Survived.

There was a medieval feast.
My friends, staff and shul are amazing, amazing people and I cannot live without their help.
Katherine de Staverton was a kick-ass speaker and everyone was very enthused about feeling they learned something.

Everyone loved the food.

Everyone loved the event.

We made some money for the shul! (Not as much as I wanted, but hey...)

We got great press:

Nobody but me is apparently broken. I will not ever do cooking except in new-ish crocs, my period shoes with insoles, or sneakers EVER again. I feel, in the words of Douglas Adams, like a military academy, parts of me keep on passing out.

Our Synagogue President and Cantor washed about a million dishes. I couldn't even get in there to help, most of the time. Juliana van Altenfeld cooked up a storm, and so did our Synagogue President (I think I'm so exhausted from trying to keep up with her!). Evan helped with EVERYTHING and was moral support for me too! Alys washed and washed and washed dishes and equipment. Miss B. and Miss A. from the shul did serving, as did Sarah, but Sarah was my co-cook too. Juergen was a wonderful husband-beast and wrangled toddler for days on end so we could make this happen.

HURRAY!
