"Nothing is better than going home to family and eating good food and relaxing."
— Irina Shayk
Once again, the winter holidays are right around the corner. If you're looking for practical ways to manage the merry-go-round of planning, errands, prepping and cooking, you're not alone! Let's face it, the season can be daunting! On the one hand, we look forward to spending time with family and friends, sharing wonderful meals and creating priceless memories. On the other hand, our time is at a premium and we run the risk of missing out because we're distracted and overworked.
Work smarter, not harder
At Caroline's, our seasonal mantra is: "Work smarter, not harder." Budget your effort into season-specific areas where it's needed and delegate wherever possible. If you're hosting an office party or a sizable gathering, then catering will probably be your best bet. But what if you're planning something casual or intimate? How can you save time, effort and money on meals without compromising excellence? The secret lies in finding good takeout. It is the sweet spot between catering and cooking yourself and it is an absolute godsend during the holidays!
Reliable take out saves time, labor and in most cases, money. It frees up your precious time. If you think about the cost of ingredients for a good meal and add your time, labor and gas, it's easy to see how takeout for small gatherings or weeknights might be a smarter, stress-free option.
