Because of COVID I stopped going out to eat with friends as a regular thing. In fact, I stopped even going out to eat or getting take out at all. I can't remember the last time I didn't cook my own meal.

A bit like it's just dead-time? Why not instead turn something that was once a chore into a full, deliberate, and shared experience?
