With class parties, teacher toasts, birthdays, year-end gifts and kick off the summer BBQ’s, like many of you, I’ve been particularly busy. Thankfully though, I’ve had my friends to help me get through this end-of-the-year craziness, especially in the kitchen.
The process of making a jumbo corn salad and coleslaw that can serve 40 for a teacher toast would have put me in the loony bin if I didn’t have Liz to make them with me. Instead, we cranked out the salads in less than two hours and actually appreciated the time we had together during such a busy time of year.
My kids’ teachers never would have gotten homemade biscotti if I had to make it by myself — It’s just too darn busy this time of year! They can thank my friend Jackie for nudging me to pick a biscotti-baking date!
And, lastly, there’s my family, who certainly wouldn’t have had curry puffs for dinner if I hadn’t made them with Debbie one soggy, rainy day.
A sigh of relief, for the school season is over. Cooking with friends unquestionably helped me accomplish all that I did. Now begins another season of cooking together, one that’s fun and creative, and an opportunity to spend time with friends between vacations.
