A couple of weeks ago, I had a winter dinner party with my friends in my home. I had been wanting to have a party with them for a while, but couldn’t because of the pandemic. After my friends and I became vaccinated, it was the perfect time to have the party. There was one problem that got in the way of my plans. One day my heating system stopped working a couple of days before the party. I looked online as quickly as I could to find a company for HVAC repair in NYC in order to get my heater fixed before the party date.
I was starting to think that my party was cursed, because of the circumstances that had been interrupting it. No one could have foreseen that a pandemic would hit, and the fact that the heater stopped working so soon before the party was a real surprise. Still, I was willing to keep trying. I had already purchased food and drinks for the party, so there was no turning back now. I decided that if I wasn’t able to get the heater working before the party, I would just tell everyone to wear an extra layer of clothing before they come.
I was able to find a company to look at the heater and they did a quick repair that made it work again. This was all the day before the party was to take place, so I had more than enough time. On the day of the party, my guests began to arrive and I served them appetizers before the main course. I spent a lot of time preparing the food, making sure that it was perfect. Everyone loved the food, especially the dessert that I prepared. It was a souffle, which I made for the first time.
