So, my boyfriend has asked me to help cater a little dinner shindig for a group of actors, and future movie makers for his next film project. For two days. For 100 dollars. Personally, I believe $100 is quite an impossible amount of money to spend. Unfortunately, he's on a severely tight budget and can't afford much more than that. That's $50 a day to spend on ingredients. I'm trying not to let my pessimism get to me.
My question to you all: Is it possible? And if it miraculously is, are there any recipes you may recommend that are simple and cheap enough to make, all while satisfying the taste buds of a few Americans and foreigners? Since pasta is rather affordable, I was considering something with that. Along with perhaps a salad and some sort of meat dish. Maybe meatballs, chicken something?
Any help you may offer will be greatly appreciated.
