When this dinner is being enjoyed, look at the others you share your table with and watch them with satisfaction knowing you are now establishing how each of them define what a good cook is. Then after the meal tell them it is bad luck for a cook to also have to clean and that they need to repay your efforts by helping clear the table. If they seem hesitant simply ask if they would ever like to eat again and watch how quickly they move to clear the dirty crockery. Just kidding on that last part… or am I?
