My parents just moved from their long-time house to a nearby condo. I’d like to make an “inaugural” dinner for them and their two best friends. So 4 total – I’ll be cooking, serving and fiddling with the music – I want to cook & wait on them hand and foot, not dine with them.
I’m just tired of doing steak, roasted rosemary potatoes and string beans with almonds for an older group.
I live close by so can do most of the prep at home. They have a standard, small kitchen (gas range, single oven with broiler) and an outdoor grill (small 2 burner).
Group: 4, ages 75 - 87
Needs: low sodium, no tomatoes, no onions, no excessive garlic, no legumes/beans, no peppers, no hot spices, and nothing that might require Tums or a wheelchair afterward
Steak, lamb, fish, shellfish are fine. Pork too – but maybe not celebratory enough?
Desert is covered.
I would love your ideas. Thanks.
