Yesterday, Lindsey and I gathered to make all sorts of wonderful yet time consuming foods. It was a lot of fun and a lot of work. I made two batches of herbs de Provence pasta and coco granola, while Lindsey made two batches of mozzarella and some cookies. All told, we did about 4 hours worth of cooking and gabbing.
This made me wish that I had a bunch of friends and family a bit closer (Lindsey lives 40 minutes away and gas is getting crazy). It was so nice to have company while making things that require a bit more time and muscle. Women used to regularly gather to get the bigger chores done, and I think that it is sad that we so rarely do that anymore because everything is so much nicer with friends.
Everything’s better with friends:
