Hostess with the Mostest


The weekend.Time to relax and see friends.
Catch up over a civilized meal, a glass of wine.

But how do you tend lovingly to that beef tenderloin and your children at the same time?

Trish Magwood, Savvy Mom’s expert foodie from dish, says to start by readjusting your expectations and those of your guests. Pick a menu with high impact and low time commitment like the main course recipes Trish has shared with us. (Stop upping the ante with your gourmet club. Last month they did crown roast and this month you want to try your hand at stuffing quails?)

If you want to have a good visit, make a pact with your friends to keep things simple. (Like take them up on the offer to bring something.)

The number one key to easy entertaining is being organized. You need a hook or a theme, a menu, a list and a planned time for shopping. (Picking up en route home is a bad idea; it always takes longer than you think.)
