This Summer Garbanzo Tomato Salad is delightful to enjoy or serve to guests any time of year, but especially with fresh garden tomatoes and fresh herbs.
I think about the homes we are given and how they meet our needs. When we bought our current home, ten years ago, we had big dreams to entertain a lot of people and enjoy it to its fullest. I’d say we’ve accomplished that, and more. But there’s one thing that’s quite different between me and my husband. I’d entertain every night if I could, and so this has caused a bit of discord between us. Not in a bad way, because every marriage has things that have to be worked through, and we learn to come to a happy medium. My husband has been over-the-top accommodating of my desires to have party after party, and I’d say he’s learned to come on board and enjoy it with me. I’d never host like we do if Paul didn’t enjoy it as well. The one thing I’ve learned though, like last night when I texted him while up the street at Home Depot, if we could invite a couple over, is to not get upset or get my feelings hurt when he needs a break.
