"If there’s a world here in a hundred years, it’s going to be saved by tens of millions of little things. The powers-that-be can break up any big thing they want. They can corrupt it or co-opt it from the inside, or they can attack it from the outside. But what are they going to do about 10 million little things? They break up two of them, and three more like them spring up!"

Guests serving guests

The project:
Make dinner for our hosts' guests.

30 minutes including prep, but not bake time. I mean, come one, does visiting while the OVEN does the heavy work really count!? ;)

Why bother?
The relatives hosting us this week are really busy, too. Today, they all happened to be at work while we, one set of guests, welcomed another set during an overlapping visit. I know where (some) things are in the kitchen, and we'd packed some groceries for the visit, so this seemed like the perfect day to put dinner on the table.

An added plus: when our hostess returned home from work, her steaming plate of scrumptious dinner was, quite literally, on the table for her.

Worth it?
Yes. We shared a family favorite, and everyone reaped the benefits.
