experiments in cooking, there is something wrong with me

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?

Winding down

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.
