Food, glorious food!
It's a gourmet club night. Looking forward to Hungarian! For those of you who don't know our process: each couple hosts once during the year. That couple gets to pick the theme and the recipes. Those recipes are distributed to the other five couples and that is the dish they bring. Fantastic concept. We get to try new things, both in the creation and the consumption. Some have been better than others. Truthfully, some recipes don't need repeating, and that's okay, too. You see, it's never been about the food. It's always been an excuse for the 12 (11, 10, 9, 8 depending on busy schedules!) of us to be together. Six of the twelve are former students! All 10 of the non-Zubke's are amazing individuals, with diverse interests, occupations, families and have an amazing relationship with their spousal units. We've watched their kids grow into outstanding young adults...literally. We will laugh. We might sing. We will drink a little (?) wine. We'll probably belch and fart (the latter surreptitiously!). And we'll revel in the fact that there is a love that binds us together--more as a family than as friends. Life for me is about the food...and the people with whom you share it. The gourmand in me anticipates new tastes. The friend in me anticipates good times. And the appreciative writer in me thanks you! Know you are loved!
