More pictures, and lots of pasta (posted by Ann)
Doesn't he look happy?
Tomorrow is the pasta gig. I have four pans of lasagna, which are supposed to serve 12 but will probably serve 8 teenagers. I have meat sauce made that I will mix with four boxes of penne pasta. Each box serves 8, so count it as 6 teenager servings. I have four bags of cheese tortellini to cook with marinara sauce, and each of those says it serves 7 so maybe 5 teenagers. I'm also making a batch of pasta primavera, mostly because I want to watch the teenage boys avoid all vegetables. Steve tried the recipe this week, and really liked it, so I know he'll eat it but I wonder about all the rest.
That adds up to pasta for 76 teenagers, not counting the primavera. Whew.
I have other Moms coming with salad, bread, dessert, drinks, paper plates, plastic forks, and napkins.
I have a Dad coming to do traffic control.
I have taken everything breakable and moveable off the ground floor.
All that's left to do is brace myself.
