"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!"
- Pete Seeger, in YES! Magazine

Bring and Cook Dinner for Busy Host

The project:
Plan ahead, bring groceries and make dinner for our host family during our holiday travels.

45 minutes including shopping and cooking.

Why bother?
It's great to have guests, but sometimes its rough on a host family that's super busy. I don't want to create MORE work for my already busy hostess, so the girls and I selected something we like to eat (and enjoy making) and had dinner ready when our host family arrived home.

Worth it?
Absolutely. Less work for them. Same chore I would have done at home. Plus, the kids (and everyone else) were happy with their dinner.
