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!
Does anyone else work with an inconsiderate jerk that is too lazy to practice good public eating habits? Maybe they insist on reheating fish in the company microwave everyday, or perhaps you have a lunch thief, or maybe you've got one of these:
The Audible Eater: This particular jerk talks to himself constantly throughout the day, but especially at lunch. He'll 'hmm' and 'aw' at whatever the heck he's reading online, and remark on the inadequacy of his meal. However, what really gets me is that he chews with his mouth open, smacking his lips and making me cringe with disgust. Then every single day after he finishes masticating his feed bag he'll whip out a pack of those super hard pretzels, takes him about 20 minutes to gnaw his way through them. All of it drives me crazy, I can't explain it and I can't escape it.
Please share so I can silently laugh myself through this unending day.
