To Dream, the Impossible Dream...
Planning a huge belated Christmas Dinner for 12 guests the day after coming home from out of town, AND having to work all of that day is definitely not something I'll do again. This is a sample of what I'd LIKE the table to look like... Hmmm - do you think I'll be able to wiggle my nose and magically have it all appear? My Sweetie is home cooking his brains out to prepare the meal. I will actually be a guest at my own Christmas Dinner, not having lifted a finger to help cook, arrange, and organize it. It is difficult to swallow (no pun intended)! I love to cook, plan and create a big dinner. This one isn't one I can claim. In fact I'm actually frantic because there is no way in the world all these people (original number of guests was 7 but things got sort of out of control) will fit around my cramped dining room table or even into my house! I hope I don't have a nuclear reaction and entertain everybody with my meltdown... however I think this may be the predictable ending.
