A Special 80th Birthday – Part 2 – Lunch

Welcome Back for the Second Part of my Aunt’s 80th Birthday Party.   Part 2 will focus on what was served for her birthday lunch. In Part 1 I mentioned the importance of knowing your guest of honor.  For instance my aunt has some dietary restrictions so food needs to be something that is easily swallowed.  I didn’t want her celebration to have food that was different from what others were eating so I planned a soup she could eat, a liquid salad for her (I juiced) and an ice cream bar for dessert.  Then I supplemented with other dishes for others to choose from.  If you missed Part 1 – Activities you can get caught up HERE.
