The guys smoked ribs.
That was when I began keeping a hospitality and entertaining notebook.
I use a simple 3-ring notebook.
Sometimes I get really fancy and use pictures and stickers like a scrapbook page...
Other times I jot the info down on a piece of notebook paper...
Some of the information I include in my notebook:
- What was the occasion?
- Who did I invite?
- Who attended?
- What was on the menu?
- How did I decorate?
- What dishes/glasses did I use?
- Any special serving pieces I used.
- Where and how I served the food?
- Where we ate (outside or in the house)?
- How much ice we used?
- Any problems or issues?
- Did something go over really well?
In my notebook I also like to include pictures of special recipes I've made...
In the front pocket I keep ideas for parties that I want to have...
|I'm going to host this party when my tomatoes come in this year!|
I like to keep my information in a notebook but you can keep it in a folder on your computer if you
want. The important thing is to just write it down.
