Phil is a very warm and welcoming person, it was really nice of him having me, Jay and Nick over for dinner. He shared his awesomely tasty southern style fried chicken, with black bean salad and garlic lemon broccoli. It was one of those very rare delicious and healthy meals that you could have. it was really fun talking about everything with him. I hope everyone is as good of a host as Phill is.

Phil is a perfect Meal Sharing host! He really knows how to make a simple but extremely tasty dinner. The fried chicken he made was absolutely delicious! My friends and I had a blast talking about a wide variety of topics and it was a pleasure speaking to someone who was very open minded. Phil radiates a warmth and kindness that cannot be replicated. Don't miss an opportunity to mealshare with Phil! You will be guaranteed to leave his home very happy :) Also, he gave me an awesome gift before I left, some authentic Norwegian cheese! (see pic)
