Our budding teenage director will be shooting a movie again soon. In the past I have provided sliced 3' long layered sub type sandwiches from Gelson's, chips, green salad, fruit salad, good takeout pizza, brownies, cookies, juice squeezes, etc. The purchased items have worked well but it would be nice to have something I can make ahead--save $$ by doing it myself & not have last minute pickup, as I participate in other ways as well as craft service.
I need things I can pull from the frig, heat if necessary, or have at room temp & serve with minimum hassle. They are used to getting a pretty tasty spread, & I enjoy providing it.
Any ideas, anyone? Maybe something like chile? Even if it gets too hectic to prepare the food myself I could use some fresh ideas for ordering prepared items. These are mostly high school freshmen & sophomores (& their parents always help finish eating it up when they pick up their kids).
Thanks for any input!
