Super Saturday: Hosting dinner guests

May 8, 2010

[Sadly, forgot to take pictures.]

A couple friends came to town last night and up until 6 pm, I wasn’t exactly sure if I was hosting a dinner or not.  I got a call to expect dinner guests in an hour and a half, so then the scramble to pull together a good meal commenced. 

The menu

Caprese salad
Broccoli, pasta, potato variation on Frugal Scholar’s Broccoli Garlic soup
Roasted chicken
Garlic and spinach
Red quinoa cooked in vegetable broth
Dessert: Pies in jars

That was the last of the pies in jars so it’s time to make up a new batch. (Musing: Did I buy any more flour? I did buy Granny Smiths but haven’t done a thing with them.)

I’ve got SO very much work to do this weekend that I’m all conflicted. I only see these friends a few times a year so obviously it’s important to spend time with them while they’re here. On the other hand, time is running out to get a number of freelance jobbies done and commitments must be honored.  It’s just going to be another weekend of juggling! 

Will someone out there have a restful Saturday for me?

  1. I had a calm Saturday 🙂

    I’ve been researching eating raw foods, which is way more appealing to me than eating vegetarian or vegan (strangely enough)

    Apparently red miso, and cashew butter will be my godsends

  2. I’m going to try making that broccoli soup tonight!

    @FB: I’m going to have to try that red miso!

    @aspiring minimalist: Let me know if you like it!

    @Crystal: It did! Wonderfully, in fact.
