Last Day at Jed’s

My last day at Jed’s, and the plan is to alternate cooking, writing, and Terraforming Mars. We picked up the new TM card game — it was a Kickstarter thing, but it’s also now available at Target, so more on that shortly. The cooking is because Alex kindly offered to host a cookbook re-launch party for me at his place on Sunday, so I’ll be cooking lunch for his friends + a bunch of my friends. Funfun.

Tentative menu — it’s overloaded for the number of people, but I’ll probably drop a few things as we go, depending on time / energy levels. But I do have Jed to help me chop today, and Alex’s family to help me chop tomorrow — I can cook a LOT with sufficient sous chef assistance. 🙂 And we’re ordering a few things from a local Indian restaurant, which will help.
