Planning a dinner party in advance (even just mentally) makes the end of your week as relaxing as it should be. Carve out a festive weekend meal tonight and all you'll have to worry about is where to market and who to invite.
• Why not candy those pecans? (This will make assembling your Chevre Devils on Saturday evening a snap!)
• Make your Lemon Posset -- it will keep merrily covered in the fridge for at least a day.
