Community Group

For the last few weeks we've averaged probably seven adults plus a few kids at our community group that meets weekly. For March the Morgans are hosting, which means I also prepare the main dish, but tonight we had eighteen adults plus six kids! I doubled this easy, delicious recipe, and we still almost ran out. It's a crazy scene around here with so many people, kids, and dogs. While I do enjoy the quiet intimacy of fewer attendees, the boisterous crowd is fun and exhilarating--though the planner/hostess in me worries we'll run out of food. Then I'm reminded of this scene from Clueless when Cher argues the pro side during a debate.
Cher: So like, right now for example. The Haitians need to come to America. But some people are all, "What about the strain on our resources?" Well it's like when I had this garden party for my father's birthday, right? I put R.S.V.P. 'cause it was a sit-down dinner. But some people came that like did not R.S.V.P. I was like totally buggin'. I had to haul ass to the kitchen, redistribute the food, and squish in extra place settings. But by the end of the day it was, like, the more the merrier. And so if the government could just get to the kitchen, rearrange some things, we could certainly party with the Haitians. And in conclusion may I please remind you it does not say R.S.V.P. on the Statue of Liberty. Thank you very much.
