A great way to enjoy some fellowship and practice my language skills is to have people over to my house. It is a great opportunity to get to know some people from the church and to do that I need to speak Portuguese. I have found myself able to speak Portuguese easier the more that I have people over. One of the draw backs of having people over is that I get tired and after having people over. It normally takes me at least an hour to wind down after having a family over for an evening but on the upside I normally get a good nights sleep after.
Another bonus to having people over is that I get to cook for not just myself Most single people I know find it difficult, to some extent, to cook for themselves. Most recipes that I know are for 4 people and you end up putting in the same effort even if you only make one serving. However, when I have people over I get to think about different foods that I am craving which I would like to share with my guests. Recently I have been craving American comfort food (Bacon Mac & Cheese, with grilled beef) and Thai food (Chicken Satay and Curry Pasta) which are two of the recent meals that I made for my friends.
