In the Kitchen with Linda & Dinner Menu

I spent last week in the kitchen getting ready for a huge spaghetti dinner fundraiser that we hosted. My daughter is raising money for her mission trip this summer.  I made all the food for 200 people!

In the Kitchen with Linda & Dinner Menu


I planned on having 200 people, so I made 40 pounds of spaghetti, 93 1/2 cups of spaghetti meat sauce, and 44 cups of Cincinnati Chili.

This is what 40 pounds of cooked spaghetti looks like. That’s 18 gallon freezer bags full!

I was thankful that our church had several of these big electric roasting pans that I was able to use. I didn’t have to use a million slow cookers. lol

We did have a lot of leftovers, so I put sauce on the spaghetti, and put it in the freezer.

A post is coming soon on how to plan and execute a fundraiser spaghetti dinner!


Now…. to answer the question that I get asked about a hundred times a day……….What’s For Dinner?

Saturday – quick & easy- Take out pizza, because the family didn’t want to cook!

Sunday – soup & sandwich day – Spaghetti dinner at church for lunch, then leftover spaghetti for supper

Monday – chicken – Cookout! hamburgers, and bison burgers! And leftover salad The non adventurous girls, (including me!) will be having sloppy joes instead of bison!

Tuesday – pizza/pasta – Roasted turkey, rice, beets

Wednesday – beef – Spaghetti, lol, with garlic bread, broccoli

Thursday – chicken – Roasted Turkey, gravy, twice baked potatoes from the freezer, green beans

Friday beef – Venison, potatoes and carrots in the slow cooker
