First, came the Banana Bread. Then the Chocolate Chip cookies and a jar of homemade Apple Butter. Delicious gifts from our new neighbors, coming by to say hi when we moved into our new house this month. No matter your age, your work or your politics, food is the ultimate common denominator. We so appreciate these thoughtful treats.
Neighbors make great cooking partners. You can run back and forth from each others’ houses for another pot, a forgotten ingredient or an extra container. When we went to our neighbors’ Emily and Jim’s house for dinner this week, I volunteered happily to help chop the salad, and I look forward to more cooking adventures with the people around us.
