So we had friends for dinner Saturday. On the menu: Steak (on the BBQ) grilled fresh asparagus, roasted red potatoes, green salad and homemade mozzarella cheese bread. We had death by chocolate brownies and chocolate dipped strawberries for dessert. It was so much fun! We sat around the table laughing and talking for hours. Then so as not to let all that "clean go tot waste, we also had guests for Easter Brunch. Which consisted of home made cinnamon rolls, quiche, ham and fresh fruit salad. Are you drooling yet?
Hubby and I used to have people over on a regular basis for meals and somehow over the years, with our jobs consuming us, busyness of raising children, and plain ole laziness on my part, we just got out of the habit. One of the aspects of making our houses feel like home is that vital relationship with others. Not only is the fellowship necessary, our children will be moving on some day, and we need to continue to nurture our friendships so that we still have friends when the kids do move on. I guess for us it was the weekend for entertaining and hanging out with great friends. Not to mention all of the cooking, which I love to do. I find it relaxing to putz around in the kitchen with some music playing and just doing my own thing in my own little world. It sparked in me, a new commitment to get out of the "slump" and start making our home a gathering place once again a priority.
Hope you had a wonderful weekend. Please join me Tuesday for more on my flooring series.
