Ideas for Casual Make-Ahead Dinner for 30

JVHcook | Apr 27, 2011 05:35 PM

So I volunteered/was chosen to cook a dinner at my church for around 30 people. It will be casual and it doesn't have to be anything too fancy or time-consuming, I just want something that will please. The tough part is that there will be a few vegetarians there, and the location is about 30 minutes away and I'll have to cook everything at my house and bring it there. We might not even be able to warm things up, so serving at room-temperature might have to do.

So far I think I'll bake a lot of bread to go with whatever else we serve. The main dish is what I need you guys for. Any ideas for serving a crowd this size? Anything is helpful, especially specific recipes. Thanks in advance.

Also, if you have a great dessert that would work I'd love to hear it as well.
