With loins on sale--BIG DINNER..for me...
Saturday night is my semi-annual dinner I cook for a club I belong to. Generally our socials are pretty simple dinners. When it's my turn in the kitchen I have been turning up the quality.
Last time I did the pork loin roulade with baked sweet potatoes. This time I am going for my Czech pork loin with dumplings, potatoes, carrots. A nice side salad, probably some cole slaw then cakes for desert (I can bake a cake, pastries are not a strong suit). Besides, I am cooking for up to 60 and will have enough to do with just the pork.
With the price of pork down right now, I am figuring cost on production for the entire meal to be under $2 per person. I should have no problem making a profit for the club at $6 per head..
We never know how many will show up. I have only goofed once and not had enough food. Never again... there will be leftovers. Oh, the meal I ran out.... Beef stew on Biscuits. 50 people ate two 18 qt roasters full to the brim of stew.. it was good ...
