Ever since I was a little girl, my family always set up a beautiful spread for guests while my mom cooked Easter dinner. We would go to church, pick up my grandmother from home and set a table with appetizers and things to drink while my mom made her famous asopao de camarones. It’s a tradition that I’ve kept even when it was just my son and I at home alone as a homage to my family back east, who I love and miss dearly. May the traditions live on!
This weekend, my fiancé and I went to Kohl’s to pick out a few servers for our Easter spread. We always set up the table with delicious appetizers to keep us fed while we cook. Well, while he cooks. He makes a phenomenal asopao de camarones, similar to my mother’s recipe. While things are going on in the kitchen, we like to play music and snack on olives, cheese and dips. We got this really cool Food Network bamboo serving tray for some of our favorite mediterranean snacks. We decided to go with items that can be used year round for a variety of occasions.
