|This was just one of the 4 Costco carts and 2 big orange things we filled up.|
Funny thing, I never really got nervous, just excited. This just felt right.
|Then we roasted and shredded....all day.|
|Lots of chopping, 60lbs mushrooms and about 80 large onions. Oh and I almost forgot the 300 or so cloves of garlic.|
We hand chopped all of it...I didn't even think about my food processor until we were almost done!! Live and learn.
|I can't tell you how awesome it was to have more help in the kitchen, especially all of these girls. Everyone sort of just took on a roll and everything ran smoothly!|
|What a blessing it is to work with your hands, and to prepare food for people who volunteer their time to help others.|
|Well, almost done, just bake and dress the salad...oh and serve! Did I mention we only had 3 working ovens and around 60 loafs of bread to cook too? Along with all of those casseroles? And I thought we would run out of food!|
|I just had to add a touch of cuteness!! This sign was at the beginning of the buffet line. At the end by the drinks was a little chalkboard rooster that said enjoy!|
Time for the moment of truth...did it taste good??
|Of course it did!! We made it:) And I made sure we tasted each pan that came out of the oven.|
CHEERS!! Thank you ladies from the bottom of my heart...I couldn't have done it with out each of you.
|All in all it was a huge success. I was so happy to have taken on this challenge and prove to myself that with a little determination and a few good friends almost anything is possible. I'd say we were the perfect team.|
Maybe...I guess I will just have to wait and see. After all,with God anything is possible.
So for now I think I'll dream big.
