Meal Planning for Large Groups

Meal Planning

Meal planning for large groups can be a daunting task. To make it easier, start by creating a meal plan for the week. Decide on a menu for each day, calculate the number of servings needed for each meal, and make a grocery list of ingredients. Then, shop for groceries, making sure to purchase all necessary ingredients, check expiration dates, and get enough for leftovers. Once the ingredients are ready, preheat ovens and other cooking appliances, chop, dice, and prepare ingredients, and cook meals according to recipes. When it's time to serve the meals, set up a buffet or individual plates, make sure all food is served at the correct temperature, and ensure that all dietary restrictions are met. Finally, clean up by washing all dishes and utensils, wiping down counters and surfaces, and putting away all leftovers. With these steps, meal planning for large groups can be a breeze.
