Impressing the Fam

I don't know about you, readers, but when my parents or extended family come to visit us in Philadelphia, I feel compelled to impress them, to show them that I'm not only an adult, but I'm a pretty great adult.

Readers, do you have any special things you do to prepare for special visitors? Any great summery recipes you want to share?
