Sharing Food with Friends
Today is a day of sharing food. For lunch, I'm meeting with a group of colleagues at the Ward Street Cafe.
For dinner, I'm going top visit my good friend at her home in Menlo Park. We're celebrating her birthday, which is on the 14th. Just 5 years ago, she went into labor on the eve of her birthday. This is a special day for her and her family. I'm looking forward to spending time with them and sharing food with them.
After all, good food shared with good company is hard to beat. That's what I crave. She'll be preparing traditional Persian food, which is such a treat. Yum! These are the moments to savor in life...laughing, good conversation, sharing, savoring flavors, etc. Whenever I can, I share meals with friends or family. It's nice to eat in quiet sometimes too, but given the choice, I'll pick a full table, with food cooked with love....it just tastes better. It even improves digestion, all those good feelings.
How about you? What are your shared meals like? How do they make you feel? What do you crave?
