    If they did not teach you how to cost out a simple meal in school, then ask for your money back.

    Are you cooking for this group for the cost of goods only, or are you charging for your time also?

    You should have had a head count by Monday, is it 25 or 50? How are you supposed to know how much food to buy and prepare?
