What a weekend! It all started Friday…
And Draw Prizes…
Then I had a night of planning, where in I had to calculate food for 80ish people!
Get up ridiculously early on Saturday to go pick up said groceries. 9am we headed out to Costco and Superstore.
Come back for a “rest” where in some more questions/problems and other such rest disturbing occurrences occurred.
Then got decorating!
Look at this fridge!
Yes the vegetarian had to cook some meat. Ew! It was so beefy-juice. Ick.
I totally got busy and didn’t take photos of the end products! Oh well. Here’s what was on the Fiesta Menu:
- Tortilla chips
- Salsa, gaucamole, hummus, and 7-layer dip.
- Cut up veggies
- Build your own Burrito:
- beef, or refried beans (both made from scratch!)
- sour cream
- Mexican-style Rice
- Ice cream sundaes
- Virgin Margaritas
This was the most successful event I’ve been a part of. We had 80 people total, and Rits is a small dorm (only roughly 200-300 people), so that’s a huge number of people.
I had been stressing big time about getting enough food, especially since it was so many more people then we’d anticipated. But it all worked out. We had extras of the rice, and toppings really. Oh and Ice cream, but that we can just use for another rits event! So it all worked out in the end.
And of course there was a wee after party.
I’m definitely having trouble getting anything done today though. :p Oh well. I’ll try and get some things done today, so they’re just out of the way for later this week I think. In other words, do the stuff that only needs half my mind.
Till later this week all!
