I have a sort of mandatory potluck thing at work, and I'm out of luck for ideas. There's probably, maybe, one foodie in the entire bunch, so anything too adventurous wouldn't work. Also, there's probably around 35-45 people eating at a potluck luncheon that happens on a Thursday, so I don't have a lot of time to, well, do anything.
I'm a little desperate since there's only a small toaster oven at work, and I can't take a hot item to work (take public transit at rush hour). At the moment, I'm thinking I may have to resort to something like pasta salad, but I'm wondering if anyone would have any other ideas that might be fast and inexpensively scaled to feed that many people.
