When you go to make your next reservation for dinner, consider this: stay home. Invite your four favorite people over for Saturday night dinner and spend the evening cooking together and laughing as you make your way through a new recipe and a bottle of wine. As you toast your efforts, tally up the bill for that same evening out at a restaurant and make a donation in that amount to a charity of the host's choice. What a wonderful way to celebrate what we have and share it with others. These days, dining out is out. Giving back is in.
"It is around the table that friends understand best the warmth of being together." aha!
