The Singapore Slings were a big hit. We made a big pitcher of it so it was easy to hand out drinks as people arrived.
I was able to prep everything for the spring rolls and then pass off the assembling to my friend Greg. He was a superstar helper.
Bonus: my new, extra long felting table works perfect for entertaining as well!
Assembling the salads was fun. Vietnamese salad is one of my favorite dishes to make and eat.
With just a few stragglers at the end, we set up the fire pit and relaxed! It took 6 dishwasher loads to get everything clean. Now I have a few days to relax before hosting our wine group this coming weekend! At least that is a potluck so it won't be as crazy.
