Greeting Dinner Guests and Baked Teriyaki Chicken Tenders
When the doorbell rings, and hopefully I’m ready (I hate it when company comes and I’m still in the bedroom getting dressed!), I love to greet our guests at the front door. Sometimes though, I’m running behind. :( Do you ever run behind when people are coming over for dinner, and you keep looking at the clock? Story of my life! Here are some tips that can help you get the party started, when you’re feeling a few steps behind:
1. Ask the kids to greet the guests at the front door and invite them in. That will give you a few more minutes to get ready. 2. Greet your guests and invite them into your kitchen. Give them a small job to do. 3. Bring the guests into your kitchen, offer them a drink and a stool, and get the conversation going while they watch you finish up your duties. 4. Usher your guests into the back yard, with a drink, and tell them to feel free to relax or wander around the garden area.
For sure you don’t want to leave your guests standing at the front door. And for sure you don’t want to hide out in the kitchen while they are waiting for the “party” to get stared. One easy recipe that I want to share with you, I made for my family a few weeks ago. It was really yummy, and super duper easy. It’s a recipe you can make up ahead of time and pop in the oven as your guests are mingling over appetizers and drinks! Enjoy.
Do you prefer to have everything done ahead of time, or you don’t mind cooking and talking with your guests at the same time?
