Hosting tips

When people come to your house for dinner, they want to spend time with you! That’s why I delegate, take short cuts when needed, and plan ahead, so I can be “present” when guests are here. This salad is easy to make ahead!

This quote sums up hosting … it’s never a waste of time. Never.

“For is there any practice less selfish, any labor less alienated, any time less wasted, than preparing something delicious and nourishing for people you love?” ― Michael Pollan

Something always fantastic comes from having people over, whether the words spoken, stories shared, recipe inspired, or even physical touch.

That doesn’t mean I’m not doing last-minute things. Hosting is never perfect, and timing always gets off, at least for me.

We love to hug our guests when they walk through the door! You, too?
