I'm having a dinner party Friday night and I am uncharacteristically unprepared at this point.

1) The guestlist has swollen to about five guests above what I was originally planning. This isn't a bad thing at all, but it's throwing me off of my game here.

2) Is it Wednesday already?

I do not have a menu planned, let alone have I done any shopping.

It's a special challenge here because it's actually planned around a television show, so I can't do anything SUPER complicated. Really, it should be buffet-style, but I've never done that before for an actual meal, so it's somewhat worrisome to me.

Also, I have a mixed crowd. Mixed meaning there are vegetarians coming.

Fortunately, some people are bringing some food and drink, but of course I don't trust them, so I will be making way more food than can be reasonably consumed at this event.

I was talking to a friend of a similar mentality and we agree that this is definitely good stress to have.

It's going to be great but how I get to "great" from here is still a bit mysterious.

I will try to remember to let you all know how it turns out.
