Annual Club Mens Meeting- Free Food!

Last night was our club's once-a-year induction of new members. There is a usually a little, humiliating task they have to do- all in good fun! I have gotten into a tradition of fixing free food for the guys after the meeting is over. Free means the club pays for the food, but my buddy and I will fix and serve it, with clean-up afterward. We anticipated about 100 people, and made 17 large pizzas, which should have been enough. 125 guys showed up, some only for the free food! We could only do 8 pizzas at a time in the clubs ovens, so we had to time everything like a space mission! We bought Papa Murphys take u bake cheese pizzas, then added our 4lbs. of sausage, 3lbs. of pepperoni, 5lbs. of sliced mushrooms, 4 chopped green peppers, and 4 chopped Vidalia onions. Came out great- and everyone was trying to figure out where we got such good pizzas! I wish I had a picture of those pizzas, all prepped to go into the ovens- it took up the entire 3' x 12' foot stainless table in the kitchen! As always, too much work for too little praise... Give people free food and there are always jerks who say stuff like this; "Is it all gone?" "Can I take some home?", "I don't like mushrooms", "My wifes here, can she have some?" Many of the older members came and thanked us- mainly because they had volunteered in the past- and knew how much work we had done...

I want that for breakfast...now! I'm hungry.. ;-)

So I gather this "humilating task" is a secret???

You did a nice thing by fixing all those pizzas. But I would come just for the food too if I knew you were preparing it!!!

Peace

Some people have no manners and no common sense.

I can only imagine how could that freaking pizza was!!!!

And I would have offered to help.

I hate to say it, but I just can't stand giving out anything for free because free usually attracts the kind of people that I avoid.

How lucky they were to have you in the kitchen! And good idea about the Papa Murphy's pizzas.

Leighann said...

That sounds yummy! Um.... is it all gone? :p

That was great of you to put it all together like that!

Some folk are just never satisfied are they? The pizzas sound great and I'm not a pizza fan. :)
