Some time ago, I realized that the art of friendship is not an easy one. I think all of us have thought, at one time or another, why do I have to reach out, why don’t they? The truth is that if you want friends you have to do the work.
We are a small family and have no family where we live, and this has been the case for some time in various locales. So building family, building community, matters to us.
I have a few passions and cooking is one of them. I am a passable home cook. Not one of those people that can just whip up a cake from memory, but I can produce a pretty nice dinner. And my husband’s new smoker inspired us to the summer barbecue.
All of this has motivated us to revive our practice of the Sunday dinner with friends. We love to cook, we love to entertain and we love being with those we consider friends. So, this will be a diary of our dinners. I hope you find some humor and maybe a good food idea or two.
