I'm thinking of having an actual sit-down dinner next weekend so have been thinking of dinners in our past. Two of them were actually blogged for posterity, so here are the links to:
Colonialism in the Pacific Rim Themed Dinner for Eight (Rex did the actual write-up, in case you couldn't tell)
Americans Eating Kale: a Dinner Party for Eight
It makes me all nostalgic for the days when I was a graduate student and actually had time to think about these kinds of things. But rather than mourning the past, I'm thinking of them as benchmarks to reach for in the future. Excelsior!
