Cooking ahead for really nice dinner parties

My wife and I really like cooking elaborate multi-course meals for guests. We are advanced home cooks, and greatly enjoy being in the kitchen. However, our kitchen is not lavish, and of course time is limited. What are your go-to recipes that can be prepared in advance (ideally, the weekend before and frozen) and then finished or reheated for a really excellent dinner party? Examples inside. [more inside]

Mom is in the hospital and we don't know what she would want

In the last week, two agents from two different big literary agencies in a rich Asian country (not China) have, apparently independently, come calling for one of my non-fiction how-to books.

searching for wooden watermelons

I often find myself wanting to search sites like netflix and amazon with greater granularity than the sites currently offer. For example, I'd like to find every highly-rated thriller that takes place in another country and is available used for $5.00. Or if I'm searching netflix, I would want to find every foreign mystery that is rated at four stars or higher and is rated pg-13 or lower. Are there third-party clients or scripts that will accomplish these or similar tasks?

Hitchhiker Filter

I'm certain that somewhere out there, at least one of you has already seen an advance screening or sneak preview of "The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy." I have to admit that the trailers look good, although I'm going to see it with low expectations and hope to be pleasantly surprised. Anyone seen it and want to share an advance review?
