Nursing Home Thanksgiving

DaisyM | Jul 1, 2012 05:53 AM

Just starting to think about a family dinner at a nursing home. This is the first time we'd be doing this so I'd appreciate any help and suggestions.

I'm trying to create a menu that is festive, easily transportable, with most dishes acceptable for a diabetic, and that can be served at room temp. (Oh, boy this seems like a daunting task!)

So, far:

Smoked salmon with black bread
White fish salad on cucumber slices
Cheese and crackers
Crudite.

Turkey roulade filled with stuffing

Roasted green beans with almonds
Roasted brussel sprouts
Cranberry Sauce

Apple & Pumpkin Pie
Fruit Salad

I'm stuck on mashed potatoes. Is there a way to keep them warm in the car? Any other dishes that would work at room temp?

Thank you for any hints on what has worked for you.
