I got most of my veggies from a friends garden--- what I couldnt get, I bought at local fresh farm stand.
We have 4 vegetarians coming tonight... so, I wanted to have a lot of options for them.

Apps
Cheese and Meat platter (smoked Gouda, smoked mozzarella, NY cheddar, Brie, sopressata, pepperoni, grapes, crackers)-- DONE
Potato Chips (for DS!) onion dip---DONE
Crudites (carrots, zucchini, squash, celery, olives) DONE
Shrimp cocktail- cleaned, boiled and DONE


Entree
Grilled flank steak and grilled chicken breasts- MARINATING
Zucchini casserole (friends garden zucchini)- DONE- need to cook
Sauteed Carrots, grapes & walnuts - ALL MEASURED OUT- this needs 15 min JUST before dinner
Honey Roasted red potatoes (farm stand)- DONE- need to cook
Corn on the cob (farm stand-- I bought 12 to break in 1/2's..think that is enough?) DAMN! NEED TO SHUCK
Tossed salad (romaine, zucchini, cucumbers, carrots, tomatoes ..all from friends garden--except lettuce bought at farm stand) with my homemade basil dressing- DONE.

Dessert
Peach Pie (homemade yesterday)
Vanilla Ice Cream (homemade this AM)
Fruit (pears, strawberries, blueberries, peaches) All bought at farm stand) NEED TO CLEAN & CUT UP


What do you think???

OMG I am FREAKING CRAZY! Litterally, I have been cooking ALL DAY!!!! I have been on my feet cooking NON STOP since noon!!!

I still have to shuck the corn- clean the kitchen- get the fruit cleaned and cut up and on a platter.
I have to pick up DS at 3. We are playing with a friend at a park until 5.. everyone is coming at 5:30.

OMG!!!! someone smack me when I want to do this again!!! LOL!!!!

YOU CAN ALL COME IF YOU COME & HELP!!! AAAHHHHHH
