Don't you love the cold freshness and the bright colorfulness of fresh fruits and vegetables...the things that make summer eating feel healthy and good for your body? I know I do! Its kind of a precursor to all the comfort foods of fall that we look forward to but know will more than likely include a few extra pounds!! 😀 So here it is the end of August already and the Oklahoma temperatures lately have been hot after a seasonably mild summer. What better way to have some 'end of summer' activities (all activities involve food, right?) than to have some tropical and light fare for the palate?! I loved putting together this summer party spread for a drop-off delivery for a Ladies Bunco Party! Menu: Chicken Salad with Bib Lettuce on Croissants, Garden Salad and Fresh Veggie Tray with Ranch & Honey Mustard, Fresh Fruits with a Pina Colada Fruit Dip and a Strawberry Cream Fruit Dip, Domestic & Imported Cheeses and Crackers, and Roasted Red Pepper Quinoa on Mini Zuchini Boats! This reminds me of the beach and everything tropical and that is ALWAYS a good thing! 😉 Para la vida loca! Here's to the crazy life! ~ mj
This summer MJ's Catering had the awesome opportunity to be part of a fundraising project to raise money for a group of teenagers from a church in OKC traveling to Orlando, Florida, to compete in a National Fine Arts Festival. The kids sold $10 drawing chances and a random ticket was drawn to win a Catered Dinner Party for 8 valued at over $140! This week, we had the wonderful opportunity to deliver the party to the winner, Micky Kilburn! He arranged for us to bring it to his office for lunch....I am sure the whole building could smell the yummilicous Fiesta Party comprised of our popular Fajita & Salsa Bar! Here's the party menu: Fajita Steak, Fajita Chicken, Onions & Peppers, Flour & White Corn Tortillas, Latin Black Beans & Rice, Toppings: Shred Cheese, Shred Lettuce, Sour Cream, Pico de Gallo, Chipotle Avocado Ranch, Chips with Fresh Salsa and Salsa Verde, then Dessert Shooters: Fresh Strawberries & Cream and Banana Pudding! wow. I think they got more than their money's worth!!! How would YOU like to WIN this and have it delivered to YOU!!??!! 🙂 Just ask our winner if it was worth it! Para la vida loca! Here's to the crazy life! ~ mj And here's the youth that the fundraiser benefited. They did amazing as they gave everything they had performing in each category. What amazing talented kids!
We absolutely love catering and bringing smiles to our clients' faces when they smell and taste the yummy creations we come up with!! On this particular day, we were honored to cater a Luncheon for a Women's Reps Leadership Meeting...consisting of reps from all over the state of Oklahoma, at the home of the Oklahoma Women's Director for the Oklahoma District Council. This was a drop-off delivery so the food was delivered while they were meeting, and we had it set up hot and ready to serve at their designated lunch time. Menu: Chicken Fajitas and Salsa Bar and included our Spanish Rice. All our dishes are in-house recipes that we make in our catering kitchen! So next time you need a stress free lunch or dinner, or even a single dish for a gathering, we can take care of that for you and deliver it right to you!! Para la vida loca!! Here's to the crazy life! ~ mj
