Recommended menu for hosting my son's hockey team's holiday party?

I need lunch for the 13 kids on the team, plus 26 adults and who knows how many siblings! Thanks!

What ages for the kids? Meat balls and pasta. Swedish meat balls maybe with the creme sauce.
A quiche with greens and onions.
A vegie tray with hummus, and other dips. Pita Bread.
Salad with dressing choices. Cheese plate with crackers and good bread.
Hummm..Holiday? Ham--but you would need a Kosher option.
Roast beef, boiled shrimp (cocktail sauce).
Fruit salad..a fruit based desert, or Banana Pudding, or pies.
An Asian style stir fry would keep well on a steam table, with lettuce wraps.

mac n cheese, meatloaf, french fries, onion rings, ice cream/milk shakes and cookies for dessert.

Or make it easy and do wraps for everyone!

Or be real lazy and order pizza!

Good luck!

How about trays of home-made baked ziti and turkey sausages with peppers & onions, garlic bread and a big ceasar salad. Italian ices and some cakes for dessert.

Pulled pork. It stays warm in the crock pot through out the party and can be made the day before. Cornbread, salad, cookies, brownies . Let people bring something

Buy a bunch of skirt steak and trim it into rounds and then over cook them until they are the texture of hockey pucks. This is easier than it sounds---I've seen it done before. Hockey players are a hungry lot so make sure there is enough food. Go Blackhawks!

Whatever you come up with make life easy for yourself...a casserole and salad. I also agree all kids and adults like spaghetti and meatballs!

How about American chop suey? IPeople seem to love it--even adults---can do a big pot for meat eaters and another big pot for the vegetarians. And salad.
