A question of quantity...and sanity
Ok this sounds crazy to me but I'm going to ask anyway. My sister is getting married next fall and for the reception is asking that people not bring gifts but instead bring a dish to share. She really wants it to be a "down home family affair" They are planning on providing turkey, ham and a pasta dish for sure and beverages. She is inviting about 200 and I was considering offering to bring the bread. (That's the crazy part there.) I fully expect it is more than I can handle but if you could tell me how much bread would be needed I could look at it more rationally. ( I know it would be easier to just buy it but she she's trying to make everything so handmade and homespun I thought I could try.) I am good at basic bread, nothing fancy. I was thinking some nice herb breads in rustic rounds or a basic loaf pan. I appreciate any advice. i have never baked bread in large quantities before.
(good grief just typing that makes me feel crazy)
