when you have guests, it is best to RELAX
Blame the Cape Codders....
By relax, I mean, do what you have to do, right? I make my list, I cruise through it, and drop what can't be done.
I am so very solitary I do not often have to work with anybody else or their schedule or needs or requests. If I turn off my usual FAST LANE EXPRESS TRAIN personality, and decide to enjoy the time rather than make it my usual "GET OUT OF MY WAY, I have A LIST! I AM BUSY!". Because you may think I am a mellow dude, and I certainly may act like one, instead I am a SLAVE TO MY LIST...and since I write that list, I AM A TYRANT to my employees, who happen to be me.
So, point one in entertaining, relax Gary! You are doing fine, they are happy, they are eating all those tasty items and they probably don't notice the crappy job I do in cleaning the house. (keep the lighting LOW)
The other secret to hosting that I have found?
Always have raspberries. PEOPLE love them, everybody does, and at the table when they look at all the Indian, Mexican and Asian spicy vegan gluten-free food I prepare, even the pickiest eater could say "at least there are raspberries..."
Hey, let's catch up on gorgeous pots, right? Have a look here!
