The guest list initially topped 30. Should I run to the store for paper plates and napkins, or stay up late baking muffins in case I run out of food?
I prepared a simple menu similar to today's Kitchn feature: spinach strata, quiche, fruit with ginger yogurt dip.And for the first time ever, I relaxed--inviting guests to bring a favorite bread or pastry to round out the meal.
You know what? Sandy at Reluctant Entertainer is right.
We had a lovelier assortment than I could have ever baked myself, from soda bread to cinnamon rolls to beautiful pastries from Panera.
Here's to letting go of perfection! I love it when embracing "good enough" leads to something even better.
