A group chat to start this weekend

👨‍🍳 Today’s tip: To keep a friendship feeling energized, start a food thread.

Having a group chat to share what you’re cooking and eating comes with a few key benefits: One, it’s a place to unapologetically brag about your quarantine cooking projects. Two, it’s a source of new ideas for when those projects start to feel stale.

Most importantly, it’s a way to feel connected to the people in your life even if you can’t see each other IRL. You might not be able to go out to dinner together, but you can still bond over food.
