About Saturday Night Suppers

I have not done as much entertaining as I would like in the last few years. There always seems to be something that needs to be done or gets in the way. Not fun things either - things like cleaning the house or getting it properly decorated before having guests in or worrying that the menu and cooking won‘t stand up to snuff. Lately I keep thinking about that quote from Erma Bombeck, “I would have invited friends over to dinner even if the carpet was stained and the sofa faded.” The quote was part of a list she made of things she regretted not doing after she found out she was dying from cancer.

My wish is for everyone to have a nonexistent, or at least a very short, list of regrets, and then only minor ones. The above is one I am going to cross off of mine because I do plan to enjoy being surrounded by my family and friends on a more regular basis. I love to cook for people and to watch everyone enjoying themselves. If some things flop (which they will) then so be it. It will provide a good laugh I am sure.
