P is for Party

The US Good Housekeeping's planning guide created by Lulu Powers is always a good start for a party planning list.  Here's my version with a few English English tweaks.

But what do you serve for food, without killing yourself or filling guests with the sugar found in those supermarket canapés?

Depending on numbers (and this coming weekend I have 27) I cooked one large ham [updated 16 Dec 2013], two legs of lamb and bought a whole round of brie (carve out one triangle and pull it out slightly; add some dried apricots chopped in half to help set it off).

Place each of these on their own carving boards (lamb legs one at a time) on your kitchen table next to a pile of side plates, another pile of serviettes, plenty of the appropriate condiments/sauces, and a big bowl of sliced baguette (plus butter).

Simple, easy to scavenge from (depending on your level of hunger) and minimal washing up.
