Big Christmas/Holiday/It’s Been Snowing Party tonight. Woo Hoo! Rob’s making tenderloin, crab cakes and a tres leches cake and I’m cleaning the couch … .
That’s been our understanding for the length of our marriage. When we give a party, Rob does most of the cooking and I get everything else ready. I do assemble some food things, like the egg nog and the bean dip, but nothing heavy duty. Rob loves to cook and he’s really good at it. I’m too busy hoovering. **I’m not British, but how often does one get to use such a great term in Colorado life? Indulge me.** I don’t love cleaning, but I can’t help myself.
Why clean the house before a party? Because we have a pug and a cat who shed A LOT and I have this idea that I can make a dent in the amount of fur and dander that resides with us. I know they say it takes 6 months to make a home fur-less after a pet leaves a home, but I try to do it in 6 hours. I also stock up on Benedryl for allergic guests.
Apologies in advance, people. I’m trying my best here. You may be sneezing and have to use a lint brush on your coat, but the food will be amazing.
