Thank you all for another incredible year! 2017 has been a wild ride and we’re looking forward to what’s sure to be a truly great 2018.
With your help, we were able to make sizable donations to both the Houston Food Bank for Hurricane Harvey relief as well as the American Cancer Society to further breast cancer research. We cannot thank each of you enough for supporting our 100+ year old company and each of our exceptional employees. As you can imagine, a lot of work goes into running a multi-state food delivery service, and our employees are the ones who make it all possible.
We hope you have a joyous Christmas surrounded by your loved ones and we look forward to serving you for many years to come!
5 Tips For A Stress-Free Holiday Dinner
Don’t let yourself get hangry (Hungry + Angry = Hangry).
- Depending on whether or not your in-laws will be in town, you’ll likely be knocking back champagne most of the day (only kidding!), so it’s sensible to get something in your stomach to get you through.
Timing is everything.
- Cooking a big Christmas meal on time is no joke. Our recommendation? Make a “schedule.” Work backwards from your intended serving time and be realistic about how long peeling veggies etc will take.
Make your appetizers in advance.
- There’s enough to do on Christmas day just to get the meal on the table before bedtime, so don’t slow yourself down with time-sucking day-of appetizers. (Some ideas? Charcuterie, deviled eggs, veggies with dip)
Less is more.
- You don’t have to do it all, menu-wise or physically. Delegate to survive! Anyone who likes to chat, give them some peeling and they can talk to you at the same time. Give your creative friends the job of dressing the table and the person you like least the washing-up. Only joking. 🙂
- As always, clean while you cook.
- Don’t let a messy kitchen keep you away from all the fun and festivities. Keep the counters tidy and load the dish washer as you go – you’ll thank yourself later.
