After request upon request to cater, Denise and I have given in several times in the last few months. It has been fun and a learning experience on what it takes to be a true caterer. As of now, we still don’t think catering, in the technical sense of the word, is for us. HOWEVER, providing a home-cooked, delicious spread at a fair cost for friends is definitely something we enjoy!
This past Saturday, we provided a brunch for about 20 people hosting a baby shower. It was so much fun! Melissa knew a lot of the guests which made it extra special to see friends and the appreciation for the food was enough to lift our spirits through the week.
We worked with the ‘to be Mom’s’ sister on the menu which needed to include enough vegetarian items to suit the guest list. Here is what we ended up with:
- Frittata with mushrooms, leeks and fontina
- Frittata with sausage and cheddar
- Shrimp grits with toast points
- Baked French toast
- Greek yogurt, mixed berries and granola
- Caprese salad
- Prosciutto cups with spinach and ricotta
- Mimosas, OJ, and iced tea
Do you have a book club, Bible study, regular friend get together that you don’t want to cook for…let us know if we can help!
