I was hoping for something to serve at feast.  This sounds really good, but a fried dish for 100 is probably not a good idea.

Rice with almond milk for 100.  The recipe I found is 2 c almonds to 3 c water, 1 c almond milk to 1 c rice.  1 lb of almonds is about 3 c.  1 lb rice is 4 3/4 cups.  I bought 12 lbs of rice and 12 lbs of almonds.  Which should be about 84 c or 5 gallons of cooked rice, about 7 c for each table of 8. The proportions tasked pretty good in my test cooking.
