Thought for the week..#249

Posted in Food & Entertaining, and Things We Love

When I invite you over, I meant it. I mean: Sit down. I will take care of you. I will buy the food and get the drinks and set the table and do the cooking, and I will clean up after. And when I come to your house, you will do the same. I will get to have the honor of being a guest. To perfectly show up, 10 minutes after the appointed time, with a bottle in hand for you, to bring my outgoing, conversational self, my good mood, my appetite, and to then enjoy all that is offered to me, and to then get my coat at the very end and leave without having lifted a finger. It is the greatest thing of all time.

  2. Gabrielle Hamilton is wonderful writer. Loved this piece. I read her first book twice.

    • Me too. I loved it. And it is so unfair that one person would be so talented at both cooking and writing!
