Despite all the best planning and intentions, my fiance and I are faced with the usual last minute dilemmas: an overly ambitious multiple course dinner, nothing prepared (he's still out shopping), picky guests, and a single 1950s portable roaster plus a stovetop and a Weber grill (outside in Vermont!) Of course, almost everything is cooked from scratch, we have limited counter space, etc. At least we are eating late, around 7 p.m or so. The guest will have to content herself with appetizers. Then we are cooking more the next day for 3 or 4 less picky eaters (plus heating up the leftovers because I always cook too much.) Ack!
