I helped Eric as best I could with food prep. Usually I am the boss in the kitchen and he helps me, but now we are the other way around. I found being on my feet for the 40 minutes I was helping to be really exhausting. I kept pausing and leaning against the counter. I got hot and was working in a tank top, guzzling ice water. I felt like I had to pee every 5 minutes. But I did it! I hope I was helpful, but the credit for this amazing food goes to my amazing husband. Every one of these dishes were made here, no store-bought food! Here are some pictures of the finished products:

The only slightly decimated feast:
And the wine we had before dinner (I had a little, yes. But everyone else took one for the team and finished the bottle before we even sat down). This is from a winery we absolutely love out in Sonoma. Every time we go, we stop in for a tasting. So good, and so reasonably priced:
We will be having leftovers for days! But the food was good, the company was enjoyable, and I would say that overall, it was a great success. I think I'll be seeing them next at the bris. How scary is that?
