As Eating Well magazine reports, “the key to a great party is a relaxed host.” And while the magazine’s focus is on teaching you how to cook for your own guests, there are a lot of would-be holiday hosts who will be stressed out by cooking. Many will be unhappy even if they start the prep work days in advance…most people just don’t have the time to slave over a stove anymore.
The pressure of trying to make amazing food can be immense. The food is, after all, a big part of what your guests will be talking about. It's a powerful memory builder. Yet many working professionals struggle to cook nightly meals. If you normally reach for a takeout menu instead of a skillet, then you might not even have the skills to pull off a big party menu.
Great parties can’t come at the expense of your own sanity. Guests want to remember your warm, loving greetings and the smile on your face too. But if you don’t enjoy cooking, your smiles will be forced. Your company will be able to tell you’re stressed out, even if you try to hide it. Dropping a conversation to run to the stove in a panic when something starts to smoke is an easy way to ensure everyone goes home early.
That's where we come in. BBQ catering from Goode Company may be the perfect way to keep the genuine smile on your face this holiday season.
BBQ catering is also one of the hottest trends sweeping the nation. Once, guests might have arched an eyebrow at finding brisket and baked potatoes on their plate, but not any longer. Now they’ll enthusiastically dig in with gusto, especially in Texas.
Of course, if you want something more traditional, we can provide it. Just order our mesquite-smoked turkey breasts, one of our juicy holiday hams, or both. Add sides like our homemade potato salad and our made-from-scratch jalapeno cheese bread. Both are made fresh that day, giving your guests something amazing to sink their teeth into. Don’t forget the pie! Our Brazos Bottom pecan pie offers the perfect ending to any holiday meal.
We can also help you turn your holiday party into a Tex-Mex fiesta with our fajitas or give your guests an upscale flair with grilled seafood and shrimp cocktails. We offer a full range of Texas tastes, which means you don’t have to think inside the BBQ box if you don’t want to.
No matter what you order, we’ll deliver it right to your doorstep, if you wish, or stick around to offer a full service meal. You’ll really “wow” your guests when they see they’re about to receive meat that’s being served up by a professional block man. Remember, slicing the meat is an art form if you want to preserve every last bite of flavor. You might want to take advantage of this service just to make your party extra memorable.
You see, we love to cook. It’s our family tradition and the backbone of our business. We never got into the habit of moving fast, because we’ve learned just how delicious “slow” can be. We use tried-and-true techniques that will remind your guests of grandma’s best dishes, assuming she was a terrify cook.
While you’re contemplating your food order, you might even search for a venue outside of your home. That way you won’t have to clean up before your guests arrive and you won’t have to clean up after they depart. You’ll always know there is plenty of seating. This is a great idea if you’re going to have a huge crowd instead of an intimate family gathering. Your guests may be more comfortable too. We can certainly help you find the perfect venue if you’d like. Decorate it with holiday lighting and seasonal plants and you’ll be well on your way towards creating the best party you’ve ever had.
Check out our catering menu so you can start examining every mouth-watering possibility. Then, give us a call. The sooner you call, the sooner we can help you start creating the holiday party you’ve been dreaming of.
Then you can look forward to actually enjoying your own celebration for a change.
