She went to three different food stores. She bought wine, cheese, crackers and homemade sausage at one store.
She bought fresh horseradish, fresh herbs and two kinds of small onions at another store. She went to the liquor store. She went to the home stuff store for tiny glasses.
Mom has also been washing stuff. She took all the serving dishes out, and put them all through a trip in the dishwasher.
The glasses also made a trip through the dishwasher. (So did the quilt on the table, too, even though I had worked so hard to cover it with my furs.)
The serving utensils have been located, and washed and set aside.
The big pots (one for potatoes on the left, the one for the big bird is on the right) have come out of the shed, and been washed and are ready to go.
Stock (for gravy) has been made.
Homemade bread has been baked.
Recipes have been printed.
The buffet layout has been determined.
I have been very busy snoopervising. It's a tough job, but I've been keeping up.
