Guess Who's Coming to Dinner?

Well you know as much as I do about some of tomorrow night's guests.  I offered to host a dinner party tomorrow night for 3 friends of friends that are here from Italy.  There will be 8 of us altogether; and the theme will be Italian.  

What was I thinking; making it an Italian theme?  Am I out of my mind.  These people are from Italy, could anything we make possibly hold up to their standards?  When I originally agreed to this dinner I exciting.  Now, after 2 days of thinking about it non-stop, I realize I'm really nervous.   Yes, we're Italian and yes we cook Italian food all the time but this is so different.

My friend Christina is doing the appetizer and Merriam the dessert. So all we really need to focus on is the main course.  We've decided to do a Bolognese and we're going to use a recipe from our favorite Italian chef Mario Batali.  The recipe claims to be very traditional.  We'll find out soon enough. 
Wish me luck.
