Leona is bringing mango pudding for dessert (it is yummy and a ton of work), and her Dad is making red bean paste pastries from scratch (like a dessert cookie thing - he knows I love them). Debating if I should also have a pie. Steve doesn't like pumpkin so would need to be something else.
I need some sort of pre-dinner nibbles.
