On a day that was raining
And I should have been blue
I did something so wonderfully fun
That you could easily do too!
I hosted a Pampered Chef party
7+ freezer meals we each took away.
It was all about food and friendship,
Is there a better way to spend a day?
At first I anxiously wondered
“Would people really want to come?”
It’s one of “THOSE kinds of parties?”
To my invite would friends just feel numb?
But within just a few minutes
Of a hitting a keystroke for “send”
Six, Seven, Eight pinged YES!
“Absolutely I’ll come, thank you my friend!”
I was overwhelmed and overjoyed
I had no idea of such proclivity,
Of so many Pampered Chef mavens out there
Who are looking for just such a festivity!
Longtime friends and those that are new
Came to partake in all the fun fixins.
We laughed, we chopped, we connected,
And all I had to provide was my kitchen.
No, I don’t sell Pampered Chef
That’s the job of my dear friend.
I just love finding new ways to connect,
A passion that seems to have no end.
Women, so often we find ourselves stretched
Our families we work hard to please ’em.
And finding time to actually cook?
That’s scarcer than a Mariners winning season! D’Oh!
Increasingly we live disconnected
And we’re thinking of ways to thaw the freeze.
Why not let Pampered Chef do all the work
And you just toss ‘em your keys?
Why not start a monthly Pampered Chef group?
A regular gathering for good food and wine.
You could enjoy dinner together,
Letting friendship develop over time.
Use Facebook, use your directory
Or put a postcard invite on their porch.
Pampered Chef enthusiasts are lurking everywhere
See if they’re living outside your front door!
As the dark days of winter draw nearer
And the Seattle sleet starts to pound on your roof
I pray you won’t let S.A.D. have its way
And you won’t choose to be aloof.
Instead, think about taking that risk
The one you’ve been putting on hold.
Now is a great time to open up your heart,
To increase that friendship circle, come on, be bold!
I had the greatest time in my kitchen
With new friends and with old.
Think about hosting a Freezer Meal Workshop
You just never know what connection might unfold.
