30 Minutes to an Impromptu Gathering
(Because sometimes hasty hosting is the best kind.)
1. Text some friends. Invite everyone to #fridgeforage (read, bring a beverage or foodstuff they have on hand; already opened is A-OK).
2. Swing by the closest market. In 15 minutes or less, grab two fruits, two cheeses, something pickled, something starchy, and some seltzer.
3. At home, in 15 minutes or less, spiff up the kitchen (that’s where everyone ends up anyway). Set out plates and glasses. Take a deep breath.
4. Welcome your guests, turn off your phones, and see what unfolds.
