I host a monthly gathering in my home for friends and family. My goal each month is to do something I've never done before, whether it's making tamales or homemade pasta. Each month there is a definite theme. It could be a region of the world such as Basque country or it could be a topic such as steam punk. Typically I have between 12-16 guinea pigs...oops, I mean people for supper and many times I have a waiting list as any more than 16 people just won't work in my tiny home. When I'm not thinking about or planning the menu for the next gathering, I'm trying out the latest restaurant offerings nearby. I guess you could say I've got food on my mind most all the time.
