Well, it looks like I have to plan another luncheon. I did this years ago when we were a larger company. However, it has been years.
Here is what I've got so far for 40 - 60 people.
Tons of different salads with dressings in containers. I have a variety of dressings ranging from full fat blue and Italian to low/no fat. There will be some mixed fruit for dessert or salad if they want. The dressings will be bottled and put into a container. Some of the people are keeping logs, so I want to be able to provide the numbers or at least the brand for them.
Breads ranging from sourdough to multigrain. There will be rolls as well as sliced. Again, I'm buying it so I can have the numbers available.
A meat platter with ham, turkey, roast beast and many different types of cheese.
Condiments include full fat mayo as well as low fat may, several different types of mustard, relishes and oil and vinegar. This is incase someone wants to make a sandwich. Buying these as well.
There will be pizza as well. Combo, pepperoni and several veggie pizzas. Some of the pizzas will not have cheese, especially the veggie ones. I'm getting these from Amici's. Not only do they taste good, but I can get the numbers for them.
Fruit in various forms. I will slice the oranges but leave apples and bananas whole. I don't want them to turn colors and some of us don't like them dipped in lemon juice. Grapes of all colors, but seedless.
Desserts - chocolate of course. But there will be some ice cream and some frozen fruit sorbets for the vegetarians and lacto intolerant people. Fruit can serve as dessert as well. Cookies and some various cakes that I will buy so I have the numbers.
There will be coffee, hot and iced tea, diet and regular soda and bottled water.
Have I missed anything?
