I had to chuckle when I read this thread. I saw large groups and thought it would be something like cooking for 50-100 people. I guess large is relative! My mom used to cook for that many every day. Some of the things she taught me to make I cannot make in smaller quantities either.

Don't have much advice that hasn't already been given. Good luck and hope you enjoy it.

I like the suggestions of casseroles, lasagna, any pasta with sauce and most of all the Crock Pot. If you have one, or can get one, it will be your friend. Just make sure it's large enough..no less than 6 quarts.

Wait a minute, you going to have 7 adults cooking, or cooking for 7 adults? Because 7 adults is not anywhere close to be a large group, not even medium, not even mediocre. 7 would be considering small group. And it is not much different than cooking for 1. Just multiply everything by 7. Grill hamburgers, have bunch of sides make a self-serving bar, some chips, you are done. Ground meat is pretty cheap so is shredded lettuce and some cheese, sliced mushrooms, maybe some avocadoes.
