I decided to host a lunch bunch instead of a craft tutorial. So I made soup. Chili, Roasted Butternut, and Chicken Noodle. And of course there was bread for sopping up the soup: sourdough, rye, and corn bread (recipe below).
Women and children came. Children came in the door and went straight back to the racetrack in the backyard. Women had a chance to chat and chat and chat. It was great!
The children eventually came into play. I hope that women had a chance to build relationships for whatever is needed now or later.
