Looking for recipes to feed a crowd of 30 on the regular

Every other week, my husband and/or I make a Eucharist dinner for about 30 people at the local church. The point of this dinner is to get parishioners and people in the community who might need dinner together at the same table. I’m kind of burned out on recipes and am looking for new ideas. Specifics below the fold. [more inside]

Are my water bottle and thermos a lost cause?

I used dish soap to clean out a plastic water bottle and metal thermos that had gotten a bit gross. It turns out - the left a taste of dish soap in both of them. So I looked online for advice, and found that vinegar can clean that out. Now, uh, they taste like vinegar. Is there a proper way to clean these vessels, or should I just give up and buy new ones and take better care of them?

Can I Drink This, Or Does Someone Else Want It More Than I Do?

So, my mother buys things at estate sales. Sometimes, these things include unopened bottles. (I will always remember the time she cracked a bottle and poured me a shot of something saying, “Try this.” I said “Sure, what is it?” but had already started drinking before she answered “probably rum.” It was not rum.) In any case, I unguardedly mentioned that I was out of bourbon, and she produced this box. [more inside]

Where to eat in SW/SE Portland

I go to Portland a lot but will be visiting a neighborhood I'm less familiar with. Mostly in Sellwood-Moreland, staying in Burlingame. Visiting alone so want to keep it simple, like homey breakfast places or inexpensive sit-down international eats. Where should I go? EIther hole-in-the-wall or hipsterish is fine.

The Nuns at Sunday School Didn't Prepare Me For This

I have a new-ish job as an office assistant. One of my tasks is to keep the office stocked with snacks, courtesy of my boss's Amazon account; however, my boss and many of his clients are Orthodox Jewish, and would prefer we get as much food as possible that's Kosher. How can I (a lapsed Catholic) make sure I do that? [more inside]

Gluten-Free Pasta

I don't eat gluten-free or feed anyone who is, but still I'm curious just in case, which gluten-free pasta is least offensive to those who don't eat it regularly (either type of pasta such as chickpea or rice, or a specific brand)? I have had chickpea pasta and really hated the texture but maybe it was just that brand.

South TX barbecue sauce?

I am from San Antonio, TX. I actually dislike barbecue, but I want to make a complete meal of it for my SO as a cultural exercise. Can you personally recommend a regionally appropriate barbecue sauce recipe? The kind I want is thin and not too sweet, with a lot of vinegar. At home it's a condiment to put on the meat once it's done, not for basting or whatever. Any ideas? Thank you.

Please ID this French beer bottle cap!

A co-worker has a stem cover made from a French beer bottle cap on his bike. He very much wants to know which brand of beer this is. He got it in the south of France several years ago (no further specifics than that). Here are the photos. I told him if anybody knew about this, it would be here.

Hypoglycemia tips for low-energy, low-appetite vegetarian

A recent blood test showed my blood glucose seriously low, so I am trying to change my diet (which currently contains a lot of coffee, sweets, and meal skipping). Unfortunately I am not very well and not very hungry, which makes preparing and eating food unappealing. What are some hacks to deal with this? Good recipe books? Hypoglycemia podcasts? Low-glycemic snacks or mini meals that can be batch cooked so they are grab and go? I am able to spend some money on this and any advice is appreciated.
