Preparing for the Troops

Ruf decided to have the stormtroopers over for an armor party, so I set to work getting things ready. First, I finished decorating in the kitchen. I realize that the guys really wouldn't care or notice, but I care, so I got out the hammer and nails.

I baked cookies last night. Oatmeal Scotchies, which were a huge hit at last year's armor party.

For lunch, I made a huge pot of chili, BLT cucumbers, and I served tortilla chips, cheese, and sour cream as accompaniments. Unfortunately, I forgot to take pictures before they ate.

I still need to cut up fruit for healthier snacks. I ran out of time, especially as I thought the chili meat smelled a little off as I began cooking it. So, I had to waste time running to the store for more beef, then chop up more onions and cook it all. So, everything took about an hour longer than it was supposed to. I guess all soirees can't go perfectly.

How fun!! I wish I could say I was having a bunch of stormtroopers would be so cool if Eric joined the 501st.

Way to go on all that food, too!
