I spent all afternoon cooking and getting ready for my party tomorrow afternoon.
We also brought a second dining table and 6 chairs up from the basement. Can you see it down by the window?
Since I am doing a Soup, salad, deli buffet tomorrow night, I need seating at tables for everyone. Balancing hot soup on your lap on the sofa just won't work!
Because I am not doing a formal dinner, I had to take down the pink lacy dining room table set up. I left the table bare (gasp! a bare table at my house in very unusual), except for a large live evergreen/pine cone centerpiece and chunky white candles.
I had the urge for something sweet this afternoon, so I ate a couple of the lumpy cookies. I guess they taste OK....
Betty, how sweet of you to offer a plateful of your cookies. I bet my husband would be much happier this holiday season if you lived near us. He is really missing his usual assortment of cookies, especially the frosted sugar cookies.
I think it's bedtime for me. I will have a busy day tomorrow.
