Solstice party. Here's the current state of my to-do list:
DONE cold fried chicken: a piece came out underdone, and so I feel I
need to stick the whole batch into the oven for a while to make sure
it's cooked through. A drag, but not the end of the world.
Also, there's some unbreaded chicken that I plan to bake with barbecue
DONE veggie kabobs with some sort of veggie protein (tofu or seitan or
tempeh): Not started yet, except the pressing and marinating of the
tofu. (the teenager did this)
DONE pulled pork and homemade rolls for sandwiches: Pork is pulled.
Burned the first batch of barbecue sauce, so I need to make more.
DONE Need to make rolls (dough is ready).
corn on the cob: need to cut and shuck and boil. Will start around 6.
DONE potato salad: made
DONE macaroni salad: made
watermelon: Will cut at last minute
lemonade: need to make (the teenager said she would do it)
BUYING SODA iced tea (sweet and un): may make; may instead buy cold
two-liters of soda, because I can't find my other pitcher
SKIPPING peach cobbler: may skip; I have fewer peaches than I thought
after the peach ice cream, and I'm going to need the oven for the rest
of the chicken
DONE homemade ice cream, several flavors: done and yummy. We made four
flavors, but I gave the teenager permission to eat all of the green tea,
because that's her fave. She said it was better than store-bought.
*preen* There are small amounts of dark chocolate and vanilla in the
freezer, and a bit larger amount of peach. I may make more before the
