I've never been into the cleaning, I still have a housekeeper, because I just can't. But I love feeding the boy, his friends, the little cousins. It makes me happy to feed little kids, way more than feeding adults.
But in college and pre-marriage, a couple of Yoplaits in the fridge and a bottle of vodka in the freezer was all I needed. I ate out a lot, often with rich older men, wise in the ways of food.
