Need Recommendations: Cooking for 12 in Florida Keys
I've got a few ideas, but want to know what all you fabulous people think.
The hubs and I get to tag along with his parents on a week long vacation to the Florida Keys. 8 other family members will be there as well. We are staying in a rented house, so there will be a fully functional kitchen, and hopefully a grill.
His parents wouldn't accept any money from us toward the rental, and suggested that instead we either take everyone out to eat or make a meal one night. I'd rather do the cooking option, as we are not flush with cash right now.
So, what would you suggest as a meal for 12 mostly southerners, keeping cost under $175. There will be plenty of seafood other nights, so this is not a requirement. My mother-in-law specifically requested my mango salsa, so that will be one element. I am very good in the kitchen, don't need beginner stuff.
Thanks in advance!
