If you’re one to step out, make the invitation, and then you find yourself stressed – remember that hospitality is not about perfection. It’s about sharing your home, and creating space for others to enjoy themselves. Of course, the conversation is the icing on the cake, my favorite part of the time together.

Find a way that suits your lifestyle and allows connection, and learn to ENJOY, instead of stressing out.

My secret to being able to feed lots of visitors (without spending a ton) is to keep it really simple. Which often translates into me making the main dish (tacos and toppings), and having my guests bring the rest!

If you don’t want to serve tacos, you can serve quinoa or rice bowls, soups, salads, or make a one-pot dish or two!

Sometimes when I’m cooking salmon, I like to make enough so I know I’ll have a plentiful supply of leftovers. Then it’s easy to whip up a plate of fish tacos another day!

Or, you can use snapper, rock fish, or tilapia.
