Muchas gracias, Constance and Barbara!! Now....if the rain will just hold off. We had about an inch of rain in the last hour...often rains nightly this time of year. Now I remember why I don't have parties in the summer....

Patty, someone will have to hit the mega millions to get you all down here. Once you're here, we'll take it from there. I DO have 22 stuffed chiles en nogada in the fridge right now, so that's a start. I'll post the recipe.

Great Karen! Usually guests have the courtesy to ask if they can bring along extra people and that should have been the case with your friend. Surely after this, it won't be repeated. Glad you can relax now.

It sounds like she got the point - this time, at least. And as everyone has already mentioned, the folks who were there for the +4 incident no doubt know who you meant. I thought your email was way more gracious than I'd have managed. It sounds like it will be a lovely time.

this probably should be in the venting thread. i invited my daughter, my granddaughter and her boy friend for dinner. occasion was my oldest granddaughter's b'day. saige is her name, she also invited her boy friend and another gal friend. my daughter , she lives about an hour away, called to say it would be very late for her to come and she didn't see the point. so she bailed with three other guests she was bringing. saige's boy friend bailed, said he had to work late. the gal friend just decided she had something better to do. this all occured within two hours of the invite time. that left saige and i. and she was really hurt. we made the best of it and ate a tiny bit of the 40 dollar meal i had cooked. including cake and home made bread. we also drank a bottle of wine.at first i was very angry. now i am just sorry for saige. it made her cry. i sent food and cake home with her. how rude were these people with the flimsy excuses. i invited all a week ahead so they had plenty of notice. dinner for the family member on their b'day is a family tradtion. may have to rethink that one. i didn't yell at anyone but i don't want to talk to them either.

Oh babe, I am so sorry. All that work and of course, the money spent as well. That is really much worse than what happened to me. Everyone should realize how much effort goes into making a special dinner - the older we get, the more effort it takes. You have every right to be angry, but it sounds like you made Saige's hurt feelings your top priority. You are a good grandma.

That's horrible Babe. I'm glad you helped make the day better than it could have been for Saige. All those who bailed should feel ashamed of themselves.
