Seeking suggestions for menu ideas for feeding a film crew for an all day shoot.

My husband and I own a small business that is rapidly growing. We have hired a video artist/producer/director to produce short informational videos about our product to expand our YouTube channel and social media presence. The first shoot is this Saturday. The director asked that we don’t take off site breakfast/lunch/coffee breaks so I will need to provide food and beverages for the production people and our staff to graze on throughout the day - 7 men and me. The guys on my staff are eaters! No vegetarians, vegans or gluten issues...just the director who says he doesn’t eat a lot of carbs. I have a small kitchen at our shop including a full sized fridge and gas stove. I entertain quite often at home but for some reason, this project has me flummoxed on what to do for this spread. I want to have fun with it. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance.



UPDATE: We're still on site with the film crew. It has been a long day and my job as caterer is almost done. I have a couple more takes for my part in the video and then I'll start cleaning up. Thanks to all of you who gave me great suggestions. Here's the menu I went with:

Breakfast: Cinnamon swirl wheat bread, bacon knots, egg, sausage and cheese burritos, fresh strawberries, bananas, coffee, tea and warm cider.

Lunch: Green enchilada chicken soup (topped with jack cheese, tortilla strips, jalapenos, cilantro and sour cream). Taquitos, guacamole, salsa and chips, sliced veggies. Fruit seltzer water, Kombucha tea, various sodas. Macaroons and chocolate chip cookies.

Afternoon snack: Veggies and hummus, cheese and crackers, apple slices, cheddar cheese bread sticks, cookies from lunch.

Looks like the kegerator is seeing some action...

Women Mushers Sweep Montana Race To The Sky.

Jessie Royer of Seeley Lake won the 300-mile Montana Race to the Sky Monday night, building on her legacy as the musher with the most wins in the annual sled dog race.


Royer started her winning career in the Race to the Sky in 1994 at age 17 and continued with wins in 2015, 2016 and 2018. She still holds the record for youngest champion from her 1994 win. Seven of the last eight champions were also women.


Josi Thyr, a 26-year-old musher living in the Seeley Lake area, finished the 100-mile run of the Montana Race to the Sky sled dog race early Sunday, while her friend and mentor Jessie Royer threatened to turn the 300-mile race into a runaway.

❤️ Thank you for the hearts and the attitude adjustment. ❤️

After shoveling snow for an hour this morning. I came inside, opened up my iPad and found the gift of a couple of lovely hearts. Thanks to you kind souls for the reset. Onward through my Monday.

Anybody notice this week how many folks on MSNBC

Have worn some shade of purple during coverage of the Senate impeachment trial? A LOT of them have worn or are wearing purple. Tonight is no exception. Is this a coincidence? Trivial, I know in terms of the weight of all that’s going on. It’s just something I noticed.

A sight that warmed my heart on this crappy news day...

I was driving to the neighborhood hardware store and I see my kiddo (14years old) flying by traffic on his bike with his fly rod strapped to his back...headed toward the Clark Fork River. I got home and he had done all his chores, recycling, emptied the dishwasher and fed the dogs...AND left me a note telling he he’d “gone fishing”. Love that kid.

National Guard presence in high schools?

I just came home from work yesterday to find a National Guard t-shirt in my son’s laundry basket. I asked him where he got it. He said that reps from the MT National Guard came to the school and worked out with them in PE. They had a tug of war competition, my son’s team won and were given t-shirts for their victory. The t-shirts say “ National Guard” on the front and have a colorful stylized logo on the back that says “Warrior Fit”. Please don’t misunderstand me. I am not anti-military but my son is just 14 years old and just trying to find his way in the world. Now he’s got a cool new shirt from the NG that he and his friends will be wearing/advertising for the NG. I asked my son if we could put it in the donation box we always have going and he resisted that. The NG visit to school seems benign on the surface but it seems to me that this is how the military might start to hook kids. Am I overreacting? My husband says I am. This isn’t sitting well with me.
