What Should I Do When My Friend Is Always Late for Dinner? Always. — #askingforafriend

I love hosting dinner parties. Seriously, I live for them and can't wait to plan the next one. Because I plan carefully, I want people to show up on time. I certainly don't expect everyone to sit down and eat right when they get there, so I usually serve something small with cocktails while we wait for everyone to arrive.

But what do I do about people who aren't just 30 minutes late, but an hour or more? If I invite you for a meal at 7:30, is it really too much to expect you to be ready to sit down to eat at 8:30? Being late to a dinner party is so disrespectful. What's wrong with people? Do they hate me? I've had it up to here. I'm ready to quit hosting and just make nice dinners for myself, to eat alone while watching Netflix.

Ready to Eat

Dear Ready to Eat,

As I'm sure you know, this isn't a new problem. And I can't make your guests show up on time, but I may be able to help you find some peace.

10 Insider Rules for Navigating a French Farmers Market — The Kitchn Abroad

As I push my way through the market — dodging baby strollers and impossibly sharp metal shopping caddies; pressing through the crowd toward my preferred fruit and vegetable stall like a salmon swimming upstream; observing the guy next to me manhandle the lettuce that will soon be selected to go into my basket; seeing the utter delight, appreciation, and surprise light up the face of the elderly woman who was offered to move ahead in line by a gracious fellow shopper — I realize that a French marketplace is a microcosm.

It's a reflection of French society as a whole, with its own codes and rules of behavior — a market etiquette, if you will — that are known and understood only by those who have grown up living the experience.

A Visual Guide to Juicing Vegetables: How Many Veggies Go in a Cup? — Your Juice Habit

I love juicing. My juicer has earned its place as a mainstay on my kitchen counter, and we do our tango, as I haphazardly throw a bit of kale and a cucumber down its chute. Maybe a beet. Maybe a head of lettuce. Definitely a lemon and some ginger. I don't really pay attention to measurements or quantities. We make all sorts of combos. I usually end up drinking it out of a quart-sized mason jar with a straw. It's not fancy.

But what happens when you do pay attention to measurements? Ever wonder how many veggies it takes to make that expensive green juice you're picking up at the juice bar? For the first time, I measured several of my favorite juicing veggies and the quantity it would take to equal a cup of their juice. The results were unexpected! Check it out.
