Not Wedding Related, but I’m hosting a dinner for 40+ at my house in October. It’s for all the parents in my daughter’s grade at school. What would be easiest to serve to a crowd and what would be the easiest to eat? We will have tables, but not for every last person. Some people will eat standing up or sitting in a chair or the couch I’m sure. We’re going to have it catered, so ease of preparation isn’t really what I’m thinking about.
What would you serve?

Tacos are usually easy to eat while standing. Plus, it sounds yummy. Now I am hungry!!

Pulled pork! That sounds good. Just try to not make them too messy.

hmmm I LOVE BBQ! And I find it much easier to hold a sandwich while standing than a taco.
Maybe do kabobs? Those are super easy to eat anywhere!

I should have mentioned that we can PROBABLY get a discount, because two different sets of parents own different bbq places. Weird huh?

I voted for tacos/fajitas. I’m biased because I LOVE mexican food but I also think they would be easier to eat standing up than a BBQ sandwich. And yeah, that sounds delicious. I think it’s time to make dinner now.

Mexican! For our rehearsal dinner we’re renting out a hole-in-the-wall mexican restaurant. How can you go wrong with mexican? 🙂

I think fajitas and tacos would be easier to eat while standing, but discounts are good too! Counting in the potential discount on BBQ, will there be a significant price difference in the two options?

They both sound amazing! Did you see Mrs. Cheese’s reception food? She actually managed to take pulled pork and turn them into either American OR Mexican (torta) selections! That might be a great compromise between Mexican and American! Check it out here:

The Mexican menu hands down.

@DewDrop…we could potentially get the BBQ for free, but will probably get it at cost. The Mexican would be around $15-$20 a person plus taxes, service charge and delivery. The BBQ is hands down the better deal.

I’m hungry now.
I voted BBQ. It’s always a big hit and if you can get a discount-bonus!
