I'm holding off in reading through the evaluations because I always need to distance myself a bit and have a stiff drink in my hand before I tackle those. No matter how many "excellents" I flip through, it is always that one cutting comments that sticks with you.
Someone last year wrote that "the lunch was insubstantial." Fact is, we did not serve lunch, but did have a snack break after 2pm pf healthy items like clementines and granola bars. But because that comment felt like a sucker punch, I made sure this year to set expectations appropriately in advance by repeating everywhere I could in the pre-show information that we are only having a light, healthy snack break mid-afternoon. Then I went a bit crazy in buying dozens of bags of apples and 20 boxes of granola bars, plus other goodies.
Now I have 30+ leftover apples in my crisper drawer, I'm hoping to have some time this weekend to convert those to apple sauce or a few pies. Anyone got any efficient apple peeling tips?
