Hans’ Hamburger Helper Help

I’ve committed to hosting a fancy dinner party, but I’m unable to cook the meal and can’t afford to hire a posh catering service. I need advice on the best way to disguise upscale fast-food like KFC or Boston Market as my own home cooking.  images.jpeg  ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________Dearest of Hans in Boston,  First, I would go with the Boston Market over the KFC. Fried just screams low class, when roasted chicken and mashed potatoes says, “Grandma made this, or at least she could have.”  So let’s take the chicken out of it’s container and put it on a platter of some sort, (a ceramic one would be great), on top of some lettuce. If you can get big leaves of lettuce, use them. Ok, now go check if you have any carrots in the fridge. Baby carrots will be perfect. All you have to do with these, is boil them in some slightly salted water. When those are done, you’ll just garnish the chicken with them (like little darts of sunshine, if you will).  Alright, now for the potatoes. Whether you got the mashed or baked or some other form, it doesn’t matter. All you need to do is add some parsley flakes and some olive oil. Obviously, fresh parsley would be a better option. Hoping that you got the wondrous biscuits, I suggest you put those in the oven at 350 until they’re warm and maybe a little crunchy on the outside. Use a cutting knife for the chicken, a big spoon for the potatoes, and some goblets for the Coke. You’re practically classier than Paris Hilton now and only spent 15 minutes and minimal cash. Good Luck Hans !!
