The other night I had some friends over for dinner (check back later for some awesome grilling recipes!) and managed to churn out quite the deliciously impressive grilled menu. I love cooking for other people because it gives me filling validation. There aren’t many things as rewarding as someone reaching for a large second helping, or a plate licked clean.
My family always gathered together for dinner. Even amid the chaos of three very busy kids with very different schedules; without fail, we always share a meal together at the dinner table. I know I’m in the minority, but even now I will feel a little odd when people don’t find a communal dinner necessary. So I try to continue my family tradition. Invite people to your dinner table, fill them with food, and basque in the afterglow of good company and a meal well served.
