Tomorrow, I initiate baking frenzy for the Saturday soiree. Gingersnaps, lemon merengues, angelfood cake. Friday I make the melonballs, and the guacamole for the BLATs (Bacon, Lettuce, Avocado and Tomato sandwiches) and toast the bread . . . make iced tea, stage the buffet setups, mumble, mumble .. .
Saturday morning, move extra furniture out, set up the buffet, plate and put out cookies, cake, put together sandwiches, make hot tea, put out iced tea, sparkling cider, melon balls, get chalk and write on garage door, "Come around back > > >" Take a deep breath, enjoy the party!
It's supposed to be the hottest day of the year on Saturday. If we need to, we can just grab everything and move into the house with the air conditioning. My friends are flexible and fun.
