And, whew, done!!!

We finished just now. 10:30-7:45 is quite a day! (That's not including shopping or Hanna's prep time, see below.) We loved the mandatory togetherness though- it has been YEARS since we had spent so much time together.

8 meat loaves,
2 chicken cacciatores
120 meatballs
12 honey marinated pork chops
2 big portion beef stroganoffs
4 portions apricot chicken tenders
4 portions chicken tortilla soup
1.5 chicken Leilani casseroles for each of us (a biggun and a mini)
7 chicken pot pies

Cooks' notes:
Hanna prepped and bought most of the veggies yesterday which was a HUGE help.
Next time I'll try and cook/pull/chop/or shred chicken the night before.
Hanna's going to bring her biggest crawfish boil style pots.
We think we could work in a 3rd cook if we pre-plan jobs/roles.
Meatballs first next time for flash freezing purposes.
Plan on 2 coolers worth of food per cook.

A great day and tons of food to eat! Yahoooooo!!! :)

Oh, and next time an apron would be a good idea.... ;)
