new year's eve lunch. i live in a culdesac. wife and i are the youngest residents. most of everyone is retired, widowed..or just angry (get off my lawn!)
i talk to them all. help change motor oil, do minor yard work, heavy lifting..etc. come to find out, most spent Christmas alone. why they dont all meet for dinner is beyond me? anyways, monday, wife walked around and invited all of them over for a simple meal.
i am going to keep it simple. grilled thick cut porkchops. some apple chutney, garlic mash potatoes..steamed veggies. i'll start the meal off with roasted butternut squash soup..and a green salad.
wish me luck. i'll get them all boozy with my wine stash..and whip up vodka martinis. i never cooked for 8 people before.
