Your Spring Table #togetherapart

Springtable_lookingout

This year your Spring table is no doubt going to be different than years past as we cannot host gatherings of friends and family at our tables.   We also are seeing a limited supply of certain items in the grocery store, so planning more extensive menus can be tricky.

I would suggest simplifying this year.  Make it easy on yourself, and those at home with you, by pulling together a simple menu, while still making the occasion feel extra special.  Pull out those linen napkins and a tablecloth if you have them.

If not, check out our offerings at August Table, we can get them to you!  Put flowers on the table.  If you have a yard, cut flowers or branches and put them in a vase, jar or anything fun.  Mix up your prints, plates and cutlery for a fun boho look.

Now what to serve?

You can dress a quiche up and make it very elegant with simple ingredients on hand and add a green salad and fruit salad and you’re good to go.

As with any of these recipes and ideas you can substitute ingredients for what you have on hand.  No eggs?  Buy a carton of egg beaters and use those.  No fresh veggies?  A bag of frozen broccoli or spinach makes a delicious quiche!  I’ve noticed that if the milk is not in stock at the store they likely have oat milk or almond milk.  You can use any milk substitute – just make sure you get the plain flavor.  You get the idea.  Be creative.

In addition to quiche you can throw together a board and have fun with it.

I also love the idea and look of a bagel board.  Make your Easter brunch easy.

Another idea – create a yogurt parfait station with yogurt, fruit and granola.  Other fun items to consider: muffins of various flavors, hard boiled eggs or deviled eggs.  Delicious and fun to assemble.

You can add different cereals too…

Stay safe and be well.
