Wednesday, October 20, 2010 Once Again, Bands-A-Plenty!
Tomorrow I will be entertaining three bands! The Midnightmares, They Hate Us and Arcane Malevolence. Of course, as it turns out, my freezer is on its last legs. It may have something to do with the fact that I've been treating my kitchen as if it serves a banquet hall for almost a year. It also may have something to do with the amounts of food my wonderful, well-intentioned neighbor brings over. I haven't eaten 7 bags of frozen pasta in the last five years, I'm not going to start now. So they sit there taking up space and eating up energy. It also could be that the freezer is old. We've been living here for 10 years. And if anyone can explain to me how THAT happened I'd greatly appreciate it.
But, never-the-less, dinner MUST go on and I am left with the only option being making every-damn-thing tomorrow.
This actually isn't that hard a prospect. Brilliant me is planning to serve Cowboy Pie and Chicken Pot Pie in Pumpkins. So I'll actually be able to make the fillings on the stove, put the pumpkins in the oven and then fill them for service (in my banquet hall). The pumpkins will act like warmers and keep the food at a good temperature.
And my lovely, giving neighbor brought me a beautiful cake stand that I'll adorn with Chocolate White Chocolate Chip Cookies - and maybe I'll make some whipped cream. Because I polished off last weeks cookies from the Happy Endings by dipping them in whipped cream and stuffing them in my mouth.
Stay tuned! And go to the show!
