So after we tidied up the tornado from the Wizard of Oz party on Thursday night of last week, we set about preparing a "delivery dinner party" that was due to "ship" (?!?!?) on Friday afternoon.
What's a "delivery dinner party"?
Well, we were asked to prepare a 4-course dinner for "the mom" of a lady we met at a recent cocktail party (oh don't you just LOVE word-of-mouth advertising?) This lovely lady once gathered friends and family around her dining room table quite frequently; WOWING them with dinners they talked about for years to come. But what with some recent health 'inconveniences', she really was no longer able to spend all day shopping, prepping and cooking. The thrill of it all had gone, but she still wanted to host her friends in the comfort of her own home, cook "a little bit" and give them a meal to remember.
What IS a girl to do? :) Well, call up the ShortStack Foodie OF COURSE!
