New Game Time Menu: Just in Time for March Madness

Catering By Michaels

It seems like not a week goes by without something exciting happening in the sports world. Whether it’s a new season, an exciting play, or even a little drama—it’s certainly never boring!

Sports fans are starting to think about their brackets for March Madness (also known as the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Tournament), where the best of the best in college basketball (68 teams to be exact) go head to head for a shot at winning it all and becoming national champions. 

Let the insanity begin!

At Catering by Michaels, we’re just as excited (ok, if not more…) for the opportunity to relax our diets a bit in the name of the game. While the Super Bowl may be the single day of the year where Americans, on average, consume the most calories in one sitting (yes, even more than Thanksgiving!), we’re willing to bet that the series of events that make up March Madness could give it a run for its money!

[But don’t feel too bad—January is for dieting. March is for basketball and time with friends!]

Catering by Michaels Game Time Catering Menu

Alongside our many delicious catering menu options, we’re excited to announce our Game Time menu. It’s stuffed to the brim with delectable (and yes, indulgent) treats to satisfy any basketball fan. 

Score a game worthy spread while you cheer on your favorite teams. Here are some of the highlights, including many favorite game-time foods:

  • Pregame festivities: Dips, wings, and other totally snackable appetizers. You can even order a Bloody Mary bar kit. We’re just warming up!
  • Sideline salads: Though watching March Madness games offers the perfect excuse to indulge, our salads offer a great balance so you don’t have to feel too guilty at the end of the day. The Fajita Steak salad is a nice mix of healthy and tasty.
  • And the final score is…: It’s all about dessert! Options like our Bourbon Pecan Pie Bread Pudding Muffins will be enjoyed most by partygoers with a more mature palate (though there’s plenty there for the kids, as well).

Thanksgiving Dinner Favorites

Catering By Michaels

The tell-tale gobbles, pumpkins, and harvest season delights are all signs that Thanksgiving is just around the corner. This is the time of year when you can strengthen family bonds and reflect on the bounty brought to your doorstep. Though many families have secret recipes for turkey stuffing or cranberry sauce, the reality of the situation in the kitchen is that there is often not enough time to prepare a Thanksgiving feast without the stress. This year, instead of injecting stressors into your holiday festivities, focus on quality family time with family and let Catering by Michaels take care of your sumptuous Thanksgiving feast.

Annually, Catering by Michaels delivers decadent meals with all your favorites, from a whole roasted free-range turkey and turkey gravy to our cranberry, pecan and feta salad, allowing you to craft your traditional homemade dinner without slaving away for hours in the kitchen. With more than 60 traditional and not-so-traditional options, there will be no problem designing your ideal holiday feast.

Cranberry pecan and feta salad

A hefty, whole roasted free-range turkey, might be the most traditional centerpiece to your Thanksgiving table, but those wanting something a little different can try honey mustard glazed salmon or mom’s sliced brisket. If you’re catering to vegetarian family members and friends, you can also try the butternut squash lasagna, which comprises sautéed butternut squash, sage, shallots, Parmesan cheese, and nutmeg, layered with béchamel and spinach pasta. Yum!

Rosh Hashanah: Jewish New Year Traditions

Rosh Hashanah: Jewish New Year Traditions

Catering By Michaels

The Jewish New Year traditionally kicks off in Fall with Rosh Hashanah, which translates from Hebrew to “Head of the New Year.” Marking the anniversary of the creation of Adam and Eve, Rosh Hashanah comprises the first two days of a 10 day period of prayer, repentance, and charity in Judaism.

The holiday takes place at the beginning of the Hebrew month of Tishrei. Because the Hebrew calendar measures months based on the lunar cycle and years in correspondence to the solar cycle, the celebrations slide around on the secular calendar, but usually occur between September and October.

This year (2017) it will start on Wednesday, September 20 and end on Friday, September 22.

Rosh Hashanah serves as the first of the “Ten Days of Repentance”, which marks man’s first sin and his repentance. The Ten Days of Repentance begin with Rosh Hashanah and end in celebration with Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement.

Some of the customs that take place during Rosh Hashanah include:

  • Sounding the shofar, which is to alert listeners of the coming judgment
  • Eating a round challah, which symbolizes the circle of life
  • Eating apples dipped in honey to usher in a sweet New Year
  • Eating of pomegranate to bring a year full of mitzvot and good deeds

A Day in the Life of a Delivery Driver

Catering By Michaels

It’s hard to think of a person at Catering by Michaels that knows the business better than delivery driver Alexander Rufus. After all, he’s the person charged with transporting food to many catering clients, answering any customer questions on-site, and ensuring that food arrives just as good as when it left our kitchen.

Here’s a look at a day in the life of a delivery driver at Catering by Michaels.

Delivery driver

What are the main responsibilities of a Driver?

It’s pretty straightforward – our main goal is to make deliveries within a given timeframe. Sometimes, we have to manage multiple orders at once. We must be sure to be quick, courteous, and oftentimes set up food for the clients once we reach their destination.
