I love to throw a party…. I love it all… the planning… the prep… the cooking… the serving… the party! It’s taken a long time to learn just how much to make for a crowd…. I never want to run out of something… not that it’s a bad thing really… it just means everyone really liked what I served…. but it’s just me…. I want to have enough for everyone…. and I still to this day… make too much…. I have gotten better over the years…. I really don’t want to waste food, time and money… and I definitely don’t want to be eating leftovers for a week.
I came across a food purchasing guide years ago from Pillsbury… some things I disagreed with (so obviously I left those out) but some things I found especially helpful… with the spring celebration season just beginning …. I thought I would share them with you.
I will publish a number of buying guides for my Tips of the Day in the coming days….
I hope you find them helpful.
