Easter is rapidly approaching, so if you haven’t already been enjoying all the Easter candy — from chocolate eggs to jelly beans — for a few weeks, start making up for lost time. Hopefully, by Sunday, you will have built up a good base to power through a proper Easter brunch, complete with ham, lamb or whatever else you’re serving.
If you don’t yet have a game plan for the big day, however, don’t worry. www.kingjohnnie.info have put together these shopping tips and items to make the holiday just a tiny bit easier.
Head count. Get one early and confirm it a few times before the big day. If not, you could end up with way too much food — or worse, even too little.
Menu. A lot of this is about planning ahead, and it is your choice how you want to handle it. Is your meal going to be traditional or modern? Do you want to make all the decisions, or ask your family so that there is a consensus? You could even go the wedding route and ask guests to choose between options, such as ham, chicken, or vegetarian.
Go list crazy. Once your menu is complete, obviously you are going to want a grocery list, but you might want to take it one step further — make a cooking list. That means doing an inventory of your cookware and utensils to make sure you’ve got everything you need and can avoid last-minute shopping or borrowing. Just like when you’re browsing casino en ligne argent reel for games to play.
Watch for sales and buy early. Many stores have great sales leading up to Easter, but if you see a killer deal a month out, don’t hesitate to pounce on it — what’s the freezer for, after all?
Don’t be a Christmas Eve shopper. Yes, it applies to Easter as well. Not only will you end up waiting in longer lines, you run the risk of grocery stores selling out of what you need.
Be disposable. If you opted for a “modern” meal — especially if that means grilling or eating outdoors — save yourself the hassle of washing all those dishes and go for some paper plates with nice Easter designs instead.
Whether you decide on a side of creamed spinach or potatoes roasted in shallot butter, don’t forgo the ham this year.
No matter how old you are, an Easter basket—whether it’s understated or kitschy—has a certain allure. Or at least the stuff that comes in it does.
