I’m a firm believer that you don’t have to have guests over to get out your best china. And you don’t have to be catering to a crowd to bring out the serving dishes. Any meal can be made more special when you serve it on your favourite platter, that never sees the light of day. So what if it takes a few more minutes to clean up afterwards?
I like the idea of preparing a meal “family style”, where all of the food is on the table. If you have room, everyone can serve themselves, and dig back in when they are finished. This morning we we took the luxurious route, and plated up our oatmeal toppings (dark chocolate included), and it felt like room service. I highly recommended it.
