Making It Easy for Mom to Enjoy Her Family Here in Sun Valley

Above, some of the dishes served

This assignment was just what I had envisioned my catering services to supply.  Mom Robin J. was here briefly with her family of 7.  She has always done it all but wanted a break from cooking so as to be able to relax and enjoy her family more.  The following is the 7 day plan she and I came up with.  It was fun for me and I think that the family really enjoyed these dishes.  I cooked them all here in my condo and Robin came over daily at about 4pm to pick them up.  I wrote out directions for her as to how to serve, etc. I also gave her a soft notebook with all of the recipes. 

Easy food serving is the name of the game!!!!
