@voce For Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve I usually average 28 which includes my husband, kids, mom, siblings, nieces, nephews along with their spouses and kids. The guest count is closer to 35 if everyone attends and significant others attend. Other events vary.Really, so many? How many people do you cook for?
I don’t usually cook for everyone. I use the assistance of my local restaurants and grocery stores. I usually prepare 1/2 the meal and I start preparing days in advance. I have no stress (well, maybe a little sometimes), I love to entertain.
