The Art of Bartering With Food

The Art of Bartering With Food



We all need a favor at some point. The problem with  favors is that you always owe them back, indefinitely. Like Bing Crosby in White Christmas. But there is a solution and that solution is bribery. Cooking as defined by most of my friends can be summed up in two succinct phrases "take-out" and "microwave". Home-made treats are so few and far between that, "Can you help me lay down the flooring in my house all weekend?" suddenly becomes appealing when you add "I just made spaghetti". Bonus prize for overachievers, ask over someone you fancy. One home cooked meal and he'll be uh checking your pipes and other home repairs in no time.
