Whether you’re celebrating Hanukkah, New Year’s or both, let’s face it, holidays are best spent with friends and family, not slaving away in the kitchen. That’s why so many Newton area families make Rosenfeld’s a part of their holiday traditions. Here are a few of our favorite tips from our customers:
- Have a plan. If you’re hosting for the holidays, start your planning now to ensure that you’ll be able to enjoy your guests when they arrive instead of rushing around to grab that one thing you forgot. Take some time to plan out your cleaning, your shopping list, and even some activities to keep your guests entertained.
- Having house guests, whether it’s for a weekend or a week, can stress even the closest of relationships. Lighten the mood by getting out and about! Go ice skating, see a movie or a show, go shopping or grab a bite out – anything to switch up the scenery.
- Get over the idea that you need to make absolutely everything from scratch. Your guests would much rather spend time with you than your latest gourmet creation. Baked goods are always an easy way to round out your menu. Rosenfeld’s offers a delicious array of traditional, fresh pastries that’ll make the perfect end to a meal or a delicious snack any time of day and our freshly baked Challah rolls are great with dinner or as an alternative to traditional sandwich breads.
- If you’re going to cook, try to find simple recipes that don’t require too much of your attention. This Overnight French Toast is not only easy, it’s a great way to make use of your leftover Challah bread from dinner.
Entertaining should be fun, not a chore! We hope these tips help you find a little more time to spend with your guests this holiday season and always know that if you need a helping hand, from breakfast to dinner to midnight snack, Rosenfeld’s has got you covered!
