Easter Dinner Made Simple

Posted on Thu, Mar 19, 2015 @ 01:41 PM

Finally the weather seems to be breaking and the air is starting to warm with the promise of springtime. With the budding trees and crocus plants popping, we are reminded that Easter is fast approaching. Planning the traditional Easter feast for many families is the focus this time of year.   For many, it starts with Good Friday and culminates in the celebration of Easter Sunday.  There are many fun traditions that are shared, like the dying of Easter eggs, visits from the Easter bunny and Easter egg hunts.  But how do these tie into the Christian belief that Christ was crucified and resurrected?

Mardi Gras Party Catering Done Right!

Posted on Wed, Feb 11, 2015 @ 11:47 AM

This year we’re declaring Mardi Gras in New Jersey!  Mardi Gras doesn’t have to be for those who live in or visit New Orleans. Many people celebrate Fat Tuesday with parties and celebrations all over the country. What a lot of people who celebrate don’t know is that Mardi Gras always begins on the day before Ash Wednesday, or the first day of Lent.  During the period of Lent many Christians exclude meat from their diets either completely or on Fridays.  They also give up a favorite food or habit (even sometimes drink) during the Lenten period. So, Fat Tuesday is an excuse to party before Lent and then the abstinence begins.  But not matter what, no people are more famous for Mardi Gras celebrations than the residents of New Orleans, Louisiana.
