Everything was going swimmingly well. Y'all helped me sort out how to cook the racks, etc., etc.
It's gonna be 4 couples total for dinner and one of them is bringing sushi as an appetizer. Also making a rice dish and french green beans plus bread.
The other day on the dry run, I called over the first Costco butcher and asked how many ribs per person. "3". As in 2 or 3 or 4, I say? "No, 3." OK.
I go back today for the buy. Asked a second butcher. "2". (I ignored that.)
I'm figuring I'm not gonna look cheap, so I planned to buy 4 per person. Next to the lamb is one of those sample stands and the woman is cooking leg 'o lamb. I ask her. "Oh, geez, we love those ribs... my boyfriend eats a whole package (8) and I eat half a package."
I ended up buying 5 ribs per person. I'm good, right?
