Have you ever gone to a party where the food just wasn’t as great as you thought it would be? Were there too many starches? Not enough vegetables? Would apple crisp have tasted better with the Thanksgiving turkey as opposed to the lemon cake? Perhaps maybe you were the host, and there were people who didn’t enjoy YOUR food. Unfortunately, the saying does ring true…“you could have the ripest, juiciest, bunch of peaches, but there will still be somebody who doesn’t like peaches.”
With Easter nearing, it may be stressful when thinking about how to prepare the perfect meal for your family and friends. Luckily for you, Beyond Details Catering has provided some tips along with a sample menu to help guide you toward the perfect menu.
Tip #1 – think about ALL of your guests. OPTIONS! OPTIONS! OPTIONS! Now…you don’t need to prepare every dish you can think of but offer enough variety. No matter if one guest wants to keep it simple with macaroni or feel adventurous and try the sweet potato soufflé, at least you’ll have plenty of options to satisfy everyone’s tastes.
Tips #2 – make sure there is balance. Do NOT prepare all starches and forget about the vegetables. Your guests will be sleeping after dinner and not able to enjoy the family egg hunt.
Tip #3 – don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone. Even though you have refused asparagus as a child doesn’t mean half your guests won’t love it. Add it to the menu with a splash on lemon and olive oil.
Tip #4 – feel free to add any creative touch to awe your guests. Dye the eggs before preparing deviled eggs. Even the salads would look ADORABLE with a simple ribbon tied around the top of the mason jar. It’ll make the meal more festive.
There you have it! How to prepare the PERFECT Easter menu [the Beyond Details way]. With these tips in mind, you won’t have to worry about your guests being disappointed. Even the loner who doesn’t like sweet potatoes will be indulging in the sweet potato soufflé.
