Mom called me a month or so ago and asked if I would cater lunch for her and my Aunts for Aunt Jill's birthday. They would come to my house since it is in the middle and I would fix them lunch. Are you kidding me? I loved the idea!!! Totally got into too! I spent yesterday doing most of the prep work so that my kitchen and I wouldn't be a mess. Today worked out better than planned. I absolutely love love loved doing it. If you ever need a self esteem boost, spend an afternoon with Mom, Cindy and Jill! They are my favorite! The food wasn't half bad, if I do say so myself.
The Menu: Fresh Grape Gelatin's, Fall Salad with Cider Vinaigrette blue cheese and candied walnuts, Chicken pot pie in a pumpkin, and turtle brownie "skookie's"!
Like Ina says... take advantage of some things prepared for you... like the bagged salad (the fall mix) and a Betty Crocker box brownie (Turtle variety...) and then do other things that make a difference like fresh herbs, homemade chicken stock and pie crust. Martha might have smiled at it as well... except for the flies :)
