Students visit

We had twenty-six people over for lunch today. I know you are all passionately interested in domestic things, so here's the menu of our meal which we spent several hours slaving over:
  • 6 pounds of Spaghetti noodles
  • I'm guessing somewhere around two gallons of spaghetti sauce(That's just a rough guess), divided into two crock-pots, one pot being meatless and the other with hamburger.
  • eleven loaves of garlic bread, no we did not make the bread, we just bought frozen garlic bread.
  • Four packages of store-bought cookies, eighteen homemade cupcakes, and one cake that didn't bake in the middle and I don't know why so we didn't eat it. I feel ashamed that with all my years experience in baking that this cake didn't turn out, but we all need to be humbled now and then, right?
  • Several ice cream buckets of lettuce salad and two jars of home-made ranch dressing
  • A gallon of lemonade and a gallon of mint tea
Everything went well, the toilet didn't overflow, and we had some good discussions. Now we need to rest up and get ready for the potluck tonight!

That's a lot of food! It reminds me of the times we've had home church with almost 40-50 people at our house, or family reunions with extended family.

I know all about humbling cooking experiences! They always seem to happen when you're making it for company... You're right, it keeps us humble! =)
