Almost the Weekend

I have had a rocky week at work and am counting down the hours (3 more) until my freedom from 3.7 days. This is a big weekend because our dear friends Eric and Shelby are getting married on Saturday. Mr. P is an usher and one of the bachelor party planners/hosts, while our friend David and I are cooking and serving the rehearsal dinner tomorrow night. This is no joke my friends, we are making, plating and serving a 5 course meal for 30 some odd people. Here is our Menu:

Tomato Bruscetta

Cesar Salad

Cream of Asparagus soup

Naples style spaghetti and meat balls (my grandmother's secret recipe)

Double chocolate brownies and lemon bars

Tonight we are going grocery shopping and then setting the tables. Then tomorrow we begin our cooking marathon at 10am. Dinner is served at 7:30. It's going to be a long day but I think it will be a wonderful party. While we are doing prep work tonight the boys are having the bachelor party. Mr.P has to be in court at 8:30 am tomorrow morning. I am predicting a very grumpy husband on my hands tomorrow. Since the boys will be out getting into only God knows what kind of trouble I am going to take advantage of the calm before the storm to veg out with my sis and these fine people:

She just moved into her very first real apartment. And we need to christen it with a Dawson's Creek Marathon. You all know how much I adore the witty antics of Dawson Leery, Pacey Whitter and Joey Potter. Besides we are on Season three and getting close to the Pacey/Joey years which might be my favorite.

Happy weekend to everyone!


  1. You are a cooking rock star. I've always admired how ambitious (from my perspective) you are with your cooking projects & how you complete them so well! See you this weekend at the wedding. :)

  2. Wow busy couple! Good luck with it all and have a great weekend : )

  3. That sounds like a great menu!

    Dylan technically isn't in the military yet. He graduates from college in May and then will commission to Air Force as an officer. So this will be our first move. Right now, we are in Oklahoma where we have lived our whole lives. We will be going to Beale Air Force Base near Sacramento. I can't wait!

  4. Your menu sounds AMAZING!!!! Have a wonderful weekend!

  5. That menu sounds amazing!! :) Hope the cooking and serving goes smoothly!
