Tech people love their food

It seems to be a well knows fact that Tech people love their food. Microsoft sure knows it. At Tech Ed Microsoft lavished all kinds of food (much of it candy and junk) on the attendees. Remember only about 13,000 people attended. Here is the list. :)

More than 1,250,000 pieces of Mikes and Ikes were consumed over the course of the week.

83,700 ice cream novelty bars and fruit and yogurt bars were served.

60,000 (or 5,000 dozen) eggs were eaten by attendees at breakfast.

At least 1.6 million ounces of coffee were poured.

More than 50,000 pounds of carbohydrates were consumed at Tech·Ed.

7,500 table cloths were used and reset on a daily basis.

But the health conscious where there in force. Salads and water were consumed:

The total amount of fruit ordered for this week would fill three-quarters of a full-size tractor trailer.

18,750 pounds of salad were prepared and offered at meals.

It took four tractor trailer trucks to transport the 150,000 bottles of water that were consumed this week.

For the rest of you go on over to my buddies Blog "The Cook Shack" and take a look at the recipes he has been cooking.
