Wish me Luck!

Tonight I`m catering for 50+ people in a kitchen with no oven, only a grill and a 4 ring hob.

I`m doing baked potatoes (at home 1`st) and hoping the grill will keep them warm.
I`ve made a Large pot of Chili (over 6 Kilos).
and I`m doing hot dogs too.

and at the same time I have to coordinate the firing of over 600GBP (about 1200 dollars) worth of fireworks.

the bonfire isn`t even made yet, and I`m waiting for a few lads from different places around the UK to arrive here with all the Pyro, I`ve never met these guys before either.

there`s so much to do today and I`m feeling quite nervous

OMG! Good luck, mate!

You know what is up, and you can prioritize well. I have no fear, you go this!

Only hiccup, the Pyro. But heck, doesn't matter if it is timed too well, things that go boom ALWAYS rock!


Sounds like quite a good time!

Have a good Guy Fawkes night YT2095! With that many fireworks, don't think they will notice if the food gets a bit cold! Enjoy when you can.

Hot dogs, chili and maybe a few brews to wash it down? Sounds like a good time. I hope the weather is good for your fireworks.

John....I once did steaks, bake potato, etc, etc, for about 40. I slightly under baked the potatoes in foil and put them in a "cooler", "ice chest"...at meal time they were piping hot and perfect!! Anyway, Good luck!!!

1`st Hicup, someone`s forgotten the Warning ribbon to cordon off the firing area and I only have 2 marshals!

lets just hope the Parents keep their kids under control, actually, lets hope they don`t behave in the same way themselves!
