When last I wrote, I was getting ready to host dinner for 8 in my apartment. It came off beautifully! Borrowing 2 chairs, 8 plates, and assorted table knives worked fine. We fit pretty well at the table (as well as we've fit anywhere), and the social milling around bit before dinner was a little cozy, since we were hemmed in by the table on one side and couch on the other, but it was fine. Phew. It helped that others cooked various parts of the meal, so I was only responsible for the appetizer. I made the Pioneer Woman's mushrooms stuffed with brie, and they were amazing.

I got a picture of the room ready to go:

And some morning-after shots:


Whew! I'm headed north for the day, to visit a cheese place or two and then to volunteer at a small-town cafe, as part of the San Francisco Bluegrass & Old-Time Music Festival.Should be fun!
