Where Is Fall??


Signs of fall have taken up residence in my kitchen for the time being. There are no signs of fall to be seen at the moment. It feels more like mid-summer today, very warm and humid. I think fall will be here in full force by Saturday, high only in the 60s and also calling for rain…:-( I hope the rain holds off until the family party I have planned for 2:00 p.m. is over, or it is going to be a very crowded house indeed. 

The last party I had was in September 2006, and it was overwhelmingly large. I was exhausted by the time the party arrived, and while my guests were here I was in the kitchen still getting things ready (GASP!) Ina Garten (aka the Barefoot Contessa) would not have approved. So this year, I have trimmed the guest list to mostly family, and I have ordered food from a local establishment that does a wonderful job of making BBQ ribs & chicken. I am still going to make a few things to have my own signature on the event, but the premise is to have everything done by the time my guests arrive.

I have planned things out well in advance, taken help where I need it and the rest will just fall into place.  The next couple of days are going to be busy, but not "pull my hair out kind of days." Ina just wouldn't approve.
