I’ve read this thread:
Here is my situation. This Saturday (Feb 8,2014) my board gaming group is having all day game day (9AM-9PM or so). People are encouraged (but not required) to bring food to share. I usually make something more substantial. This is so I do not eat chips and cookies all day. In the past I have brought:
Cheddar Potato Soup
Twice baked potatoes
Soft pretzels (with cheese sauce)
One of the members is a vegetarian (which is why there is a lot of cheese and potato stuff) but she will not be there. Someone who is deathly allergic to pork will be.
Since I can bring meat, I was thinking slow roasted (crock pot) beef. But I’d like to stretch that. The obvious answer is sandwiches or a pot roast, but any other ideas appreciated. One idea is to cook the beef overnight then stuff pastry shells and bake in the morning.
There will be about 16 people - though all may not partake in what I make (and some will have seconds)
