I know this isn't my food blog, but

Last Wednesday, I made tacos for two of my friends, and on Friday I helped my other friend prepare some cheese fondue and hummus. I didn't take a single picture, but I wanted to make sure I saved the memory of it here.

It makes me happy when I get to cook for my friends. It makes me happier when I see them enjoying my food, and it makes me even happier when everyone lends a hand in cleaning up. It seems to be the socially acceptable thing to do, to not have your guest help you clean up afterwards, but I always, always, feel better if the dishes are done and the tables are wiped before moving on to the next part of the night.

I don't think I'd ever want to feel obligated to prepare meals for other people. I'd never want this to be my job, or to have family that I needed to cook for. But I like having a friend or two join me for my meals.
