100 years

Juergen is 51 and I'm 49 years old. We want to have a 100Th birthday party together. I don't have the date yet, but I'm working on a menu for a small crowd of 100 or so people. I was thinking chicken and rice, beans, salad, fresh fruit, a corn zucchini casserole, tortilla chips, salsa and guacamole and a desert of some sort. Maybe I'll even ask some friends to bring desert. I like the Mexican direction. I wanted dishes that are not too hard to cook, and easy to cook for large amounts of people. What do you think? I also need to be able to buy the food in Germany. I have to keep that in mind.

This is from

Chicken and Rice

This is for 6 people
1 whole chicken, cut in serving pieces
salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste
2 tbsp olive oil
1 onion, diced
1 tbsp cumin
2 tbsp smoked paprika
4 cloves garlic, sliced thin
1/3 cup sliced green olives
2 tbsp capers
1 tsp dried oregano
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1 red bell pepper, diced
1 green bell pepper, diced
2 tsp sugar
2 tsp kosher salt (or 1 1/2 tsp fine table salt)
1/4 cup tomato paste
2 cups white long grain rice
4 cups chicken broth

so this recipy times what? 15 or 20? I mean if you are cooking for 100 to 120 peple?

das reicht höchstens für vier bis fünf Leute, würde ich sagen. Bei vier Leuten ist es ein viertel Huhn und eine halbe Tasse Reis, eine normale Portion.
