There is a probate hearing next week to rule on the administration of my father’s will. Since this is the last weekend I know for sure I have a place to stay (though I guess I’ll be here at least another month), I am celebrating with a pre-probate party. Nothing fancy, just a taco bar with three kinds of taco shells, three kinds of filling (one vegan, all gluten free), all sorts of toppings and garnishes, and homemade brownies made with butter and extra chocolate for desert. Alas, the brownies are neither vegan nor gluten-free, so those with special needs will have to choose between fruit or ice cream.
If you are in the high desert area, you are invited! Just let me know. Should be fun. I know that a least a few people will be here (maybe more!), so that is a big step above the last party I gave where no one showed up. (But that was so long ago, I’m not sure it even counts.)
