Looking for ideas for recipes that feed a large number of people.
We always rent condos and try to stay in for dinner a few nights during the week. Each family responsible for making dinner for everybody (about 12 adults and 6 children).
We also do the no-brainer type stuff....spaghetti...things that you can make a ton of easily

What do you do? My brother has decided he's going to liven things up and make fish tacos one night. I need something exciting that I can easily make a lot of with out too much fuss.

Ideas??

Ron you and I are thinking alike...how scary is that?

Also, you could do "he Louisiana version of Ron's" and do a crawfish boil or crab boil. YUM.

If any are going fishing, etc. You could do a Cioppino. I have a good recipe if you want it. You are in the mecca of fresh seafood as compared to OHIO! :lol:

Years ago we would boil up a big pot of shrimp. Was good but it was a lot like fondue. Boiling was easy. All the peeling to eat was work. A whole lotta work for a little bit of food.

We do the spaggetti deal now. Bowl of salad and loaf of garlic bread. Easy to clean up.

An even easier version of the spaggetti meal would be Stuaffer's lasagna. With your group it might take two pans to feed everyone but again.....little clean-up.

If the building has an outside grill, do burgers and dogs outside. Tub of tater salad and some chips. Once again. Not much to clean up. Starting to see a pattern here.

Spend a little more and do steaks out on grill. Soak some ears of corn in water and throw on the grill. Baked taters.
Little tip on this one. Send a designated male to the store with the women to make sure the steaks are put in buggy and make it to the car. ( long story)

Thanks for the great ideas.

What's Cioppino?

A grill --- great idea...did some checking though...and we don't have one at the place we are staying.

Also any ideas on easy desserts that feed a bunch??

Cioppino is a seafood stew with a tomato base. The Italian immigrant fisherman would come into the docks at Fisherman's Wharf and "chip-in" a sample of whatever they caught that day and everyone would eat together. It can vary. Crab legs, scallops, fish, shrimp, clams, mussels any or all of the above! Good with crusty bread to sop up the broth.

And make chili, or chicken cacciatore, or sweet and sour meatballs.
Make some great side salads, like a pasta salad and a caeser.
Buy two buckets of fried chicken and eat them cold the next day with a few good salads, tastes so good after a day at the beach.

For desserts--how bout a giant fresh fruit salad with local produce stand berries, peaches, cantaloupe, watermelon etc? When Im in SC on vacation and I visit friends I usually scoop out a watermelon and fill it up!

You can liven it up with pound cake and vanilla ice cream for the kids.

How about pasta with a garlic butter sauce and shrimp. it one of my favorites or you could boil up one big pot of pasta and have both the garlic butter shrimp and a regular tomato or meat sauce for spaghetti. Again add a nice salad and some garlic bread. It feeds meat and seafood lovers alike.

ooohh the pasta idea sounds yummy. I might do that.

I had thought of the fresh fruit idea. The little ones love fresh fruit. Hadn't thought of the watermelon idea though -- I think that's a great idea.

Thank you all for such great suggestions.
I sent my sister-n-laws a link to this to give them ideas too.

The chicken idea I think I will use for lunches.

Thanks again for everyone's help.

How about pizza and a salad.....................................

Maybe bbq, baked beans. slaw, and potato salad. We have barbecue places around here where you can purchase all of that. Have soft drinks. I prefer A&W diet root beer.
