Thanks to HoneyBaked Ham for sponsoring this post and feeding my family a yummy Easter Dinner.
Ok, so I will be the first to tell you that I have Pinterest boards stocked with holiday meal ideas that I have good intentions of making. I will also tell you with three kids 7 and under it’s never going to happen. Unless I don’t want this thing called sleep.
My first secret to holiday meals? HoneyBaked Ham. Not even kidding. Sure, I still make a few things from scratch, but to be honest, since it’s just us, I really like to be able to focus on our family. HoneyBaked Ham allows me to do that.
Next tip? Prep before hand. Don’t wait until the day of to get everything cooking. It doesn’t take a super long time but it’s nice to not have to worry about timing different dishes when you’re spending time with your family dying Easter Eggs or eating the ears off chocolate bunnies when they aren’t looking. (Not that I’ve ever done that.)
Once you’re done baking you have two options. Option A or Option B. Option A is to put everything in pretty serving dishes if you’re having guests other than your immediate family for dinner. Simply cover with Saran Wrap or foil and stick in the frig.
Or you can go with Option B. Which is genius for two reasons. Option B is to put everything into your trust glass Snapware containers. First off, they are glass, so they are easy to reheat, and once you put the lids on? They are stackable. So not only does it make putting them away easy, but since all of your food is already in their “leftover” containers, cleanup after dinner is crazy easy, assuming there is any food left, which in our house, there usually is.
Get fun plates for the kids, and use themed paper plates and napkins for the adults. Again, super easy cleanup. All the paper goes in the compost, the food scraps go to the chickens (happy chickens) and you get to enjoy the rest of your holiday without a lot of headache or chaos.
