Last Friday we had a get-together with church friends. 14 people RSVP'ed. I made food for 20 and 7 actually came!! I made a big pot of white chili, cornbread and various munchies. 5 of our guests were guys and this spinning candy tray was very popular. :0)
My family arrived Saturday afternoon. My sister, who lives several hours away called to say she was having contractions. Later that evening, my parents headed down to her place. Of course her contractions had stopped by the time
they arrived! ;0)
Sunday came around and we still had a ton of food left over from Friday night. Phillip called me from church and said "How many people can I invite over for lunch?" I am so thankful my sister is visiting with me. We put another leaf in the table, set it with the good china, made some fresh cornbread, warmed up the chili and squeezed 9 of us around the table! It was so fun and we had a wonderful afternoon visiting.
Here is a picture of all the dishes we washed afterwards. It really didn't take that long....maybe 40 minutes. Now I can't promise you that they are all clean. ;0)
I did a little rearranging in the kitchen. I had various tea dishes on the counter of my piesafe hutch. It wasn't getting much use so I changed it into a "baking center" for the girls and Benjamin. I set out their cookbooks, along with a mixing bowl, and baking utensils. They love it! Grace made Garlic and Cheese Monkey Bread for our dinner last night. Recipe coming soon!
