One of the biggest things Sarah and I were excited about with our new living arrangements, was having more margin in the kitchen and dinning arenas. Less than month and a half into our new digs, we've settled into a 2 dinner per week cycle, (tues and either sat/sat). Last night we had some Chicken Cacciatore with a good old-buddy, now a new Grad Student at UNL, and her missionary mother (fresh in from New Guinea). This week will see us host a friend from work and his lady, and on Sat we are doing brunch with a couple we friended at Panic a few years ago. We love the intimacy of our wooden-floored dinning room, no TV, no phones, just good company and good food.
Conflict surrounds us in this day and age. Facebook and the American-Media-Beast will always have something new and exciting to either fear, distrust, or rail against. A home filled with Love and Good Food, opened to weary wayfarers, is but one way to Fight the Hate in the World. Sarah and me? we're fighters for Love :)
