The other night, after we put your sister to sleep, your dad and I enjoyed a soup and panini bar. I made acorn squash soup and we had black bean soup from the night before. We put out all the sandwich makings and chose our own combinations.
We like having food we can edit ourselves. When we eat our Thai feasts or our taco bars, we have more condiments than dishes. This way we enjoy our own dishes just the way we want them. Talking about why we made these decisions, what we would do again, what we would do differently brings us closer every time we have a choose-your-own-dinner.
I had the acorn squash soup with sea salt and crispy sage on it.
I’d do it again.
