The tradition in my house for birthdays and other special days: the honored person gets the day off from all household chores, and gets to decide what to eat. From appetizers and snacks, through entrees, sides, and dessert, it’s all selected by the honoree and made by someone else. Something became very obvious when this tradition started, and continues to the present:
If we are grateful for our lives, enough is as good as a feast.
If we are not, no feast will ever be enough.
