Well, yesterday, they wanted to recreate a steak house dinner they had as breakfast. So, I worked up a menu.
To my surprise, when I got there; they were all dressed PJ's and robes, slippers; they had rented Breakfast at Tiffany's, and had TV tables set up. They are mostly in the 70's, but so young at heart. It is just health issues that prevents them for standing/cooking/cleaning. etc.
So ... if you want to have a fun party to entertain with; this is a fun idea. Order your favorite movies; serve breakfast food, wear PJ's, play your favorite card or board game and just relax.
Dinner parties don't have to be EXPENSIVE, OR FANCY.
The menu was:
Bloody Mary's (from scratch) with a shrimp skewer, and a celery skewer
Eggs baked in tomatoes with a green hollandaise sauce over baby greens
Grilled skirt steak
Steakhouse pan fried potatoes (almost a mash), with mushrooms, mixed peppers, and onions
Grilled peaches, chilled and served with mascarpone and honey
Dessert wine and a Mexican coffee
Small cheese danish bites as a dessert
Anyways, it was cheap for 8 people and just something fun. Try a breakfast party for dinner sometime.
I already got an email this am; and they loved it. They played cards till 10pm, late for them, lol. But want to do it again. Kudos for them, for having some fun, and enjoying life.
To walk in to a house last night with 8 70 yr olds dressed in jammies was just so funny. And they all brought their own TV tables. It was crazy. But, this is them.
I guess that is the whole point of this thread. Try something different for dinner. Breakfast, or even a soup and sammy party. You can entertainy and have fun with just about any food.
Chattes, when I first met with Lady #1, I knew immediately, she was a keeper.
A breakfast for dinner party sounds like a great time! Of course, I would have served bloody mary's too. I just love those!
Trust me ... they certainly sucked down those Bloody Mary's,
