family meals: week 64

March 2, 2014

family mealsfamily mealsSpicy Kimchi Soup. I was going to make noodles, but I wasn’t feeling well this day, so I made soup instead. Thankfully, it was just a one day bug and I was back to normal on Tuesday, but then Ben got the one day bug. I used soba noodles instead of udon and it was still yummy, and this time whole wheat. Ben liked it a whole lot more that way.

I made this for our dinner club on Thursday and I always get nervous because I’m never sure if I make enough. It’s also because I never know who’s going to show up! We definitely had enough, with plenty remaining for leftovers.

Week of 3/3 – 3/7
Monday: Bossam (didn’t get to make it last week)
Tuesday: Crunchy Turkey Kimchi Burgers
Wednesday: Leftovers
Thursday: Rosemary White Bean Soup
Friday: Sushi/pizza night

What are some of your go-to dishes to make for a group of 10-12 people? I’m kind of stuck on ideas. I want something yummy, healthy, but still affordable to feed a big group! Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

    I have a huge family and our go to meal for entertaining is a taco bar. We prep over a few days, cutting tomatoes, making guacamole, shredded lettuce, making refried beans, etc. and slow cook a pork butt the entire day to make carnitas. It is a fun, informal, and relaxed way to entertain. My husband and I actually have the opportunity to visit with everyone, as opposed to spend the entire time in the kitchen. Good luck!

      Would you recommend this for a weekly dinner for 10-12 people? It definitely sounds fun and delish!

        Or you could do a taco soup! Any type of meat, water, seasoning, garlic, tomatoes, peppers, onions (or you can throw in salsa). Top with cheese, sour cream, and crushed tortillas!
