biscuits (16)

    - sausage (1.5 jimmy dean cylinders worth)

    - fruit salad (1 million strawberries, 5 kiwis, 5 clementines, and a giant red delicious apple)

    - mimosas

    * I was going to make hashbrowns and COMPLETELY forgot about them until we sat down for dinner

     

    Dessert was chocolate mousse pie made by my sil, and heath bar cookies made by me.
