Year after year, Ohioan’s anticipate the beginning of Fall and the slightly cool evening temperatures that accompany. Windows begin to open in the late afternoons, and the idea of “heating up the kitchen again” seems like a delicious idea.
As the trees begin changing color, The “Friday Night Lights” shine and the sights of combines harvesting grain crops appear, cooler temperatures do motivate us to begin thinking “holidays” and entertaining our friends.
Here’s a few ideas on how to do that and some delicious recipes to pull it all together:
Put it all out there……sure, serving and clearing three courses looks impressive but it also pulls you away from your guests, and they have accepted your invitation this evening to spend time with YOU!
Have a couple noshes on the dining table before guests even sit. Think Charcuterie, delicious meats, cheeses, pickled vegetables and some raisin walnut bread with sweet butter. The remainder of the dinner can be placed out as soon guests take there seats.
Here’s a couple of suggestions of delicious food to look forward to.Butternut Squash Bouchons
Spicy Chicken Meatballs with Savoy Cabbage and Apples
Pumpkin Pie – of course!!
No doubt having family at home is ideal, but for those looking to host a large group up to 160 people, please contact us to reserve your big day.
We hope you have a wonderful rest of your summer as we start to see the sun go down earlier in the fall. Autumn is such a wonderful time in Ohio and look forward to more seasonal ideas to prepare around your home.
