Easy Does It
One year, as a surprise, the TOH offices closed early the Friday before Memorial Day. Our colleague Jami put out the invite: Meet for burgers on her patio. Jami was a new mom, and had to stop at the store on the way home, but even so, she made the burger bash seem effortless. She sizzled the patties while we played with her boys. She let us grab the paper plates. All that was left was opening a bag of chips.
Entertaining is only as stressful as you let it be, especially when you realize it’s about the fun of connecting and not the silverware you use. Thanks for those burgers and the life advice, Jami!
So this spring, just go for it. Do a Sunday brunch. Pack a picnic. Have a friend over for a glass of something cold. For that, I recommend the most refreshing spring tonic in all the land, Rhubarb Punch, page 60.
And if you need a little reason to say awww today…check out our Mom’s Famous Chicken feature, page 40. These guys love their mamas. And you will love their mamas’ chicken dishes. They are simple, so delicious and
100 percent rooted in love.
