I dug around in the back of my freezer, and behind a half-empty bag of frozen dumplings and some chicken stock, I found one last box.

Setting the table for your dinner party may seem like the job you give to eager guests who insist on helping, but it should be done with care and precision. Sure, you could drop a cup full of plastic forks on the table, but is that really living?
