Party for 40, is my shopping list OK?
I'm cooking for my friend's daughter's 2nd birthday party. They're expecting about 40 people total, but I think that includes the little kids showing up. They want brisket, pulled pork, baked beans
and mac & cheese. They're handling food for the little kids as well as veggies/salads/extra sides.
Here's what I'm gonna pick up tonight unless someone chimes in that it isn't enough.
1 large packer (14lbs or more?)
2-4 butts (shooting for 25-30lbs uncooked)
4lbs dried pasta for homemade mac & cheese
7-10lbs canned pork and beans (to be doctored, probably into Keri's Hog Apple)
Am I looking OK or will I need more?
