I tend to agree.  Light quick meals are the way to go.   When we have went to the beach in the past the last night there was a "must go" meal.  We reheated all the leftovers and what wasn't eaten was thrown away....LOL>

 Preparing a meal is going to be a lot of work, for that many people, I'm good with anything, and  will do what the majority want, But I am holding you to a seafood dinner also LOL

It really isn't any harder to prepare for 25 then it is for 6....which is what I cook for every night.   Once you determine the amt of supplies you need the cooking really isn't that tough.

Nana, it has been so long since I have cooked for a large number of people, It took me forever to figure out how to cook for just 2 LOL. I could make everyone Cashew Chicken with Fried Rice one night.

Kris and Darlene, how are your hubbies feeling about this?

I haven't spoken to him about the retreat at all except to ask if he wants to come. I don't think he'll mind helping out. I am not a cook so I'm not sure how I will contribute. I was thinking I could donate some money towards food.

Simple foods are great for me. I bought some things at the grocery store in Washington and had lunch outside once. Breakfast was a bagel and a cup of tea. I grazed on chips and other salty foods most of the day. I had a really bad bellyache the first few days I was there.

Nana,it worries me that you have not received our check yet. According to the bank it should have reached you by the 28th. Hopefully you'll have it tomorrow.

Nana, I totally agree.  My parents owned a tavern/restaraunt for 11 years and I struggle more with cooking for 3 than with cooking for 25.

I think the planning is going well and finally got to the website to check out the house.  Great choice.  Is it April yet????  There I go, wishing my life away again.

Better rob a bank, I checked the prices of the Seafood Restaurants there and you can't get much for under $20.00 a person. Too rich for my blood. Wonder if they have a Long John Silvers or Cap'n D's? lol  I can remember visiting Baltimore, MD, years and years ago, and getting blue crab, all cooked, from a street vendor for a couple bucks. Those days are over.

Joni...that's why we are doing our own name tags. I'm really bad with names too so everyone has to wear one at all times please...otherwise, your name will be "honey" or "sweetie". lol
