I am planning a birthday party for our pastor’s wife.
I think the hardest thing is the menu. In this case I have to avoid sugar. I had to avoid gluten as well, but I discovered I don’t. I am thinking about one or more salads, some veggies and maybe some sandwiches, like smoked salmon and egg salad on angel biscuits. I still haven’t decided on a dessert and I am trying to come up with one that doesn’t have much sugar and then I can use a substitute. I learned long ago that using a huge amount of substitute is not very tasty.
Then there is the issue of time. I want to give this party in the afternoon and I can take off from work, but the high school class I teach starts at 2:50 and goes until 3:40 so it is right in the middle of the afternoon and they are starting a new lesson in Photoshop so I need to be there. It is a real dilemma. I am sure I will eventually figure it out.
But even with all the problems I am excited to give a party. It is a lot of fun and having the ladies of the church and her quilter friends will be fun for her I think.
God bless you.
