Dinner for 9, Hold the Food Poisoning

Monday, January 12, 2009
By some miracle of God and modern housekeeping, I pulled it off.

"It" being a dinner party for 9, the last party in my little Fortress of Smoothitude in the yuppiest neighbourhood in town, and a list item.

Saturday afternoon I swept, simmered, layered and scrubbed, but not necessarily in that order. I made a special 2 meat lasagna, recipe courtesy of my mom. Friends brought wine, veggies, salads, appies and desserts to round it out. Yeah, I cheated. We had an upscale potluck, but I'm counting it anyway.

I even went so far as to lay down matching tablecloths, arrange some flowers, and light a bunch of candles.

I'm pretty pleased with how it all turned out, and it was a nice way to cool the house. I'll miss you, hardwood floors, separate kitchen space and storage up the wazoo- but your time has come.

Onwards and upwards. 23 floors upwards.

Expect your dinner party invitation in the mail any day now.

A special 2 meat lasagne? Colour me intrigued...

Care to trade for my mom's scuffle recipe or perhaps grandma's Ray-Tesh (Completely misspelled, I know) or perogie (misspelled?) recipe?

Anything worth making must have at least two meats.

I'll trade you for that scuffle recipe! The retes I have covered and I lack the counter space for perogies.

home a little bit, but other than that, this is magnificent blog.
A great read. I will definitely be back.
