Winter Doldrums

While the weather in the North East has been mild by any standards, it is still February. Studies tell us that the yearning for spring looms strong from now till 4/1! The solution? Throw a Doldrums Soiree! Just catered such an event Saturday. It was fun, festive and got the results needed.

The menu supported the theme of the evening: laugh, drink and celebrate!

After a few appetizers...

Chinese-Food-Takeout Station: Grab a pair of chopsticks and fill your takeout container to your heart's content:

  1. Chicken and Broccoli
  2. 5-Ingredient Fried Rice
  3. Chinese Style Green Beans
  4. Avocado Egg Rolls w/Sweet and Sour Dipping Sauce
  5. Fortune Cookies (of course!)  

Then, move down the table and enjoy the Make-Your-Own-Taco Station:

  1. Choose soft or hard tacos (or both)
  2. Grilled Mahi-Mahi
  3. Carne Asada w/Skirt Steak
  4. And, every possible topping anyone might want on a fish or beef taco. 

Dessert: Fried ice cream, anyone?

Next time you throw a party for whatever reason, think outside the box and go for the unexpected. There are endless station possibilities for any palet and your guests will have fun!
