The Hospitality Pantry - Mom Heart

I love even the word hospitality.   It brings about memories of neighborhood boys reaching in the ever-filled cookie jar, meals shared with friends, college students enjoying hamburger dip and corn chips as they discuss deep theology and the basketball team, tea parties, a wedding open house, homeschool graduation, and sipping coffee with a good friend....

I'm over at Mom Heart today, for the rest of the story mosey on over... here.

The theme this month on Mom Heart has been Hospitality.   Of course, I had to share about keeping a Hospitality Pantry.  :)

PictureStolen borrowed from my daughter.  It is from a party she gave at her home, she uses the antique ironing board as a buffet.

Love that photo. You may be surprised to know that I purchased a few items for my hospitality pantry while at The Christmas Tree shop based solely on your tip. Specifically, two boxes of tea and some of those yummy little Anna's ginger cookies that go so well with tea.

This is the comment I tried to leave at Mom Heart:

Oh! What a concept to have supper at the ready. I seldom have drop-in guests so would have a way to plan ahead. I do remember my mother often having drop-in guests at suppertime. Perhaps it has gone out of favor or perhaps I've just not been the welcoming type. Oh dear!

Church Christmas bazaars are great for buying baked goodies to freeze ahead. The money goes to a good cause too so it's win win.

Muffins are quick and easy to make ahead and freeze.
