Late this afternoon, my wife and I are meeting with an architect to talk about potential renovation ideas for our house.
As baby number three will arrive within the next couple of months, our thoughts about how to arrange the living space between us and our two daughters plus baby has come to the forefront.
But what does this have to do with food right?
Good thing you asked.
For the past couple of days I’ve been consumed with trying to figure out what I should offer, or not offer, to the person coming to chat with us.
In years past, it was customary to offer a refreshment and snack to people who visited your home.
Now it’s more like, “can I get you a glass of water?”
Plus, the person making the house call knows she’s coming to the home of a person who cooks, eats and drinks for a living.
I’m assuming that she may be looking for something a little nicer than tap water.
But what should I have waiting?
Cupcakes? Coffe cake? Muffins?
Brownies, cookies or a slice of cake?
Truth be told, up to this point, I’ve only spoken with her once on the phone and wouldn’t know her face if we passed on the street so I have no idea what she may or may not like.
So what do you suggest my friends? What would you serve in this situation?
