The all nighter
On a typical night, I might be abed by 10pm. Not necessarily asleep – but possibly. On a typical Saturday night I might be asleep, but if I’m awake I might have had a glass of wine.Continue reading “The all nighter”
Too much and just right
It’s hard to remember that I used to occasionally entertain.
It’s hard to remember how that went. How much is enough or how to decide on a plan that’s of a scope that’s reasonable for the number people in attendance.
Or maybe I was just so excited to have company again that I went a little crazy.
Either way, the weather is nice enough to be outdoors and the anti-cicada enclosure seems to work (plus they are starting to fade) and all the attendees are all vaxxed up. So why not go a little crazy?
The menu involved a massive charcuterie tray (ice packs between two metal trays to keep the food cool), plus mini pizza (not shown) plus spanikopita (not shown) plus fruit-cheese tartlets.
For FIVE of us.
It was too much food.
It’s more peopling than I’m used to now, by a lot.
But it was a great time too!
And as much as I might have overdone the menu, I had fun and it felt right … to have company again. To end a crazy stressful week with family fun and bit of festivity.
And more to come, with my sister’s birthday celebration and Father’s Day fun to come.
