Yesterday Robert and Mira hosted a New Year’s Day brunch party featuring Robert’s World Famous Tortilla Soup and a group of friends and family. Robert and Mira were short on time as the party started at 9:30 in the morning and they had not gotten to bed until midnight the night before. And some serious cooking and cleanup needed to happen before people arrived. Robert got up and began working at 6 am. Mira joined him at 7, grumbling and mumbling under her breath as she gave the kitchen floor a last minute scrub. Perhaps questioning the wisdom of the brunch itself. But Robert had faith. He always has faith in Mira. He knew that after cleaning that floor she would take a shower, get dressed, put on her game face, and be a wonderful host. She always is.
