Thank you so much. Your help in invaluable. Everything seems to make sense, except the bottom
Thus you need to buy at least 10 pounds of trimmed tri-tip and 11 pounds of boneless chicken. This would be for full sides or sandwiches. If you are doing a meat and two meal, with say beans and slaw, tack on another 4 to 5 pounds to the meat order.
Could you clarify "full sides"? Im guessing that "a meat and two meal" is a meat and 2 sides..?? Why am I adding more meat if I am having 2 sides...?? I must be misunderstanding..
Also, is there a general "rule of thumb" for sides? Rice Pilaf and Green beans?
Thank you again!!
