So our reception is on a Sunday from 2pm to 6-pm. Not quite Brunch, Not quite Diner. My family calls this meal time Liner, and we do it quite often.
So we are having Liner reception for 100 people. Can you bees help us design the menu? We are allowed to bring in our own food so my mom wants to cook, which I am so happy about. My mom’s food is the bomb.
So far we are thinking:
- Pernil – Roasted Pork shoulder – Puerto Rican dish
- Rice and beans
- mashed potatoes – Gluten Free
- Chicken dish
my mom wants to make lasagna but I am iffy about that. I can take it or leave it. I think maybe adding a sandwhich or something? A 3 or 4 foot hero?
What kinds of food would you eat between 2-6?

@Sapphire-Dreamer: OMG I LOVE PERNIL. Awesome!! My biggest challenge planning my wedding buffet has been a lack of a consistent theme. However if you are having pernil and rice/beans, how would you feel about embracing the Puerto Rican theme? That would give direction to everything else on your menu and might make it easier?

@fingerscrossed: Already ahead of you girl. My wedding is going to be super puerto rican, since both of us are 100% (can anyone say WEEEEPA!).
I am just figuring out if we should have sandwhiches….to keep it somewhat light.
I am just so relieved I dont have to worry about catering cost. And really, no caterer is better then my mom

Your menu sounds yummy. The only suggestion I have is to add abother vegetable.

I say NAY to both lasagna and sandwiches – neither are light, neither fit the theme in any way whatsoever. You have no hot vegetables on there so I would do that, and then maybe a fruit salad would be nice and light.

I vote no to lasagna and sandwiches.
Add a vegetable. Maybe some aguacate and onions, platanos or tostones or both. wepa
