If you have a crowd of friends that are coming to your home on short notice, it will be difficult to put a meal together for everyone. Fortunately, there are ways you can make things go much easier for you, and keep your friends happy. Keep reading and you will have a great get together.
Feed Them Pizza
Pizza is one of the easiest things you can do to feed a crowd of people. Simply call up your local pizza restaurant and have several pizzas delivered to your door. You should call the restaurant as soon as you know people are coming because it is a large order.
If you want to make things fun, have a pizza party. You could purchase pre-made crust and put pizza sauce on each crust. Set out pizza toppings, such as sausage, pepperoni, cheese, and more. You could also put out some pineapple so people can make a Hawaiian pizza, or some strips of chicken. Anything that you can eat can be put on a pizza, even macaroni and cheese. While everyone is making their pizza, you can all talk and have a drink and turn this into a fun party.
If you choose to have the pizza delivered to you, the pizza restaurant likely has some other options other than the standard pizza choices, such as desert pizza, barbecue pizza, and more.
Ask the pizza restaurant if they have gluten free pizza just in case any of your friends are allergic to gluten. If there are not, the pizza will still taste good to everyone anyway.
Have a Taco Bar
Tacos are easy to make and something you could put together quick, even if you have to run to the store to buy a few things. Set hard and soft shells on a table, set bowls of meat, such as taco spiced chicken and hamburger, next to the shells, and then all the toppings. Choose toppings like cheese, tomatoes, lettuce, Pico de Gallo, sour cream, and guacamole. Taco potatoes is another idea and most people love this dish. It is also something a little different than tacos and is easy to make.
Next to the taco bar put a nacho bar with some tortilla chips, salsa, and cheese sauce. If there are kids coming to your home they will especially have fun making tacos and nachos.
It can be stressful feeding a large crowd of people but following these two tips should help you get the dinner done so you can enjoy spending time with your friends.
