Wednesday photo: Food for 700

A couple weeks ago I was invited to a teacher’s retirement party. I ended up in the kitchen helping out, because you can always use two more hands when you are feeding 700 people. 


This make is filling a trash can with cooked rice.


Don’t be fooled by the lack of scale in this photo. There were about 50 drumsticks being fried inside.

We filled 600 clam shell take-away boxes for 300 students and one family member with seven foods. The special guests were served about 20 foods from chafing dishes.  I thought feeding 100 or so people for the Fourth of July was intense, but this was a whole different ballgame.
