So many people are hesitant to entertain in their homes, for one reason or another. I will admit that I’m not as eager to entertain as I should be, although I never regret taking the opportunity. We entertained all of my husband’s immediate family (including our precious baby niece!) over the weekend. I am so thankful that although our home is not large, there was plenty of room to seat everyone around the kitchen table!
We had a light meal in the early evening, so I kept the menu and table setting simple. Here’s what I served:
- Simply Delicious Chicken & Rice Soup (I used egg noodles instead of rice)
- Broccoli & Carrots with Ranch
- French Bread with homemade freezer jam
- Pumpkin Crunch Cake
I served the soup in these darling pumpkin bowls. Everyone loves eating out of a cute bowl! 🙂 One of the best things about this menu is that it can all be made ahead of time. I love having everything cleaned up and put away when my company arrives, so I’m able to focus on my guests.
Do you have a simple, go-to entertaining menu? Tell me about it in the comments!
