I'm doing an after school party for my DS who will be 6. I was going to cook pizzas as all the children will have had sandwiches for lunch and as I will have been at work for most of the day I won't have time to make sandwiches. Unfortunately I've just found out that there are no cooking facilities at all at the hall I've rented - just a heat up thing that keeps food warm. Would jacket potatoes be a strange thing to have as party food? Does anyone have any other ideas?
Why not? Excellent idea. Especially as jacket potatoes keep their heat a long time, so you could even bake them all at home. Just before you leave for the hall, put them straight from the oven into a cardboard box wrapped a blanket. They should be ata good eating temperature by the time the children are ready to eat - no re-heating necessary!
You could have tubs of tuna mayo, baked beans, grated cheese etc all prepared as well. Plastic cutlery in cups. Individual juice cartons. The children will know the drill from school dinners.
