Where I am from,one of the markings of good woman is one who feeds guests first. I used to believe that too until i spent a few holidays with my grandmother and we were always hungry and cranky. Not because there was no food, but because guests are a demanding lot. They do not give one a chance to sit and relax and enjoy a meal. So i changed that philosophy to, eat first feed your guests when you are full. i tell everyone who is hosting this. they always look at me like i am a crazy greedy woman. Well yesterday it happened again, i said we should eat before the guests, i got the look and I backed down from my hard stance. let us just say i lived to regret it. i did not get to eat anything last night!!!
Well that will teach me!! We have life lessons for a reason. so life lesson, eat before your guests arrive and that will make you a more accommodating host.
