I catered a dinner last night, sit down for 17 (passed hodos) plated salad, chicken with orange ginger sauce, stansel's rice, sauteed onions, broccolini with hoisin and shiitakis.. Dessert with berry crepe with cream filling....my darling 13 year old maybe soon to be 14 year old did not get a message to me that staff had been found so we had 5 people (including me)....I done this dinner the past 4 years and it takes forever to wash her crystal and china...it is fragile and OLD. I thought we'd be tripping over each other but it was a breeze...china is washed in no time, we left 20 minutes after the guests. I could have made it with 4 but 5 was great...2 plating, 3 serving and one of those three switching back and forth.

Blanche broccolini, saute shiitake, when ready to serve saute in sesame oil (not toasted) add sesame seeds and I threw in hoisin but oyster sauce was what I looked in my fridge for....
Thanks guys, just thought the numbers were trully skewed...5 to 17....any others experience this phenomina?
