Q: We’re planning a week-long summer family beach house trip (10 to 14 people; two older kids). What are some easy meals for a large crowd?

As the resident family planner, I’d rather not “wing it” like some thou-shalt-not-be-named family members. While I love cereal, sandwiches, hot dogs, and burgers, I can only eat so much!

Editor: I’m with you, Jen. Do the planning now so you can kick back and enjoy your vacation. We’ve tackled this question before and still feel pretty good about the options on this list. They’re easily scaled up (or down) and don’t require any special pots or plates. Easy for the cook, and tasty for the crowd.
