Yea! Looks like that is going to happen this year! We have tried before. The problem has been that we need to pick-up and deliver it wouldn't work. Dh and I were both up to our eyes in getting ready. Ds has offered to be the taxi service. So the count looks something like this:
9 for sure Yes
1+4 pretty sure. We invited one he ask if could bring some friends he is ministering too.
2 adult sons and families = 8
our house = 7
Lets see can I add that much? I may have to take my shoes off!
Wow, close to 40!!!! Maybe we won't have leftovers for a month, only a week with that many! OK more like 2 weeks.
I do need to get more cornbread and biscuits made. Maybe I will do that tomorrow. Or DIL and I can both do. She does good cornbread!
I decided on my fruit salad bowl this year. Normally I use a big blue bowl. Make a circle with your arms joining hands and that is about how big the top of the bowl is. We always run out of fruit salad first! I have these really pretty plastic "tubs". I bought them on clearance this summer. I am guessing they are 2-3 gallon size. I will use one of them, maybe both!
I really can't see changing any of my other amounts. I had decided to make more fruit salad before I found out about the military.
I do have to get my dressing on much earlier. I have issues with getting it done. I may borrow my DIL's oven for some of the easier things like sweet potatoes or even rolls, provided I get around to making rolls. Half the time that doesn't happen. There is so much other stuff no one misses them.
