Just checking in ~ a busy week behind me and a busy weekend ahead! Tonite, we are hosting one of the dinners we auction off for needy kids and we're doing it at the lake! The people who bought the dinner have a house on Kelley's Island, so they're stopping off at our place for wining and dining and then off to their weekend paradise!! The kicker is that one of the couples is the head of food services for a college in Michigan and have worked their whole life in the restaurant industry!!!! This is a little nerve wracking people!! I'll let you know how it goes!!
So, I'm packing the car and getting ready to drive to the North Coast and cook up a storm today! I baked the cakes for my black forest cake last night and will assemble them up there! We have all the basics up there but it's more convenient to cook here at home where I have all the stuff I might possibly need and lots of serving pieces, etc. ~ so we'll see how well I've planned!!
Tomorrow, we are going to a wedding up there for a fellow we built a home for here in town, several years ago! So that will be fun ~ reception at a private club that we've never been to ~ we'll get to see how the other half lives!!
Well, I better start packing the food up ~ hopefully I've got all the right clothes packed ~ the wedding gift is already at the lake ~ I think I'm outta here!! Have a good weekend!!
P.S. I think this blog looks naked without a picture ~
