Good point. If I get shitfaced I won't care what they want to eat.

Where did the French get it from?

They got it from those Latin speaking peoples of yore. Fact of the matter is, though, that those Latin speaking peoples spoke a word that's closer to what we do say in English. The genius of the French was to get rid of that "qu" sound replace it with the more elegant g.

Spaghetti with canned red sauce. Pro-tip, buy the cheapest shit can sauce you can find. The day before lightly sauté some garlic, onion, and oregano in bacon fat then add it to the sauce. Put it in a new jar and tell everyone it's homemade.

We just did like 20 people over the long weekend.

Honestly, could have been nice with a little more planning, but we were also all in the same place for the same amount of time. Basically my friend and I made 2 shoulders into sausage and thus covered a lunch and a dinner as well as some chorizo for breakfasts. Brats for lunch, Italian sausage for dinner as well as a big batch of Mac and cheese. Brought the things needed for the modernist cuisine recipe since it scales well, takes no monitoring, and is very easy... And then just picked whatever cheeses and vegetables looked good at the local farmers market.

The problem was that nobody else was stepping up to cook other non breakfast meals and my buddy and I ended up doing more grilling than we would have liked. Someone had bought plenty of burger patties, hot dogs, and other items at Costco to cover the rest of the meals, but there was nobody stepping up to take care of cooking. Easy to do a free for all with deli meat sandwiches. Not so easy to do it for grilled/cooked food for 23 people...

There is nothing elegant about the French language. It is a vomit language.
