The proud owners of Gather
Do those folks look familiar? Yes, Gather is actually the name we have given to our new in-house restaurant (AKA the dining room). It all came about when I decided to make a banner for our newly-painted dining space, and thought "gather" would be a suitable slogan. Little did I know that I had tapped into a cultural zeitgeist! Our lovely Bay Area friends, who were visiting at the time, told us about a fabulous-sounding critically-acclaimed restaurant in Berkeley that went by the same name. So, what was there to do, but celebrate with pizza at our new "restaurant"?

Since then, we've enjoyed "cooking at Gather" and it has re-invigorated our meal planning and the way we think about making dinner.

A satisfied customer
I recently read a blog post about the importance of play, and I think that may be why we so enjoy the Gather concept. Turning a daily chore into something of a game makes the process all the more fun. After all, the stories we tell, and the games we play, can turn our lives from something rather dull to something exciting (or at least, something more interesting). So, here's to many more meals at Gather... you know who to contact for reservations!
