Cooking up a fool storm

I am just cooking like a whirlwind: we're going over to see some friends tomorrow for games and possibly movies. Since they're very kindly hosting, I offered to cook. I'm making:

Hors d'oeuvre: Herb-parmesan cheese ball rolled in toasted pecans and smoked almonds
Salad: Arugula with peppers and tomatoes (straight from my dear co-worker's garden), drizzled with homemade balsamic vinaigrette and shaved Pecorino cheese
Entrée: Pork with artichokes and capers, served over Great-Aunt Ruth's brown rice casserole (I added portobella mushrooms; I don't think she'd mind)
Dessert: Amaretto pound cake with fresh strawberries and crème Chantilly

I've just pulled the cake out of the oven, and it smells divine. It's going to be hard to resist come breakfast time tomorrow.

I really hope everything turns out well and that they'll like it. I've made everything other than the dessert at least once before, so I feel reasonably confident.
