Hen Partay.......take 4!!
It's the Hennies!
I don't know how it all got started. I think Karen was bragging about how good her short ribs were and we decided that she had to prove it by throwing a dinner party where she would cook food for us. No boys allowed - hence the hen reference. I think Anna made it official with the glass hen which would then become the mascot for our informal dinner group.
I figured I'd volunteer for the next dinner get-together (it's the 4th one?). My thinking was cunning actually. I knew mom was going to be in town and since she can cook and I can't it would be the perfect time to have a party with food. I'm also thinking that if I don't do it before January there's never going to be a dinner party at my house once school starts!
So the next Hen meet is tomorrow evening and I think I'm completely worn out running around trying to make sure I have all the stuff I need for this fest. Today we still have shopping to do and food prep later on this afternoon. The house is still not done (stairs are incomplete due to Kev's recent bike incident) but who needs to go upstairs anyways??
I found out that I don't have enough chairs for everyone who's coming so will have to rectify that sometime today. Eeeeek....the more I think about it the more there is to do!!
Well, wish me luck! Hopefully the food is good but I'd settle for lots of laughter and conversation. Worst case scenario........we order pizza!!
