I’m catching up on my blog posts, and I realized there’s been so much I haven’t shared. I’m going all the way back to February when we did the premiere reception for “The Yellow Handkerchief.” It was one of those events when 300 folks come out of the screening and we need to be ready to serve! We’re real good at this kind of reception, and we can do it on a tight budget too.
First we set up the trays while the folks are watching he movie.

I hire a great staff….
And we decorate a little bit.

We are ready and waiting to serve you! This event was at the Silver Screen Theater at the Pacific Design Center. They are sticklers for the paper work and insurance nonsense, but the easy to work and elegant venue always creates a successful and enjoyable evening.
It’s here! The new and Improved website for Jennie Cooks Catering Company.
Take a look around and have a party! Or recruit some friends and let’s get together and cook up a storm on a Sunday afternoon. There’s so much to do with good food, and I want to help you eat well.
Oh my Julia I love you so
Everybody eats! Everybody wins!
Beautiful wedding, beautiful bride.

The guests were cozy in the Casita with a roaring fire to welcome them to this special day.
Outside the weather was giving us a thrilling evening – we weren’t sure if it would rain – and we didn’t care either way – we were safe and warm, held by all the love in the room.

Right after the ceremony, we served chubby crab cakes to appreciative guests. Followed by a grand buffet with an emphasis on vegetarian selections.
People raved – and joy abounded. Weddings are wonderful.
Please tell me – why is it okay to put up your Christmas lights the day after Thanksgiving, but if you leave them up for the entire month of January, you’re a loser? On that note, Just because a party is long gone, can’t I still remember it fondly and share some pix a few months later?

She made the prettiest pie and we bartered for some of her awesome photos. (I’m big on the barter thing)

It was a great way to kick off the holiday season and get all the busy bakers in the mood to be thankful, joyful, grateful.
creating tradition for years to come
I certainly hope you can make it in 2010. We made 130 pies this year – and we couldn’t have made even one more. Next year, more apples, more molasses, more pecans…. MORE BEER!
I’m checking things off my list and one of them was a blog post about the Eat-In last September for Slowfood.
Lisa did a great review here. I added a few pictures and now… off my list !

This could be you. Diane baked her first pie ever last year.
Diane's first time
And it was delicious, she remembers every bite. Penny and Mr. Finley created a delicious apple pie, and had so much fun, they came back to make chocolates for Valentines day.
This lady, whose name eludes me, showed up when the doors opened and baked a few nice and early.
And of course, Mimi was Virginal.
How will your pie turn out? Come and find out November 22nd.
