I don’t mind cooking for the most part. There are plenty of times I have been too lazy (or busy) to whip up a wholesome meal. Instead I turn to pasta or something equally as easy.
I know when we move and I am going to be itching to host dinner parties and informal gatherings. I have been anxious to play host for many years.
I have to admit that I am not a gourmet chef. I also don’t know how to cook for large crowds. I’m only used to cooking for four people – me, my husband and our two children. I wish my mother in law was still alive. She cooked for her, my father in law and six children. Even when she was living by herself (my father in law passed away) after all the children have “flown the coop” she still continued to cook for a small army. She would always call us up and tell us to come and get the foods she made (she lived across the street). I certainly didn’t mind.
If you are planning on a special event (such as the kick off to football season) or hosting a formal dinner and need help coming up with the menu and doing all the cooking, let the new Zoës Kitchen Party Packs help you out.
If you are not familiar with Zoës Kitchen, its a fast-casual Mediterranean-inspired restaurant, now offers these simple and delicious, catering options allowing for less time spent in the kitchen, and more time spent with family and loved ones.
Planning and hosting a party can be stressful. With Zoës Kitchen to help you out you can spend more time enjoying your company and less time stressing over the meal.
Here are a few examples of packages you can get from Zoës Kitchen.
Guilt-Free Girls Night – Nothing says girl’s night like food, drinks, Rom-Com movies and makeovers. This weekend, grab your best friends and catch up, while munching on an assortment of lean turkey pitas, chicken and slaw pitas and Mediterranean tuna pitas. You can even top off the festivities with low-cal margaritas made with Zoës Kitchen’s limeade. You’ll be dubbed “hostess with the mostess” by the girls in no time.
Game Day Goodies – Football season is only a punt away and it’s time to get ready to tackle game day hunger. Zoës Kitchen has the perfect line-up with a variety of chicken and steak kabobs or roll-ups, grilled potato salad, marinated slaw and hummus and pimento cheese Fresh Take Tubs. This year, make every Sunday feel like Super Bowl Sunday.
Shower Sensations – Planning a surprise bridal or baby shower? The shower package is simple and sweet with delicate, delicious finger foods. Guests will savor in Greek salad, fresh fruits, a petite pita tray and hummus with cucumbers and pita bread. The mom-to-be or bride-to-be will remember this special moment for years to come.
Kid’s Party Pack – Parents can feed hungry tummies during birthdays, play dates and after-school without even lifting a finger. Zoës Kitchen caters to kids – and parents – with this yummy, yet healthy party pack. Featuring an assortment of wholesome chicken salad, turkey and cheese sandwiches, fresh fruit and mini chocolate chip cookies, little ones will love the tasty food while parents enjoy the break from the kitchen.
I love the Guilt-Free Girls Night menu. That sounds yummy!
To celebrate the new Zoës Kitchen Party Packs I am able to give away a $50 gift card to Zoës Kitchen. The winner can use it to try out one of the Party Packs first-hand. If there is not a Zoës Kitchen near you, the winner will then receive a $50 gift card to a local grocery store so that they can pick up the ingredients needed to make their own Party Pack. Thank you Zoës Kitchen!
This giveaway is open to US residents only and will end on September 14, 2103 at 11:59 PM (EST). The winner will be chosen at random using a random number generator from all eligible entries. The winner will be notified via e-mail and will have three days to reply or a new winner will be chosen in their place.
