We discussed doing a Valentine theme next month.  Tablecloths, candles, cute Valentine's day aprons... :)

 

Also suggested was pot roast for the meal.  Meat & veggies all in one place!  Easy crock pot meal too.

 

One thing we learned tonight was the less options, the easier it is to serve with a smaller #.  Tonight on the hot bar we had chicken pot pie & macaroni & cheese.  Not a lot of options means less hands needed to serve.

 

Thoughts?

I agree that fewer choices are better -- much easier to clean up as well.    I will bring the usual snacks, treats etc.  and I will buy the tablecloths!

Oh, yeah!  Easy crock pot dishes . . . count me in!  I cooked all day today, and my daughter tells me that RunnerGirl's pot pie was the "BEST!"  (Licking my wounds.)

If everyone else is going to bring a roast we could still have biscuits, as I think they go really well with roast.  If anyone is capable of baking them from scratch [not me], it'd be awesome to have heart shaped ones...  :wub:

I'm going to bring a crock pot with roast and veggies too.  Just from our own family's experience, there are usually about 8 servings when I make it.  And I have one of the larger,oval crocks?

i'll make 2 of them then... have to make one crockpot on Tuesday and then another on Thursday. I can heat up the first one in the oven thurs, that should work.

Mine was "too bready!"  She gets it honest, though!  I'm the weirdo that likes pizza crust!

We will drop off bananas and something that says "Valentine's Day" for dessert, maybe cookies.

the beef roasts that I got are about 2.5 lbs each, the recipe I saw says it serves 6-8. I am doing 3 instead of 2 that way we will have 7 so should serve around 60 if y'alls are about the same size.  

my heart-shaped cookies are a LOL sight to behold, maybe one of them kept the heart shape, maybe. but at least they look valentine-y with that pink icing and red sprinkles.

We are cooking two roasts that are a little over 3 lbs each.  I made eight valentine centerpieces for the tables.

I will bring the tablecloths and usual snacks.  But, alas, I will have no "helpers" -- apparently they would rather see Luke Bryant!!

Paul -- I don't think we need any drinks or desserts.  Should have more than enough and plenty of people to take care of it.

Thanks anyway.
