Recipe for a Lovely Afternoon:
A couple of girlfriends (They can be new or old, as long as they like to laugh. They must not mind the family dog or the clutter on the desk.)
Food (Homemade, store bought, or some combination of both)
A kitchen table
A pitcher of fresh flowers (Optional but nice to have)
Then add lots of warm conversation and mix in some tips.
We started out planning to meet at a restaurant. While trying to think of a quiet place where we would be able to hear ourselves, it occurred to me that we could get together at my house. I would have liked to set the patio table, but some serious March wind altered that plan. So, I went for casual spring kitchen table ambiance.
My second attempt at the Joanna look turned out better than the first. Who knew putting fern leaves in bottles could be such an epic fail?
You may have noticed that I don't share food or recipes here much. There is a good reason for that. I am a short cut meals kind of girl. I picked up rolls, salad, and lemon and rosemary chicken breasts at Central Market. I did make a yummy Cucumber Tomato Avocado Salad. I can chop vegetables and squeeze lemons with the best of them.
My friends brought goodies, too. Best of all, they brought themselves.
There's nothing wrong with meeting at a restaurant, but I think getting together in a kitchen is even better.
