The Great Housewarming Party Checklist

I hope I made enough food, but I comfort myself in the fact that I couldn't make any more.

ADVANCE PREP DONE:

Carnitas: Cooked, shredded. Sauce chilled and skimmed.
Chicken: 24 thighs marinating in an overnight paste rub of ancho and cumin.
Beef: Four pounds of eye of round cut into slabs and rubbed with a mix of dried onion, dried jalapeno, dried garlic, cumin, and chili powder.
Shrimp ceviche: Shrimp cut into small chunks and are marinating overnight in lemon, lime, and orange juices. Hope this works. New thing for me.
Mango-Cucumber Salsa: DONE
Four avocados worth of guacamole: DONE
Basic tomato salsa: DONE
Charred tomatillo salsa: DONE
Charred tomatillo salsa with chipotle: DONE.
Dishes, including my food processor work bowl THREE TIMES. DONE.

STILL TO DO TOMORROW:

Hope the shrimp came out alright. Finish with jicama, fresh chile, red onion, avocado if it did.
Grill off chicken and steak, slice thin for tacos.
Combine carnitas and sauce to finish cooking/reheat
Make big-ass pot of black bean/yellow corn/red bell pepper mix
Toast corn tortillas
Eat, drink, be completely fucking exhausted.
Even more dishes.

I'm bummed we missed it! But

I'm bummed we missed it!

But we were coming back from a weekend at Eric's dad's cabin and, since I can't drive, it would have involved the whole fam damily and Eric just wasn't up for driving across town after driving all weekend. I can't really blame him, though, we were all pretty wiped out. Hopefully we'll catch the next one, though. :-)
