Birthday Party Meal Ideas

abe1329 Sep 8, 2006 12:04 AM

Anyone have an idea for me...I need to serve lunch this Sunday at 11:30AM to about 25 adults and 15 toddlers. My budget is small. Looking for something simple and easy to clean up with minimal work for me. Originally I was thinking pizza (to be delivered) and fruit and veggie platters (from Costco). I'd love any different idea. I know this is a silly question as everyone has diffferent taste, but I'd like to just come up with a meal and be done with thinking about this. THANKS.

    Try take out from Gooood Frickin Chicken on 29th and Mission. Not only do they have great chicken, they will cut it up for you (each whole chick is about $12. and serves 3/4) it comes with terrfic sides that everyone will love. Also don't forget to get the bread and garlic spread. Fabulous! Whole meals with salad and sides are very reasonably priced.

      Chinese from a chinese deli (Marina Market). I got a large pan (steam table pan) of chow mein, and different sides, fried chicken legs, roast pork, chicken salad for around $50, I think. I also got a 1/2 sheet chinese bakery cake w/whipped cream frosting, for about $30, but costco makes a good cake.
