    I'm trying to plan a menu for a reunion that will only cost $15.00-$17.00 per person but will still impress. Some sort of chicken dish, beef dish, vegetable, starch, and salad(s). Any ideas? I'm open to most anything creative, and am in a creative block myself! Please help.

    Does this include only the food cost?

    Or will you have to pay for labor, kitchen rental, tableware rentals, buffet table rentals, etc., out of the per person amount?

    Confuzzled....

    so youre trying to plan an impressive menu that someone else will  be hired to

    propose and execute? Or one that you will be prepping/cooking/serving yourself?

    budget beef dish.....brisket, or pasta with beef....mostaccoli with beef

    salad...depends on time of year, but mandrian oranges & crasins give a big bang for little $

    potatoes always popular
