Drive for hours to Grandmother’s house with an oversugared toddler, a teenager who hates you right now and a dog that needs a whisperer. Toss and turn on leaky air mattresses while your brother’s family gets the beds.

Start turkey prep and Bloody Marys at dawn. Nurse a grudge against the sister-in-law who’s sleeping in and covets your family’s heirloom silverware. Wake her up by tuning every TV in the house to football except for the one tuned to cartoons. Cook All Day. Have

More Bloody Marys. Bring up the time your mother missed your 5th grade Christmas play. When she protests it was 25 years ago, slam out of the house and wait for someone to beg you to come back in. Preferably your heartless mother. Count the silverware as you wash it. Count the days until December 25. Count to 10 and pump up the mattress. Cover copy by Nikki Hardin, art by Renia Metallinou

I am a person who yearns to throw memorable dinner parties. You know the kind in books and movies—wine bottles littering the rustic table, strings of lights in the trees, creative types quoting T.S. Eliot, a moon rising above the trees. But even more, I yearn to have people cook for me because it speaks to me of love. Here is my earliest memory of a meal: I’m on the floor in my grandmother’s kitchen behind the wood stove, asking for bacon. Is it a real memory? Or one I’ve been told? If it’s not real, I have made it so. I can see the dusty linoleum, smell the thick-cut bacon frying, see the turkey feathers my grandmother used to clean the stove top. “I want meat,” is my demand as the only grandchild, the golden girl, the chubby little dark-haired girl in a pinafore. A few years later, I wake up in a cold bedroom under piles of quilts. I can hear the low murmur of the farm report on the radio. It means my grandfather is up and has awakened the slumbering fire in the stove while my grandmother dresses. I dash from the warmth of my bed through the icy dining room into the kitchen, where we worship at the wood stove. Bacon—always lovely, crisp, thick bacon. Toast, made in the oven and retrieved with a long, two-pronged fork. Eggs, gently turned and eased onto a plate. Real butter. Plum preserves from the tree I can see just outside the window. Smoky, strong tea, brewed from a strainer in the cup by my plate. I’m a child, but my grandparents give me hot, sugary tea every morning. Having tasted heaven I will never be a fast-food child. Having tasted love, I will always remember it.

I’ve found things like a short interview with one of my heroes, Peter Beard, and American Autumn, a parody of a Woody Allen movie acted by elementary school kids.
