So with ingredients in tow and the kitchen reserved, we set to work Wednesday afternoon, taking turns at the stove and using every available flat surface on the first floor for various stations: guacamole making, vegetable dicing, salsa doctoring (German bottled salsa is much like ketchup and needed a little help), and meat preparation. We started to worry we wouldn't have enough food, and so Katherine ran out about an hour in to buy 10 chicken breasts, returning in record time to marinate them in lime juice and stuff the skins with tomatoes and peppers (she works magic with chicken). The labor was so incredibly worth it, however, as by 7:00 we had prepared one hell of a feast.

I forget about Nat's dislike of all tomato-products and assign him to salsa doctoring; when that doesn't work he assists Katherine in chicken-magic and has great success

Sitting down to eat, together and happy and thankful.
