COLUMBUS, Ohio, April 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- With Easter fast approaching, busy moms everywhere are sure to have their hands full with egg decorating, basket stuffing and countless other holiday chores, so why not let Bob Evans take cooking the family dinner off of that list?
The Farmhouse Feast is once again available to pre-order via phone or online to make Easter gatherings deliciously simple. The feast serves up to eight and comes complete with sliced boneless ham, mashed potatoes with pan-roasted chicken gravy, green beans with ham, buttered sweet corn, Bob Evans signature coleslaw, 12 freshly baked dinner rolls, a loaf of banana nut bread and lemon supreme pie. The Farmhouse Feast allows families to enjoy a wholesome, delicious holiday feast without all the worry, time consuming preparation or heavy duty post-meal clean-up.
"The hours that go into ingredient shopping, thawing, prepping, cooking, decorating and presentation are overwhelming. And that's just before the meal," said Bob Evans Culinary Development Chef Brad Ransier. "We want families to know that we're here to help when it comes to the cooking!"Guests can order the feast at any Bob Evans Restaurant or www.bobevans.com and schedule their own pick-up date through Easter Sunday. The meals are fresh and made-to-order, but quantities are limited, so ordering early is highly recommended. The Bob Evans Farmhouse Feast serves eight people for less than $10 per person. For larger families, additional servings of ham, bread, sides and desserts may be added a la carte. Bob Evans also offers catering options for even larger gatherings like graduation parties or family reunions and carry-out meals for smaller, more intimate dinners to celebrate with the family for occasions like Mother's Day.
