We had friends lived out of state that we had invited for lunch as they were going to be in our neighborhood. I had planned on offering them a home cooked meal. My husband suggested taking them to a restaurant as he thought that if I didn't have to cook and cleanup that I would have more time to enjoy my company. At first I didn't think it was a good idea but then the more I thought about it the more it made sense. So off we went to a restaurant & had a great time and yes, I did have more time to enjoy my company.
Yes! It's so much nicer to enjoy your company than having to fuss. I find a nice compromise sometimes, in getting a few ready-cooked chickens, and making side dishes (ie. cole slaw, potato salad)a day ahead. Home-cooked "feel", much less time consuming. Other times, I do a roast a day ahead.
Company should be fun, not a chore : )
