Did you know that cooking a sit down dinner for 16 people is ridiculously difficult?
I sure didn't.
Let's just say I love, love, love, to cook and nourish friends and family. I cook all the time, I've even been known to cook Thanksgiving dinner just for myself specifically because I love cooking so much. But, I've never in my life done a sit down dinner for 16 people.
Luckily my awesome, awesome sister was in from CA to help with the party. I think she thought she was there for my mom. I don't think she realized she was there to be my sou chef/ minion (really it was more like minion, but she didn't like me calling her that).
Let me tell you, this was a busy day! My mother, sister and I were all at the farmers market by 7:45 getting ingredients for the rest of the day while my dad was at home getting tables and chairs out for us.
