Last week, with help, I fed 100 folks a good Indian dinner. I had trouble pulling off a simple cook out for thirty this go round! #3 always check your gas! Yes, I ran out of grill gas half way through the cooking! Luckily Dahn had parked on the street and Neil could get her car out to go to the MMM and get a new one in a flash. No one really seemed to even notice! Except the new container was MUCH more pumped up or something and the fire ran really hot, more than a few burnt hot dogs. There were some starters there in the tool shed, hummus , made with mostly the liquid from the canned beans and not so much olive oil - making it very light, veggies, crackers and eggs....
And, not enough WHITE HOTS.... ( it's a Rochester thing.....)
People brought some little sweet treats, the brownies are Orange flavored, and were just lovely and the cake is rhubarb - which I had never had and it was VERY good. For once I made close to exactly the right amount of food!
JUMBO FROZEN KEY LIME PIE
This is a fantastic concept for a warm weather large party dessert, that failed a little here.
It is your basic klp , I use Ina Garten's, with some modifications, but I needed it for a crowd. I think in my head i was going to cut this like cake or brownies and serve.. not so much
all in all despite the minor mishaps, everyone seemed to have a very nice time.
