During the holidays, I love to stuff myself with a ton of food and celebrate parties with my closest friends before Thanksgiving and Christmas hit when we’ll be dedicating our time to family. In preparation for a ladies’ night with my gal pal Rachel and a few of our other friends, Hickory Farms was able to cover everything to have a great holiday meal for a large group of people. We had the Finest Deluxe Dried Tray for some dried fruit snack and the Fireside Gift Box, which included a bottle of delicious Lucinda and Millie Chardonnay along with some sausages and 3 different types of cheese that we sliced up for snacking. For a holiday meat, we opted to get the Honeygold Spiral Sliced Ham with Simply Condiment selection for flavoring a variety of items. The sliced ham took about 2.5 – 3 hours to bake and it was already wrapped in an insulating wrap to ensure that the meat cooks nice and moist. The condiments were gluten-free and came in 3 flavors, which were spicy brown mustard, smoky onion mustard, and my favorite, hot pepper bacon jam. For dessert, we had some Chocolate Caramel Apples that was a big hit for the party and paired so well with the chardonnay.
Making a meal from scratch is great, but sometimes not having to do it makes things so much easier. That way you can just focus on enjoying: yourself, your company, and food. The overall experience was great with Hickory Farms as all of our items were delivered and packaged safely. Hickory Farms made it a breeze to prepare a holiday meal, requiring minimal work on our part to make the food. In addition, upon finishing our meal the clean up was much easier than a home cook meal would have been.
