The Book Swap is planned for a Saturday afternoon at 2 p.m. I have invited quite a few people.
I know I’ve missed someone but I was hoping for at least 20 and maybe more like 40 people.
Each person is supposed to bring 10 books. Four hundred is better than 200 in terms of selection. Also, the festival spirit rises with more people chatting and mingling.
Between 2 p.m. and 4 or 5 I don’t believe people will expect a meal. I wanted an easy menu that would leave me free to mingle also.
Charlie, on the other hand, likes to have a task so I’ve incorporated that, too, into the menu.
Book Swap Menu
- Grilled chicken thighs (Charlie’s chore)
- Pulled pork sliders
- Tortellini salad
- Bread and butter pickles
- Ice Cream sandwiches
- Iced tea
One departure from my usual presentation will be paper plates and napkins and plastic utensils and cups. That is not my usual M.O. but with the main focus being “the books,” disposable products should simplify our serving and cleaning up process.
I don’t want to forget easily accessible trash bins.
What have I missed?
