Small bites! Small bites!
Well not so small but not very big.

Yep 60 sit down. 


I have the duck confit marinating in the herbs, spices and salt right now.
The sausages have been completed and are in the freezer.
Almost all the recipes have been tested.
And the schedule is half way complete.

The "dining space" which is our very large garage is being cleared out and
prepared for arrivals.

This weekend is a "work weekend" and most of the cooking will start Dec.
