My son’s 4th birthday party was cancelled last week due to the venue being double booked. We were disappointed and our son was angry and confused, especially since he helped decorate it the night before.
In any case, it ended up being a good dry run for the catering I was doing. I had everything prepared on time, albeit with less sleep than I would have preferred. The problem was that I hadn’t made enough food. I ended up with enough food to feel about 15 people, when I needed to be able to feed about 35. So, today I’m preparing for the rescheduled event tomorrow. I will be getting a second pork picnic for the pulled pork. Also, I’m planning to have it brined and cooked to be ready just before the party, so I don’t have to refrigerate and reheat it. I’m always worried about drying it out.
Hopefully the party is a hit and a lot of kids show up.
