Target provided me with a gift card.
This past weekend we went on yet another Target shopping spree. It seems I live in that store some days. I always go in with a small, precise list and come out with arm fulls of things I didn’t know I wanted or needed till I got there. Of course that might have a little something to do with my lack of self-control (but I prefer to blame Target for having awesome stuff).
Anyways, our Target opened up a new and improved grocery section last year and I’ve slowly been checking out the fresh produce, meats and bakery items they have to offer. It’s not a huge selection but I’ve always found what is available is always fresh.
So on my most recent shopping tripped I was asked to hunt down some items for our family’s Easter dinner. We tend to keep this pretty traditional with ham, mashed potatoes, macaroni & cheese, veggies and of course dessert. The first thing I went searching for was the main course, a ham. Target’s Archer Farms brand makes a fantastic Spiral Sliced Honey Ham and there was a huge fridge full of them. They’re great (for me) because it means I don’t have to do a hack job on the ham, they’re already cook, sliced and just need to be heated for the big dinner.
I also got inspired by a few of the premade appetizer products. Archer Farms has a whole selection of dips that are easy to plate and pair with chips or crackers. There’s even bags of ready-to-bake chicken bruschetta.
In the Easter aisle there are all sorts of goodies from pre-filled eggs for the Easter egg hunt to unique candies to fill up Easter baskets. My favorite section is all the stuff for holiday baking. Target has some really kits for making Easter themed desserts.
I even found the most adorable chocolate flower pot cupcake kit.
It comes with everything you need to make these tiny cupcakes in silicone flower pots. They’re perfect for Spring celebrations and an Easter dessert table. You could decorate the top with Robin Eggs and use green shredded coconut to make a nest on the pot. And they can be used over and over again.
