I am a planner. That being said- I like to prepare myself for a guest situation by listing in menu form the items I would like to make for my company. I then like to make sure I have all ingredients available to prepare my special selection by listing what each item is going to need to be prepared. If some of those items are not already in my fridge, freezer, or pantry- then there’s another list beside the menu list titled: “Need to Buy” items. Today’s food list Friday is associated with my guest dinner plans that will take place sometime during this three day weekend. I am planning on making available a “Shrimp Selection and Snack Buffet” to enjoy until there are full stomachs all around.
Here’s the list of what my menu will include this weekend- but I won’t bore you with what is needed make each. Some are by scratch and some are just bought “as is”. If you’d like to share your ‘make by scratch’ recipes for any of these items- I’d LOVE to see you post a link to one that you like or to one you’ve come up with! Happy Memorial Day Weekend!
