Have one, now or in the past? It could be home-made or restaurant-made and eaten wherever the family likes to gather. I wonder if mine is the most popular choice.

Growing up, it was Chinese, not home-made.

Someone left a rep about the topic being more suited for the Food forum. Maybe so. I didn't think of that; I don't visit it. Still, there's an inherent point here that people have to find agreement for food type of the gatherings, which is relational.

Italian? Who doesn't like a big dish of lasagna? As to Chinese, there are too many people, who believe that they can't reach satiety with Chinese food. It depends on what menu is planned, I guess. But for a big family gathering, I don't think guests would be expecting Chinese food. The Indian food suggestion was interesting. That could work.

A good old American barbeque would be my choice. I don't dislike most of the choices mentioned when restaurant dining, but I don't think any of them really improve when being prepared for a crowd. Chafing dishes of ziti, lasagna and fried rice really turn me off. I'd opt for a burger, corn on the cob, and salads over anything more exotic.

If they all live here in America they are probably Americans so what's wrong with a good old American cookout Hamburger?Hot dogs? Steak? Barbecue. Add picnic type sides of salads and good ole Apple pie or Strawberry shortcake for desert. That seems pretty Ethnic for Americans or even guests of America who want to experience good ole fashioned American Ethnic cookout.
