Can you cook the chicken/shrimp roll-ups at the hall? This a LOT of prep work - how much help do you have?
Not only is there a stove, oven, and huge refrigerator, we are taking a toaster oven and microwave oven with us. I am also taking a very large warmer, several crockpots, and several steno...whatchamacallits to help keep food warm.
Thank goodness for taste testing. My sister tried the 3 appetizers again last night after they had sat in the frig since Sunday and after reheating them found that the bacon recipe ended up being extremely greasy so that one is out. The shrimp appy is also out because the celery and onion overpowered the shrimp and my sis said it tasted awful. The chicken was good hot, warm & cold, and even right from the frig, so it is still going to be made. :) I have 40 lbs of chicken that I am planning on cooking and once it is gone, too bad, so sad. I refuse to clean any more than that. We are going to have sooooo many appys that I doubt once they are gone, anybody will still be hungry.
