The Easiest Party I Ever Gave

You know I love to cook, and try out new stuff on unsuspecting guests. But I can get so involved that I wear myself out and can hardly taste the food when I serve it. There's something wrong with that.
Dave invited his baseball pal and wife out to our place for Sunday lunch and for this event I decided to just grill burgers. Unheard of!
Of course I had to grind my own beef, but that was it. Slice some onions, tomatoes, pickles, open a container of cole slaw and pop some beans from a can into the oven.
For french fries I sliced up potatoes and baked them in olive oil and spices. Easy peasy.
Dessert was fresh peach crumble with vanilla ice cream.
Our guests brought a nice bottle of red and a lemon meringue pie. Woowoo!
So I learned something important with this experience. It was good food, simple and all done ahead, and we ate it with great conversation and laughter.
That's what really counts.

  2. Mmmmmm. That looks wonderful. I enjoy parties where I don't have to spend all day in the kitchen and can relax and enjoy my company. My company meals have become much simpler too.

  3. I can almost smell the burger!!! YUM, YUM!!!

    I've done that, too. I've fussed and fussed and when it came time to eat I was worn out and too tired to eat. I learned my lesson that it was better not to fuss and just enjoy the simple pleasure of getting together. :)

  4. This is the right thing to do! I confess that my neurotic stagefever before having guests is so terrible that I hardly ever invite anyone. Maybe this might help.

  8. That burger photographed magazine quality. Yum, yum - can I come over for lunch? I have a love hate relationship with cooking. I love to try new things, but hate all the hassle I put myself through. Like you, I can never just do easy, but I'm learning too.
