Cooking Across the Miles: Here's a Fun Way to Keep in Touch With Friends & Family by Melinda Sharp
My daughter was brainstorming ideas to stay in touch with her mother-in-law who lives in a different state. We bantered back this or that while we were in Target. (Why can I not buy only one thing in Target?? No self-control.) We were looking for the cookbook, Magnolia Table, and she bought two copies and I bought a copy. We decided it would be fun to all connect by selecting recipes from the book and sharing our outcomes through texting and pictures.
I can't tell you how much fun this is and how I feel closer to my daughter than ever before – and am getting to know her mother-in-law, too! Plus, at least I am trying something new in the kitchen (I'm not a very creative nor even good cook, especially in trying new recipes). I added my own challenge each time we select a recipe by trying to make it with the best ingredients at the lowest price, so it forces me to shop better.
As the holidays come around again, I am going to reach out to my friends who are far and wide and invite us to stay connected by sharing meals from the same cookbook. Long live family and friends and sharing meals together!
