What are finger rolls? People love meatballs, that doesn't seem like it is enough.

you sound set for about 25, but not 40

and some of your items are just way off... 2 bags of chips? 1/2 sheet cake?  you're feeding 40, not 10.

Yeah i was thinking more meatballs, thats easy.

Finger rolls are small rolls. For sandwuches and meatballs.

I think that you need more meatballs and wine. Also, is it possible for you to do a veggie tray because it seems to be heavy on meats and starch.

Are all your friends fat?

A half sheet feeds 50, a full 100.

And the chips are just filler.

How do you figure this will only feed 25?, lol.

I'd up the amounts of wine, cake, chips, dip and rolls (if they're small). Also, double check with whoever is bringing food on the amounts.

People, in my experience, LOVE to eat at parties. We always go through an insane amount of food.
