All the shopping took less than a half hour, thanks to the efforts I put in earlier in the week. The one thing I didn't buy (because I couldnt' find any) was ground pork, but then we found a half pound in the freezer. Exellent!
Yesterday we had leisurely prep of the soup (which is just this side of incredible, if I do say so myself), the shrimp, and the pork laub.
I am going to prep the pork tenderloin this morning after wee get back from our regular breakfst out and shopping, then I will just reheat it in its reduction.
The biggest thing we have to deal with is soaking the farro for 1 ½ hours and then cooking it for another thirty minutes. Oh, an setting the table, which is TBG's shot this time. he has a particular look he wants. So far this has gone down as easiest dinner party ever.
