Question: Any ideas on how to feed 13 people for cheap!?
Im having a party and I need some ideas on how I can feed 13 people for cheap, Pat & Oscars want to charge $10 per person which I think is way ridiculous especially since I have purchased a full meal for myself for only $5 there!.!.!.!.!.!.!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Have them all bring the food!. You don't have to pay anything!Www@FoodAQ@Com

You should supply the main dish and have your guests bring sides, desserts, and drinks!. They can sign up for them on a list--some hot and some cold!. Then you can either save the money for making a nice big dinner yourself (whatever you have in mind) or you can order out, but you won't need to order so much as your guests will be supplying the rest!. It takes some of the pressure off you, as they will all be bringing something individually and will have fun discussing what they brought and how they made it, etc!.

Otherwise, think like you're on a budget!. Buy ingredients for a salad and a lot of meat!. Chicken is cheap!. Buy a few of those and prepare it to your liking!. Beef is the same way!. Vegetables and fruits can be spread, and pasta is probably the cheapest and most filling crowd-pleaser there is!. Be creative, set your budget, and stick to it!. Good luck with your party!Www@FoodAQ@Com
