Friends, in a way I like to think of hosting a dinner as an adventure. No two dinner parties are alike. The people around the table, the conversation, the food served. It’s exciting and there’s always some sort of a newness that is refreshing to the soul. Because it involves food and connection.

Serve this fresh and lovely Pear Cranberry Endive Appetizer at your next party, and set the table with fresh pears!

People have hearts and souls and opinions and ideas. Their stories are worth hearing, and your response can be loving, if you choose it to be. Don’t be insecure, or try to prove a point. Just listen …

At this party, I stood and shut my eyes and took it all in (about a month ago, when we were still enjoying eating outside!)

I thought of our guests who were coming to dinner. I knew that our time would be good. It would not be taken up with wasted chatter or filled with gossip.

While eating our dinner, we’d be talking about things we are passionate about. Mostly relating to people and goals in life.
