Yep...that about sums it up for the past 24 hours. My dear husband turns 60 tomorrow and I am having a party for him! Now mind you....he only wanted his kids and grandkids..at first...then he added a couple of friends...then he added a couple of more friends...then he added his sisters and brother, plus the spouses....then he added more friends...then Holy Toledo...I think I am up to about 50 to 60 people! I just started planning this "Main Event" on Thursday afternoon, not to mention that I had to work on Friday! Luckily, I was able to order him a cake, rent some tables and chairs and order some chicken...
Today I cleaned like there was no tomorrow, then I shopped like a mad woman. When I got home this evening I started cooking, chopping veggies, fruit, making some kind of dessert called "Puppy chow" and now I am totally wiped out. So wiped out that I forgot to buy him a birthday gift!!!!!!! I think I will tell him that the party is his gift (I don't know if he'll buy that one!) but I really did forget until about an hour ago..o well, I am making his favorites.
Here's the menu:
Smoked Sausage with sauerkraut
Meatballs with Swedish style gravy
Chicken (from Kroger...the best!)
Red Skin Potatoes (from my daughter, Renee)
Corn on the cob (I forgot to shuck tonight..darn!)
Chow Mein Salad
Buttered Green Beans with almonds
Pistachio Pudding (from my daughter in law Sara)
Sounds like a lot...well, maybe--- maybe not, depends on who shows up! So if any of you are hungry stop on buy..what's a few more?
