    Re: We have a lot of food here. Plenty for your choosing. OKay to say?

    It's OK to say, but it's very colloquial. More properly you would say, "We have a lot of food here. Plenty for you to choose from." (Most properly you would say, "Plenty from which to choose," but unless you're hosting a luncheon at Buckingham Palace your guests will think you're an insufferable snob. Or an English teacher.)

    Or "There's plenty of choice".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
