I have Lidia Bastianich's recipe for Italian American Lasagna, but there is no way I'm making this. It's got roughly 20 ingredients and 2 pages worth of instructions. None of the steps are particularly difficult, but the sheer amount of work and attention just makes it not worth my time.
I guess what I'm saying is: you ESJFs are amazing with organization and stick-to-it-iveness.

Host that go "just do whatever!" strike me as lazy and I don't know what to do with myself.

"Pour in the tomatoes and the tomato paste and stir until the paste is
dissolved. Season lightly with salt. Bring to a boil, adjust the heat to
a lively simmer, and cook, uncovered, stirring often, until the sauce
takes on a deep, brick-red color, 2 to 3 hours. Add the hot water,
1/2 cup at a time, as necessary to maintain the level of liquid for the
length of time the sauce cooks." Just a small part of the instructions from Lidia's recipe
The bold part is where I said to myself, "No freakin way".All together now, sing it! "All we are saying is give walls a chance."

I was raised in a heavy Italian-American tradition in which it is considered highly disgraceful to have a guest even lift a finger. Basically what we'd do is have lots of appetizers ready, and lots of sports games outside and indoor games prepared, good television, and encourage people to mingle. Even though guests could not work, they were given plenty of opportunities to ensure they wouldn't be bored. Hospitality is key. Our houses were even arranged inside in such a way that benefited the possibility of guests.
But for productive people like me, I tend to like lending a hand anyways, so why not encourage people like us to help out? Lately I've been happy with the idea of cooking parties, where a dish is the main event and people are invited to help out making it and then enjoy the fruits of their labor.
