What Simone’s Lovin’


It is no secret that I love entertaining… Greeting friends and family in our home for unique experiences such as my recent ′Breakfast Soup Tasting Party′, for extended family events like the Bunco evening for 24, or simply to sit, sip tea and chat. But I′ve just rediscovered why I use to love entertaining Friday, Saturday and Sunday of the same weekend.

  1. The house only needs to be cleaned once, with minor touch-ups between groups.
  2. The menu can be planned to eliminate a lot of leftovers – a raw veggie platter with unique dips on Friday, becomes a stir-fried veggie side dish on Saturday or a marinated veggie salad on Sunday. A prime rib roast on Friday, makes great beef dip sandwiches for Saturday and the bones can be added to a beef broth to enhance its flavour for a hearty soup meal for Sunday brunch.
  3. Since fewer and fewer people are eating desserts – making one cheesecake, or one triple chocolate pudding will usually serve all guests for the entire weekend.
  4. Unless there′s a major spill, the table décor does not have to be changed – only added to. Start with a tablecloth on the first day, add a table runner to the centre of the table for the second event, and finish off with a tablecloth, runner and placemats on the third. Then, into the wash everything goes.
  5. Finally, over one weekend, leftover wine is not destined for a marinade, and leftover pop does not lose its fizz.
