Hi…my name is Gina, and I can’t say “NO”. Five months ago a friend of my brother’s asked me to cater her wedding. With the Europe trip looming, and spending money depleting, I crazily said “Absolutely”. Was I nuts???

What was even more crazy??? The budget. $700

I promised nothing. Certainly not a gourmet meal. I did it though. And I did it by myself. I’m exhausted. I’m so tired my eyelids are drooping….I have aches in muscles I didn’t even know I had.
I’m really not proud of the meal…as it was pretty much all out-of-a-box/can made, but it did get the job done. And everyone loved the food. And they were amazed that I made 600 ham sandwiches by myself. What else could you expect from $700?
The experience did leave me interested in catering more than ever. I do think it’s something I’d be excellent at, given the time, experience and funds.
Menu for 200:
Au Gratin Potatoes
BBQ & SS Meatballs
Ham & Turkey Sandwiches
Pickle & Olive Platters
