Meal for 100+ for $300

alaughingdog | Feb 14, 201204:57 AM

I said I would cook for a church dinner, likely to be for 100-125 people, then found out the budget was $300. The dinner doesn't have to be elaborate, and the desserts will be donated, but I'd like to make something substantial, delicious and fun. There will be children and adults present. I was thinking of meatballs, some turkey meatballs stretched with grain, and some veggie balls of some sort involving beans, as the protein, and maybe some sort of potato dish instead of pasta to soak up a good tomato sauce. A chopped salad of whatever is reasonable in the way of produce, maybe one other veggie dish, and foccacia. That's what I was thinking, but I thought I'd toss the idea out here and see what ideas you have. Thanks!
