Blue Sky Farm

My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..

Company coming for dinner

 Tonight we have company coming for dinner.. I planned a small dinner party with a couple of friends and their spouses. I  Love to entertain and cook for guests.  I don't know why but when I do these thing I tend to work  for hours prepping and cleaning so I can relax when the guests arrive. 
While my husband has been sprucing up the outside, I have been preparing food, setting up a mini -bar, setting the table and pre-cooking what I can. Do you do this? It makes perfect sense to me.. and  makes the evening stress free.
My menu has been planned for a week. I am sure  it will be a great dinner. How can I go wrong.. good friends & yummy I should go chill the wine. marinade the fish and I will be set...or yeah and post my appetizer pictures on "thishensacookin  blog. You can see them, just go on over to the sidebar and click on the egg carton. 
I think I am set....
