Turning a buffet crowd onto a sit down meal


Not About Food 6

Turning a buffet crowd onto a sit down meal

eLizard | Apr 6, 2007 09:01 AM

I'm hosting Easter for the first time this year. Usually the crowd just bellies up to the counter full of food, slaps some ham and taters onto a plate and hunches over it in some armchair in the corner near a t.v.

I'd like to transition that into a sit-down meal. I'd like to place all the food on the set table for serving and ask everyone to sit down. the only catch being is that the kids will be sitting elsewhere and will have to have their plates filled first. i don't want that exersize to turn into a buffet free for all if we serve from the kitchen. my thought is to get everyone around the table and serve the kiddies, sending them on their way to their table, and then commencing with the grown-ups. does that make sense?
