A few years ago, my sister-in-law gave me a beautiful book entitled The Gathering of Friends, which I keep out at all times. Not only are the pictures on each page beautiful, but the recipes themselves are recipes that just speak the word “home” when you read them,. At the front of the book on the first page it reads, “When someone comes to your home and sits at your table and breaks bread with you, your relationship is forever changed.”
I reread that this morning while searching for this recipe and it was a gentle reminder that as the fall season approaches, while gathering pumpkins to grace decorated tables or gathering just the perfect recipes to set before our families, I want to set a goal to gather more than material things. As time goes faster and schedules get more hectic. let’s take some time to “gather a new friend” and add them to our lives. The food, the decorations and the house will be so much sweeter.

One of our favorite breads to have with soups and salads is Parmesan Toast. It is quick and easy and tastes great no matter what season you serve it.
1/2 cup mayo
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
1 loaf of French Bread
Slice bread to desired thickness. Blend the mayo, butter and Parmesan. Spread on bread slices and broil till golden.
