Here’s an idea for our college student readers. It’s difficult for one person to make an entire meal for their friends, but perhaps you can plan a party with your dorm mates where each person is responsible for one portion of the meal. It’s kind of like a pot-luck, except you go from room to room for each course, hence a progressive dinner. Maybe you already know about this concept, but my husband and I recently had such a good time going to a progressive dinner at four restaurants that it reminded me that I had tried out this concept when I was in college. It’s a fun way to keep the evening moving, literally.

Happy Cooking!
