Let’s celebrate this Thanksgiving Day with warm smiles in our thoughts & hearts. Strive to be the happiest person on earth. Let’s give thanks for all our blessings, both in the personal & business world.  Continental Catering wishes our WONDERFUL CUSTOMERS, AMAZING VENDORS & VENUES continued blessings  in all your endeavors.

From our kitchen to yours!


4 cups     Leftover Stuffing
2 cups     Leftover Mashed Potatoes
2 lg eggs
1 cup      Chicken Broth

Preheat the waffle baker and grease it with cooking spray.
In a large bowl, stir together the leftover stuffing and eggs. Add 1/4 cup of chicken broth and mix until well combined. Continue adding chicken broth as needed until the mixture is well-moistened.
Scoop half of the stuffing mixture into the prepared waffle baker, spreading it evenly. (The stuffing will not spread or expand like regular waffle batter as it bakes, so it’s important to arrange it in an even, thin layer.) Close the lid and let the waffle bake until golden brown and the egg is cooked throughout.
Transfer the waffle to a serving plate then repeat the filling and baking process with the remaining stuffing. Serve the waffles with leftover mashed potatoes, warm leftover gravy & cranberry

Mood Board Monday: Green-Yellow Wedding

July 25, 2016

Mood Board Monday

Inspiration: For this yellow-green summer inspired mood board was the integration of natural vegetables as decor, bright hanging pops of color mixed in with elegant greenery giving this wedding a farm to table feel. The bride with a yellow dip dyed dress holding a goat exemplifies the outdoor scenery without feeling too hokey. We love the accents of wood everywhere as well as the mini iron skillets used for food labeling. How fun!

FYI: Don’t forget to check out our Pinterest page! There’s much more where this came from…

Good Morning to all of you up an at-em today! As you may know, today is National Donut Day and we are celebrating like any other human being would. Some employees are double fisting them while others are drooling over the box feeling indecisive. Although we enjoy the classics, Nomad Donuts posh pallet of unique flavors was our go to on such an important Friday of the year.National Donut DayIMG_3176 IMG_3178

IMG_3186Three dozen donuts later, our hearts and stomachs are filled with sugary goodness and we’re ready to begin our workday. Some of our favorites were the basics of course, vanilla, chocolate and maple but we couldn’t help ourselves when it came to the fancy flavors. We tried the Meyer Lemon, Lemon Poppy Seed, Chocolate Banana Peanut Butter, Carrot Chocolate Chip, Strawberry with Chocolate Hazelnut, Coffee Maple Vanilla, Mango Chili Cilantro, Peach Jam Blackberry Lime, Pineapple Cake, Strawberry Kiwi, Chocolate Custard Brown Butter and the Charred Blueberry Cream Cheese. What a mouthful, if we do say so ourselves! So don’t spend your Friday wishing you had one of these babies in your belly because come Saturday you’ll realize you missed out on one of the most important holidays of the year! Nom Nom Nom.

National Wine Day

May 25, 2016

ContinentalCateringWine6 ContinentalCateringWine2 ContinentalCateringWine3 ContinentalCateringWine5 Did you know that today is National Wine Day? Well because the owner of Continental is crazy about wine, it would be ridiculous of us to not post something about this wondrous day! The Girls in the Vineyard is a wine we carry and serve to our customers. The reason we chose this wine is because it represents Continental Catering as a women owned business. Although “the girls” in the name are a representation of the vines the grapes are grown from in the vineyard, the mission of this company is to bring the wines from the vines to you without any fuss. We at Continental feel the same about the quality of food and service we bring to the table. We want to give you the best service possible while making it easy peasy lemon squeezy for you. So here’s your excuse to enjoy that extra glass (or 2) of wine tonight. Happy National Wine Day. Cheers!
