We recently had a couple of new friends over, having barely met them. I served Crock Pot Pork Roast, and this Cucumber Lime Shaven Slaw Recipe.

Easy menu. Great conversation, and new friends!

The anxiety of having new people over can be real. But if we learn to care less about our performance, and more about the people (getting to know them, what makes them tick, what their passions are, more about them … ) we truly can find joy in the process!

You know that saying, that anxiety has eyes all over its head. It’s swamping, overwhelming, and it steals from what should be. So many people are scared in life right now, and our fears stop us from so many blessings.

Hope looks to the future. Resentment looks back.

When anxiety rears her ugly head, hope exits every time!!

One small way to make a change is to start with a simple meal.

Ask a person or 2 to come and join you.

Don’t worry about things being perfect. And if you do happen to worry about your house, invite them to your front yard, or your back yard! Bring dinner outside!

I recently read The Tourquoise Table by Kristin Schell.

Kristin started a movement in her front yard. It makes me think of how much we all need friends and conversation. This book is about slowing down, encouraging easy ways to connect in our neighborhoods and communities, but there’s more.

The Tourquoise Table is about simple hospitality, and why we should practice it.

I wrote a similar book back in 2009, so this book is an updated version, in an even busier, chaotic world!

Even in our small, unorganized, imperfect spaces, we can share our lives.

This Cucumber Lime Shaven Slaw Recipe only takes a few minutes to prepare.

Shave the red cabbage by slicing very thinly with a sharp knife!

Make ahead, and pull out of the fridge when dinner’s on the table!

Even more delicious if you have pork cooking in the slow cooker!

Food is where it’s at, Friends!

It’s the conduit to great things!
