Easter is a little over a week away. If you haven’t started planning your meal then here are some way’s I plan to save on this year’s Easter feast. Now, if you know me personally, then you know I like to pull pranks and have fun. I told my husband since Easter falls on April 1, April Fool’s Day, we could invite the family over, boil an onion to make the house smell like a meal is cooking. After about an hour I would say April Fool’s sorry, no dinner. I thought that was hilarious, but my husband won’t let me do it. He is a killjoy sometimes. Anyway here goes my saving tips.
- Potluck. This year we are doing a potluck. Since dinner is at my house, I will provide the meat’s and the rest of the family can show their best culinary skills and bring their best dish.
- Keep it simple. On Easters past, when we had to feed the entire family the entire dinner, we kept it super simple. One year, we did baked chicken, green beans, creamed potatoes, rolls, tea and store-bought dessert. This year it is still pretty simple. My house is doing roasts, with carrots and potatoes. The rest is up to the rest of the family. I can pop those roasts in the crock pot overnight and boom. No muss no fuss.
- Scrap the paper. Now I love disposable plates, but it is a thump of us so I would need lots of paper plates. For the adults, we will use real dishes. For the person who has the most children, they will bring paper plates for all the children to eat off of. I am so glad my children are adults because I used to be that person with the most children.
- Plan. Hey, if you haven’t even begun to plan, you better hurry. Find out what’s on sale and grab your coupons and head to the store. Having a plan in place saves you tons of money,
Ok, these are my tips, Happy Easter yall, April Fool lol. Just kidding, I really want yall to have a Happy Easter!
