I'm feeding forty! Okay, not forty, but we're having an old fashioned barn raising (shed) this week and so the family have moved in. The brother, sister-in-law with their two babies and the nephew are already here (professionals) and the parents and in-laws, aunt and uncle come tomorrow.
So how does one plan a week's worth of meals for ravenous construction workers, two vegetarians, a diabetic, and three celiac's? It's gonna be a challenge! The key is enough diversity to keep everyone from starving.
Day One Menu: Enchiladas, salad, chipolte rice, and homemade granola.
Day Two Menu: omelets to order, wrap sandwiches, lasagna, garlic toast, corn, salad, bruchetta, and chocolate chip cookies.
Day Three: cereal, scrambled eggs, french toast, sandwiches, baked potato bar complete with homemade chili, bread sticks, and rhubarb crisp.
