If I had to cook for all those people, I'd do a taco buffet. Just cook up the taco meat, and they can assemble their own. Put the shells/tortillas in a warmer, and have containers of cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream, salsa, beans, rice. If steak's in the budget, could do steak tacos.

I can eat Mexican food everyday. Yum.

Thank you. You are too kind.

People did enjoy the food, if I may say so, food was good. Made me happy. The person I was helping though works very hard, he can never make food taste good. No seasoning, nothing.

Downside. I am still exhausted, even today. 100 people is a lot of work.

You are what you eat.

Ask them to pay for your time as well as the ingredients - that usually stops them!

The last time I did a big buffet (149 mixed vegetarians and carnivores) the carnivores complained that the food was "all" for vegetarians and the vegetarians complained that the food was "all" for carnivores!!!!

I declined the next time I was asked by that group.

Donít look for the light at the end of the tunnel. Stomp along and switch the bl**dy thing on yourself.
