I'm hosting a soul food barbecue for 25.The menu includes Barbecue Ribs and Chicken Mac&Cheese Mustard & Turnips Greens Potato Salad and Corn Bread.
How many bunches of greens would I use?(I will be using fresh greens)Most people will eat ribs and chicken.how much of each? how much mac & cheese? The 25 guests include 5 children but the adults are big eaters.
Thanks in advance.

Hello again, LaWanda,
1/2 pound ribs plus 1 quarter chicken per person. For the greens use 1/4 the amount on the plan for 100 table for vegetables at the bottom of the plan for 100 page. 3 9x13 pans of mac and cheese- that is about 3 pounds of pasta. I would o half turnip or mustard and separately half collards, which have a milder flavor, unless you are sure of the taste preference of your group.

2 or 3 9x13 of squash casserole would be delicious with this.
