Feasting Goddesses

I recently saw a refrigerator magnet that said "A Good Cook is Never Lacking in Friends." This gives me pause as to my motives in giving dinner parties. Yet there are few moments of gratification as simple as when a guest praises your food.

I also recently caught a piece of a personality quiz somewhere that asked "Would you rather be a host or a guest at a party?" I'd rather be a host, by a long shot.

Speaking of which, these are the Goddesses enjoying my cooking during my hiatus at home in late September 2005. Since it was immediately post hurricane, we had murky dark gumbo (delicious I might add) in honor of New Orleans and our collectively fond memories of the place...mine anyway. It's really amazing how much noise 8 middle age women can make while also eating and drinking voraciously.

I'm sorry to say that I missed this wonderful Goddess feast while out of town on business. But I always enjoy the food, drink and companionship enjoyed by the goddess friends around a dinner table and look forward to our next fine cuisine adventure. While our food experiences vary, I am always appreciative of your attempts to elevate the fine tastes of your goddess friends. MGW

We missed you too, but equally enjoy your annual Epiphany parties and hope you will continue to host.
