I had a house full of guests one weekend. Even though I had put thought into the meals, the cabbage soup was WAY boring, and the following day, the baked potatoes and chicken were really tough. Right after the guests left, I got the inspiration, energy, and ingredients (miracle!) to make spinach pasta and my own sauce. Boy, for a first try at making my own pasta, it was delicious! My guests had gone, and the joy of it was only shared with Jacob and the kids. Sometimes life is like that.
