With the Holidays right around the corner and friends and family gathering from far and wide -
ARE YOU READY FOR AN IMPROMPTU GATHERING?
I love the saying
Make new friends but cherish the old - some are silver and some are gold.
I am always amazed at how fast time flies by and suddenly we realize it's been a year or more since we've seen a special friend or loved one.
They call and say they are in town and would love to get together -
Do You Panic?
or are you ready on a moments notice?
I want to always have an open door, so I keep a few basics ready for any occasion. A few staples in the freezer and I can have a fabulous dinner on the table in no time.
Everyone loves pie, so having a Marie Callender's pie on hand is always a winner. Dutch Apple is a crowd pleaser for sure and can go from freezer to table in less than an hour.
Pull out a casserole from the freezer at the same time and they can cook together.
Who doesn't love a big pan of enchiladas. Put them in the oven with the pie and they will be ready in no time.
60 minutes later - - - - - -
Fresh out of the oven and wow, the house smells fabulous.
Just slide it into a pie plate and it is company ready.
The enchiladas look amazing - -
and the salad you put together is ready - -
Your everyday tablesetting is perfect - -
and company will think you planned this all day.
Don't let precious moments with friends fly by in the blink of an eye - plan a freezer meal and cherish the memories.
