just thinking

I am trying to create my menu for this coming Saturday. My first official Tablenosh. Southern foods...unfortunately I am running very low on grits and you cannot buy them in Australia. So am dreaming of fried chicken, cornbread and squash casserole...or maybe a seafood theme with some shrimp and crabcakes...dessert of course will be hard to choose, pumpkin brulee, keylime pie, oh there is so much yummy stuff! Maybe mini grits souffle's w/ shrimp for a starter? I guess I better start reading recipes.

I really just hope the night goes well. Getting this 'in-home' dining concept out to strangers has been rather difficult. I am not sure if people just feel wierd inviting their friends to come along or if nobody is interested. Hopefully after this weekend I can get a better feel and push it all along a little more.

Hi there Leila!

Stumbled across here from a friend. Just letting you know coming along is on my to-do list sometime this year :) I'm a student and just waiting for the right time (i.e. when semester's over).

So there is interest out there!

Cheers.
