Dinner for Six

...because we live so far away and it's been difficult to get all our vacation times in sync.....it's been more than 10 years since my in-laws came to visit for an extended time. We're so excited.... they are staying with us for a month...hopefully enough for me to learn my mother-in-law's cherished family recipes...
They have their airline tickets... and are all set .... I'm frantically trying to get things ready.  New linens,  towels, cookware, flatware and a lot of other things are needed for the kitchen and bedrooms.  CSN  has a fabulous selection of dinnerware sets 

and a three section buffet server I'm eager to get.......really glad CSN offers free shipping.

There's so much to do and certainly it will be toxic as the day draws closer but we're thrilled they're coming!

Dinners will be for six---a sister from New Orleans and my sister-in-law from L.A. will be flying in too.....so... been hinting to hubby that I need a
                                            Kitchen Aid mixer or a Le Creuset in flame
                                                                       or cobalt, 
                                                         an immersion blender and
                            a kitchen torch for the crème brulee, halibut and steaks...
..... my wish list of items to buy from CSN keeps getting longer....... hubby will say I need to prioritize but ....problem is...I want them all!

I love wish list...they all look so nice, so pretty :-)

Ah...the never ending wish list. Where I have most of the items on your list (with the except of the Le Crueset items), my list is just about as long! Food mill, dehydrater, a few cookbooks, a huge stock pot...
