Good evening! Man this weekend went by way too fast, and it's officially one week until I host Easter here at the Luonch Ranch. If anyone else out there has an upcoming dinner, below is how I like the two weeks before any event to play out.
Two weeks ahead:
Design any stationary that may be needed during the dinner party
One week ahead:
Create a schedule (I like to make a google doc so I always have access)
Make my shopping list, include all different necessary shops
Pick up any speciality shop items that won't spoil
Pick out and label serving pieces with post-it's so that it's easy for someone to help you with setup
Color Easter Eggs
Pick up lamb
Pick up clams as late in the day as possible
Prep as much as possible!
Make salad dressing, chutney & gremolata
Set the table
Prep lamb in the morning so the herb rub can really soak in
Cook everything and take note of how smoothly everything will run since you prepped so much!
Arrange and dress salad immediately before serving
I don't want to give away our full menu, but here's a little taste. I'm really looking forward to spending the day with my family, especially Lorenzo, we might even try to get a little ice skating time in!
