Q: I am hosting a housewarming party. I recently purchased a house and I will be having between 50 and 100 people there.

How do we feed this many people without losing our minds?

I do know I want a drop-in party where people can come and go between a set time. I want something stress-free but fun. I’d also like this to be as inexpensive as possible without it being a potluck.

Editor: I would advise keeping it simple and having lots of snacks that can be served at room temperature and then having one hot item that can be made ahead of time and kept warm in a slow cooker or on the stove. Chili, meatballs in sauce, or even a creamy soup would be great inexpensive options.

Readers, what would you serve at such a large housewarming?
