I went to a pampered chef show that my friend Aimee threw a while back and agreed to throw pampered chef party of my own. The consultant was talking about the different kinds of partys you could hold and mentioned a power cooking show. I have been wanting to get a group together to cook meals in advance for a while now. Don't know why. Just thought it would be fun. And great for those nights when I have no idea what to cook. :o)
I set it up so that any of my guests could take two meals home with them as well, all they had to do was pay for groceries. I was excited to see that so many of my friends and family were going to be able to come. I went out and bought four, four packs of turkey from costco and all of the other ingredients needed to make the meals for myself and everyone that said they wanted to participate.
It started the night before and continued during the day of my party. One by one my friends and family called saying they couldn't make it for one reason or another. I have to admit that my feelings were hurt. I don't normally throw things like this because of this reason. I know that things come up that prevent people from being able to do things but my insecureness raises its ugly head and I just "know" that people are cancelling because they don't like me enough to come or something. Sounds stupid, I know. Whatever.
In the end, it was a great night. I had a good time and I think everyone else did as well. I am just glad that it didn't end up just being me and the consultant and that my fear of ending up with a year's supply of ground turkey did not come true. :o) In truth I didn't even care if anyone bought anything, I just wanted the meals. Ha! Ha!
