Sharing a meal...

Kevin and I are social beings. Always have been. Always will be. One of our favorite things to do as a family is to have a meal with another family. Now, granted, that other family needs to have certain attributes which will compliment ours---an awesome sense of humor, only a slight level of shyness, a wild, spontaneous side, moderately similar food tastes and a good amount of forgiveness and understanding for all of the craziness which will transpire during the dinner. Bonus features include: children the same age, close proximity to our house, being able to read Amy's imaginary reader board, being able to be a night owl, and a love of killer UNO. Now that the precendents have been laid for our dinner guests the point of this blog is simply this... a meal tastes better when shared with friends. Hands down. Doesn't matter if it is cold cereal, filet mignon or a five course meal. Not only does it help my taste buds to savor every flavor but it creates awesome memories that we always treasure and remember. Some of our fondest memories are from 12 years ago when we swapped dinner once a week with some dear friends who lived in the same apartment complex as us. Still use many of her recipies. Still visit and stay with them when we head to Utah. Still love them to pieces. When would you like to share a meal?
