This past weekend my husband and I hosted our church’s annual Sweetheart Banquet. We knew would have a small group this year and he decided to cook the food to keep the cost down. I said, “Go for it, honey. I’ll help, but I’m not doing the main part.” He said, “No problem.” He stayed true to his word.
First we figured out the menu:
Ham or Roast Beef
Green Beans or Carrots
Potatoes – Roasted, Spicy, or Cheesy
A variety of Cheese cakes
Angel Food Cake – Sugar Free Topping or Cool Whip
Iced Tea – Water – Fruit Punch – Coffee
Then his mom did all the purchasing of the food. On the 14th my husband cooked the food, and we took it to the train car where we held the banquet. In the meantime I planned the games, prizes, and decorations.
I forgot to video the dessert – oops. Guess I was too eager to eat it.
What food do you like at a banquet? Do you like to try new things or have familiar things? Have you ever cooked for a large crowd?
