- 50 RSVP's, 100 guests in attendance
- More food than I care to calculate at this point. We were in the kitchen for two very long days.
- 64 beers, 8L of Cuban Sangria, 4.5L red wine, 3L white wine, 1.5L rum, 1L vodka, 6L bottled water
- Total collected: $3,448
- And one mountain of dishes to clean (the dishwasher is running)...
Another two hours in the kitchen and the dishes are finally done. Funny how I made it through two frenetic days of chopping and slicing only to cut my thumb while washing a pot lid. Here is the food and leftover tally for anyone who cares:
|Dish||Qty Made||Qty Left|
|Moussaka||3 pans||3/4 pan|
|Spanikopita||68 pieces||10 pieces|
|Greek Salad||20 pounds||2 pounds|
|Plaki (baked fish)||3 pans||1/2 pan|
|Marinated Olives||3 cups||1/2 cup|
|Lamb with orzo pasta||9 quarts||2 quarts|
|Baked Lima Beans||9 quarts||3 quarts|
|Greek Potatoes||15 pounds||1/2 pound|
|Greek Chicken||20 pounds||none|
|Beet Salad||10 cups||2 cups|
Overall we're extremely pleased with the turnout and everyone's generosity. I only had one snippy semi-meltdown yesterday, after grilling chicken for three hours, which is a tremendous improvement. With everything else positive going on right now I just couldn't get too upset about the things I couldn't control.
