Cooking for 60

I like to cook. I love to try new recipes and experiment to create something new. I especially love when someone is having a party or a cookout and I get to bake a dessert. However, this weekend my boyfriend's family is having a surprise 50th birthday party for his mother. We are cooking the food...for 60 people. I have to admit, I really have no idea how to cook for that many people. I'm more than a little nervous. I have 10 pounds of chicken in my freezer. I'm making a chicken marsala casserole. I tried it out a few months ago and it was pretty good. Now I have to figure out how to make it for the masses. How does one cook 5 pounds of pasta? I think I need a larger pot.

My First Blog

So this is my first blog. My boss wants everyone to understand what it's like being a blogger, so here I am...wondering what to write. It took me a significant amount of time to actually choose a name. Then I realized I should go with the obvious. After all, WV Girls really do rock.

Right now I'm thinking about football...WVU football to be exact (big surprise!) Tomorrow my Mountaineers play Auburn. I'm a little nervous about the game seeing as how our season hasn't gone quite as I expected. I usually look forward to the games each week. This season though there is a pit in my stomach each week. At least I have basketball season to look forward to. Gotta love what Coach Huggins has done with that team. Wish I could say the same for Coach Stew.
