Last night, I made spur of the moment plans to host Sunday dinner with some friends. I started baking first thing this morning--dinner rolls and pie crusts. Chicken was marinating before church. I was so excited! Dinner turned out amazing! The chicken was moist and flavorful. The potatoes were delightful. The salad was a perfect accent. My dinner rolls were a hit, as always. The pies were beautiful.
But honestly, for as delicious as the food was, the thing that made me happy (and always makes me happy about hosting) is the way people look so happy and content after. (A big part of that might be that my friends are all college students, and I'm pretty sure I eat much differently than they do... Dinners like this are a treat.)
