Tips On Menu For Grandparents Day
- When you are looking to put together a great menu for a grandparent's day party, it is absolutely okay if there are tons and tons of food served. However, there should be a compromise with variety. Focus more on the quality and quantity of the food served and less on the number of items you wish to serve. It's really as simple as this.
- Standard operating procedures or protocols that dominate party menus for a grandparent's day celebration dictate that it would be sufficient to serve two starters, a main course and a dessert, or maybe two. In any case, if you think that you can serve a lot more than this, you can feel free to do so, but under no circumstance should you make compromises with the quality of the food served.
- As far as serving non-vegetarian dishes and vegetarian dishes go, it is a must for you to make a very important decision – To serve or not serve non-vegetarian dishes? The answer to this question is pretty simple. You can serve non-vegetarian food if your grandparents are allowed to eat and do relish non-vegetarian treats. However, if your grandparents are not allowed to eat non-vegetarian dishes or are not particularly fond of the same, exclude 'carnivorous' items from the menu. Here, it is important to remember that the food served at the party is less about you and the guests and more about your grandparents.
- With desserts, it is an absolute must to be absolutely careful. You don't want to serve two or three desserts when your grandparents are not even allowed to eat one. Most grandparents refrain from eating sweet dishes for reasons that can be best described as medical. In this case, two options will make sense. You either don't serve dessert at all, or serve just one dessert. On a special day like grandparents day, you after all don't want your loving grandparents yearning for something they are just not allowed to eat.
- The spice factor! As a rule of a thumb, when it comes to food and grandparents, the less spice and heat the better. This, however, doesn't mean that each and every dish you serve is blander than the other. Moderately spiced food is really your safest bet. As far as the food goes, everything you do should revolve around your grandparents, for they are the last people you want complaining about the food. Moreover, when the food served at the party is loved most by your grandparents, it will only help them feel that much more special and loved!
- There is nothing really healthy about colas and you don't really want to be serving at alcohol at a grandparent's day party. Thus, the only other and healthiest option at your disposal is the option of serving fruit juices. With fruit juices you have a winner all the way, thus making it the safest option ever. For health benefits, try serving the juices without sugar. If there are kids or youngsters at the party, don't punish them too much, serve them fruit juices with sugar.
Now that you are done with the tips on a menu for grandparent's day party, you can go ahead and put together a feast with benefits.
