Casual evening outdoor wedding reception...

Could be an appropriate time for a potluck dinner?

I am currently planning my wedding as well and although I love to cook. Everyone has cautioned against trying to make the meal myself. (I've never cooked for 80 people so I didn't really want to try.) There is just generally too much going on that day to try to do it yourself.

If you are trying to give caterers ideas, start with exactly the description you gave us and they may have some good ideas. You could just do a whole bunch of appetizers instead of a full meal. or you could do custom panini stations.

I think it's great that you guys are doing some testing! If I was in NYC (and not a usability researcher myself) I would totally sign up. Good luck!

What Foods Have Been Ruined?

Kraft Processed Cheese slices and wonder bread.
Used to be the perfect comfort food grilled cheese but now I can't bring myself to buy either of them. As well as the green can parmesan cheese. Can't do it.

pizza math: 1/4, 1/6. or 1/8?

I used to work at a pizza place and one summer we changed the way we sliced pizza. Originally our 12in pizza was cut into 8 slices, we changed it to 12in cut into 6... I'm not sure why the change was made but we were told to do it. So many of the customers freaked out about it and it was impossible to explain that you were getting the same amount of pizza just larger slices. But when someone calls up they can't picture how big a 12in pizza is and only want to order by number of slices. It just never made any sense to me.

I think the 9in by 4, 12in by 6 and 15in by 8 still makes the most sense to me.
